If you would like to come on one of our Winery Tours click here. otherwise have a look below at an average year and how much goes into maintaining our vast Vine yard.
We use the Destalker. As the crops enter the top of the Destalker, leaves and stems are filtered out from the crop as they're passed through a revolving steel holed drum.
Grapes are then pumped and pressed into the tanks whilst all the must is recycled for compost.
Pressing 1200kg over the space of an hour, our press holds an internal canvas bag that blows up and down with the help of a large two way compressor to squeeze the grapes.
Holding 8400litres, the Red wine tank comes equipped with a thermal jacket for temperature regulating for ten to fifteen days storage.
This is where the wine produces it's tannins, colour and flavour from which the drums are constantly rotated for tasting until finally the grapes are pressed.
Equipped with a side pipe, the tank pumps juice from the bottom to the top.
Using a 'swizzler' six times a day, any juice that is pumped up is sprayed to stop the floated skins and pips drying out.
