SNIP & SIP TIPS:
- Perhaps the least glamorous thing about winemaking is what you have to wear; waterproof clothes, shoes or boots enabling your moove freely, and that protects you from sharp vines,
- Grape picking is a sticky business, so bring along a pair of dishwashing gloves (they’re nice and flexible).
- Don’t forget to bring along a sun hat, sun screen and a bottle of water.
- If getting down and dirty isn’t quite your cup of ’’wine’’, then why not meeting our winemaking team or simply go wine tasting and enjoy summer at the estate.
- Don’t forget to charge your phone/camera to immortalise those great moments,
- Lastly, remember to have fun!
