Here is a nice little write up by The Farm Escape after a stay in our Bed and Breakfast……. read article here[Read more…] about Not just another Grampians Winery
<![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.

<![CDATA[Andrew and I enjoyed a break recently and while travelling in Europe we stayed with a family we know who live on a farm in Burgundy. To supplement the farm income they built and sustain a large fruit and vegetable garden in their backyard.
They also started a little produce store next to their house where they pick their produce in the morning to sell that day. The store sells their fruit and vegetables as well as all other local produce including meats, cheese (mmmm the french know how to make cheese), preserves and more.
The local village is nearby and they get some passing trade from cyclists and the odd small canal boat, but predominately is supported by locals buying locally.
Each night, the family all help to prepare the meal and all sit down to eat together, and of course drink amazing wines.
I found it very inspiring and a bit sad that it is not the ‘norm’ for all of this here in Australia.
I am sharing some photos to give you an idea.]]>
