March 2021

The 2021 harvest has been interesting and relatively unpredictable in most areas despite most soil moisture conditions being a lot better. The excellent rains we received in 2020 meant that most dams managed to fill nicely. The weather during harvest season, which started early January, has seen cooler picking conditions with higher yields and reports of excellent quality fruit which bodes for a good vintage overall!

The revised Lockdown 1 announced from the 1st March has allowed us to reopen as follows:
