HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE I am starting to understand how Noah must have felt; it hasn't stopped raining!!! Another ~200mm of rain for August!
Regardless, work in the vineyard goes on. We have finished raking up the vine cuttings and the place is looking good. Regardless, of the cold and wet weather we have bud burst in the Chardonnay block. We continue this month with maintenance of wires and posts, ready for Spring to spring... Had a good couple of weekends at the Taste of the Blackwood and Nannup Flower & Garden Festival, where we met some great people and talked and tasted wine; thanks to those for coming and making our events so enjoyable!
The 2012 Shiraz & Mulled Wine Recipe was a hit and so was the 2013 Shiraz, which has sadly sold out!!
