With a few days of winter to go Mother Nature let us know it might not be over just yet. We've had over 100mm of rainfall in the last week and with good falls forecast we will exceed averages for August, we've also experienced some very cold crisp frosty mornings! Pruning of our vineyard is now complete. We are continuing to improve our pruning techniques to provide more consistency of yield and improve sap flow throughout the growing season. Soil tests have been completed and we have already commenced our soil improvement programme and will continue to do so during the next few months, weather permitting.
