Picking is finished for 2014!

Picking is finished for 2014!

Picking finished yesterday! After a very busy last few days it's a wonderful feeling to get all the grapes safely into the winery - and so far it looks like an excellent crop.


Picking Home Vineyard on Saturday


Crates are taken by tractor straight up to the winery so that they can be pressed in as short a time as possible


Traffic jam just outside the winery!


It's heavy work loading those presses....

We had a team of professional pickers as last year, but we'd also like to say a huge thank you to those friends and Club Members who came along to help. It was great to have so many hands on deck and we hope you enjoyed the whole experience as much as we did.


Friends helping out in the vineyards last thursday


I've got some vine secateurs and I know how to use them.....


Time to party! The grapes are in!!
