Another vintage comes to an end and we have tucked our Shiraz and Grenache barrels away. This year was truly a family affair!
This year we had help from all the parents. Wayne helped with shovelling Shiraz into the basket press. A few weeks later, Kaye came to visit for Sarah’s birthday and helped hand-pick the Grenache alongside the fruit pickers. For Easter Mike & Kristine came to visit, and Mike rolled up his sleeves to shovel Grenache into the press.
We suspect our families may re-think visiting us during vintage time next year! The help was greatly appreciated by us.
