NZ Organic Wine Awards: 'Sustainable Vineyard of the Year 2024' plus 2 Gold and 2 Silver Medals. Full details

Harvest Complete

With clockwork precision the final bucket of grapes from the 2009 harvest were emptied into the bin as the clock struck 5:00 p.m. on Friday. This was perfect timing, as the truck was busy being loaded with our day’s pickings, to whisk the grapes off to the winery!

In contrast to the last vintage it was our Redbank Riesling that was the last to be harvested; last year it was the first! Everything else was pretty much to schedule, albeit a week ahead of last year. Needless to say, it, as always, is a relief to have this crucial task for the year behind us!

Mike is pleased to have his first harvest at the helm behind him, and was seen racing out the gate to join in the start of the duck shooting season, and a spot of fishing. No doubt a well earned break after many nights enduring frost fighting over the past couple of weeks.

FOOTNOTE: The Proprietor somehow mysteriously absent for harvest – anything that involves perspiration, back bending and so on he tends to regard with a certain hauteur. Idleness in other words.
