Today is the winter solstice day in the Southern Hemisphere, 21st June >>

While the days will now start to lengthen, today marks the beginning of true winter and the coldest part of the year is about to kick in. Almost all of the leaves have gone from the vines and shortly prunning will begin. Later in the year we will be sending out invitations for our 2013 en primeur, possibly our best vintage yet. Hope you will join us.
