Our winegrower update
as Autumn becomes Winter
Every year at this time, we revel in the silence that late autumn and winter brings to the vineyards.
It is the only time of year when the vineyards are truly quiet. You really notice this when you live in one. No tractors, no cars, no people. It is broken for a short period when the pruning teams arrive, but otherwise it’s just quiet. Winter dormancy gives all of us a break.
Inside it’s a little hectic, there is a lot of waxing going on as we ready our Novum chardonnay bottles for release. This is all done by hand and it is a big job. No bottle will look the same, and we like that. Some fab 5 star reviews are already coming in. We are pretty excited and are very happy with this wine.
Release date for our inaugural Novum Chardonnay is Tuesday 26th June at 9am.
