Winter is upon us in South Africa…

Posted on

Temperatures are dropping and we are starting to receive some random rain showers. After this incredibly dry summer we are in need of significant rain to fill water reservoirs as we go into winter. The vines’ metabolism is slowing down and our cover-crop already stands 10cm’s high. Leaves are falling and signs of late autumn are evident everywhere. This is the start of our preparation for the 2017 harvest. In less than 2 months we will start our pruning activities which shape our vines in order to allow them to produce their best. In the meantime, we will put all our focus on the fruit of the vine that needs to go to barrels to develop into something that people will enjoy for many years to come.
