Become a winemaker! This is a great experience for you or a friend to become a winemaker. From our vineyard you will be able to pick the grapes, crush the fruit, and finish off with 6 bottles of wine.

Your winemaking experience is split into 2 mornings. On the first day, 26th October 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, 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 on the 22nd 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. This will be done on the 2nd November. 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.
This experience will also be available in 2022, but dates are not fixed yet.
