Winery Walkabout 2016 Photo Library

Monday, June 27, 2016


We had a blast this year at Winery Walkabout, one of Victoria's biggest wine festivals. Great weather meant the crowds could enjoy the sunshine (except for a wet and windy 20 minute stint on Saturday) and the George McFloyd Blues Band kept everyone's toes tapping. There was a touch of excitement when a shuttle bus got bogged but it wouldn't be a country festival without a tractor to save the day.  Here's a selection of photos from #WineryWalkabout2016 and we look forward to seeing old and new faces next year! Continue reading...

Vintage 2016 Natasha's Report

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

As is usual for vintage, it was days of frenetic activity as this early fruit came in, followed by a bit of a “phony vintage” lull, and then it all kicked off again. Continue reading...

Vintage 2016 Vineyard Report

Friday, May 27, 2016

The journey to harvest in 2016 proved to be a bumpy ride. Winter and spring of 2015 were both warmer than usual, with October and November giving us unusual temperature spikes 6°C above average.  Whilst many people were delighted with an early start to summer (we at least were pleased about the lack of frosts in September and October), our vineyards experienced very early flowering patterns as a result of the warmer weather.  Continue reading...
