As the land starts to take on its distinctive colour, the Autumn harvests start.
Of course the grapes for the next wine vintage are a big part of this in our valley, and we visited one of our favourite local suppliers down the road to see them in action.
This lovely vineyard, high on the hill with fabulous views, is typical of what is happening in our valley. Smaller, family vineyards have for years supplied the grapes that have made the name and won the medals for many of the large winemaking brands on the mainland.
These family concerns, largely unheralded, have been producing the premium fruit that has commanded many times the price of mainland grapes.
But there haas been a revolution quietly stirring, and now these families have branched out into using their grapes to lovingly produce their own branded wines.
We have so many premium wines in our valley.
Guests staying at Woodbridge can experience this first hand and our staff will be pleased to assist with creating a wine experience tailored just for you.
