We've know for some time that the quantity of grapes is going to be well down on our bumper crop last year but we have been surprised by the ripeness of the grapes. Our Pinot Noir when pressed had the equivalent of 13.5% natural alcohol - equal to many hot climate reds!
We will be picking our final late ripening grape variety Seyval Blanc on Friday and over the weekend - do come and help us for an hour or so (and see the vineyard) if you can - details below.
Friday 14th Oct - 9am till 4pm - Clyst St George Vineyard (EX3 0NZ) harvesting our Seyval Blanc grapes
Saturday 15th Oct - 11am till 2pm Ebford Vineyard (EX3 0QU) - picking our Seyval Blanc grapes
Sunday 16th Oct - 9am till 11:30am Ebford Vineyard (EX3 0QU) - picking our Seyval Blanc grapes
