Recommendation from 2022 Red winemaking day

“Just a quick note to say thank you for our great experience with you. 

When we take a sip from our glass, we will think of your enthusiasm and passion, and the great time we had picking the grapes and making our Wine! “

 

Your winemaking experience is split into 2 mornings. On the first day, (probably 14th or 21st September – please keep these dates free)  you will meet the winemaker at 10am, for coffee, and discuss how to harvest the grapes, and the first stages of winemaking. At about 10:30, you and a guest will go out into the vineyard and harvest enough fruit to make your wine. Depending on the year, the grapes will either be Pinot Noir, Acolon, Rondo or Dornfelder.

After bringing the grapes to the winery, with help, you’ll be able to put your grapes through the crusher, into a fermenting bin. You’ll then be able to add yeast to get the ferment started. To finish the day, you’ll have a tasting of our award-winning wines.

The second morning will take place in mid February, where you will be able to filter and bottle your wine, ready to take home. If you are available, and wish to, you can get involved with pressing the grapes to extract the wine.  During the winter your wine will be monitored as well as racked, to prepare if for bottling. You are more than welcome to bring a “helper” along for the day.

Harvest date will be confirmed by mid August, so the grapes can be picked in perfect conditon. The picking day will always be a Saturday, and is normally one of the last weekends in September.

This experience is limited to a maxium of 5 couples.

 

This experience will also be available in 2025, but dates are not fixed yet.   

A voucher will be posted out to the recipient. Free Postage.
