I can’t believe how every year vintage seems to come around quicker than the previous. The hot spring and early summer has certainly put the thumb screws on our preparations for vintage 2016. Excited as always to try new things in the winery and push the styles around.

We irrigated before Christmas which is the first time in 40 years of grape growing here in Wonga Park. Thankfully the vines look super happy and the crops look solid.

Down on the farm

Ella (our grey mare) had a grey foal on Friday the 8th January. He is a colt and his name is Nimbus. If you come out to the winery you’ll see him with his mum in the paddock next to our gardens.
