As is tradition, we welcomed the 2023 vintage crew and what marks the start of the picking season at our annual barbeque on Monday morning, christening the beginning of vintage with an egg and bacon roll. The team includes some specialist winemakers who have joined us from around the world, alongside our longstanding winemaking and viticulture teams. The action began with the first overnight harvest at our Adams Road Vineyard on Monday night, followed by the first hand harvest of our Gibraltar Chardonnay blocks with teams continuing to pick throughout the week.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up for the all-important job to help us handpick the grapes this season. We look forward to sharing more behind-the-scenes vintage action over the coming weeks.
