Well Vintage came and went. It was very busy with a newborn baby. Hence writing the blog post now in August?? But I took so many great photo's it's a shame not to share them.
Baby and I early morning, Boys picking our Chardonnay in teh Background.
Great sunrise. Early mornings are the best here at Galafrey, Peaceful and beautiful.
The boys brought a truck! To help cart grapes among other things but lets be honest, It's another toy for the boys!
handpicking our Pinot Noir. Beautiful fruit and baby sleeping throughout it.
Look at the colour! No wonder our pinot has SO Much flavour!
Merlot grapes hanging out waiting to be picked.
Pinot being pump into vat.
hand processing the pinot
The old pump. Very heavy, solid unit but does the job!
Storming days at vintage.
Grape juice being tested in the lab.
Rainbow over the vineyard but where is the pot of gold?
Another stunning sunrise
Grading the driveway- more trucks and toys for busy boys!
Riesling trails- getting ready for bottling asap.
Piggy for end of vintage windup. the Great Southern Wine Producers put on a shindig and it was held here at Galafrey. All the local winemakers and vintage crew. Pig on spit and new release wines. Great day!
