Winemaking 2009….

Everyone starting to pick the heavily laden grape vine…

Here are all the harvesters….

Kye treading the grapes and everyone else is waiting eagerly for a turn…

All the crushed grape skins, stalks and juice are placed in a barrel for a few days, then we will sieve it and remove all the pulp. It will then be poured into a barrel to ferment for a few months and then we will have wonderful wine….

Jenna is learning about the Ancient Greeks at the moment, so this ties in nicely with that….(how wine was processed in Ancient Greece).

Even a Grey Lourie came to watch us from the tree tops…

And Richard did his 2nd race on Saturday, well done Richiroo….

    What a great learning experience. I would love to make wine. Reminds me of ‘I love Lucy” Did you ever see that show where the ladies are stomping on grapes?
