Vintage 2017 was an extra special one for us because we were able to crush our own grapes at our brand new, on-site winery!
The 100 tonne capacity winery was built with our business partners, Tim and Sheena High of Native Point Wines.
We were a little relieved that vintage started a couple of weeks later this year. But thanks to good project management, our wonderful builders (d2Spaces) and terrific suppliers, the 100% solar powered winery was completed just in time for vintage.
With brand new equipment, powered by solar, a lot could have gone wrong but it all went pretty well. Unusual weather conditions throughout the growing season had led to yields being down in some varieties but warm and dry conditions leading up to harvest were very welcome.
