Harvest & Winemaking 2022

Crate of Vionier grapes

This week we began harvesting and making wine. The grapes are good quality this year but the baboons, growing in number on the mountain, have taken tons off the crop.

Here the team is picking viognier which is then taken to the winery to be destemmed and crushed, before being pressed. After settling overnight the juice, already delicious in flavour, is put into barrel. Nine or ten months later it will be bottled.
