We have commenced the 2017 harvest of our grapes across the vineyard. The cooler ripening conditions we have had leading up to this 2017 vintage have been ideal where we commenced picking Pinot and Chardonnay mid March and are still continuing through out April with Fiano, Shiraz, Sangiovese and Nebiollo.

Where in comparison to the 2016 vintage all our grapes had been harvested by late February due to the warmer weather experienced. The growing season this year has been wonderful where we have had an abundance of rainfall early in the season and cooler weather conditions leading to a slow ripening period leading up our grapes reaching optimal qualities to decide it was the right time to harvest.
