LATEST NEWS - Winter 2018
The vines have lost their leaves now and are taking their annual rest whilst the weather is cold and the daylight hours are short.
That means it's time for us to begin the winter pruning.
This is a task which we enjoy because it takes us out into the vineyard for many days and weeks, into the quieter, peaceful, natural world.
It's also our chance to chat whilst we work about anything and everything. Usually we talk about the kids and the wine of course, in one way or another. We reflect on the season that's been and the one that's coming; what we could do to improve; the state of the market, the world and life in general.
Often we formulate new strategies or develop new ideas during this time, learning from our experiences or those of others.
This winter we'll have a lot to talk about because we have just returned from Spain where we attended the 9th Institute of Masters of Wine International Symposium titled 'Living Wine' where discussion took place over 4 days on all sorts of topics such as what the new generation of consumers are looking for; what new vineyard areas are opening up around the world; how to battle counterfeit wine in the secondary market and a very interesting discussion of 'the secret life of microbes' and their role in terroir. Lots to reflect on here.
After we've finished the pruning, it will be time to prepare for bottling of the new wines in early spring.
We'll get back to you then with the latest news.
We are currently sold out of wine but the 2017 reds and 2018 Rosé will be released in October/November.
The cellar door is scheduled to re-open on Saturday 10 November 2018 at 10.00am.
We look forward to seeing you then if you can make it here.
In the meantime you might enjoy a little video a friend of ours released recently called 'The Spit' about wine tasters and spitting. You can find it here... https://www.thespitfilm.com/
With best wishes,
Drew and Rae Noon.
