An Introduction to Viticulture & Winemaking

by Augustus Dale

Viticulture & Winemaking is a short introduction to the cultivation of grapes and making of wine – for wine lovers and the curious, who want to expand their knowledge about how wine is produced.

Increased knowledge and understanding leads to greater appreciation and enjoyment.

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
~ Ernest Hemingway

Visits to the farm may be possible, however, we are not open to the public so, in order to avoid disappointment, booking an appointment is essential and will require at least 24hrs notice. We are not available on Sundays or Public Holidays.
