<![CDATA[Its always a roller coaster of emotions at this time of the year. Weather is too hot, too dry, no we don't need rain…. keep up if you can. Add to that wildlife and finding a harmonious balance between wanting to let them drink from the dam and nibble on the grass and not wanting them to decimate our vineyard by nibbling on our grapes!
That said, we have started and our Riesling and Chardonnay has been picked and is at the winery being turned from grapes into wine! Last week we also did a bit of handpicking of our Shiraz.
Things look like they will be a bit quiet this week with everything ramping up again next week and should be all over in time for a break over Easter.
