Winemaking, Pruning, Tasting & Craft Beer
Over the Queen’s Birthday weekend, the 11th, 12th & 13th of June, we’ll be helping our 2016 batch of Rent-A-Row Winemakers to rack off their wine to a fresh demijohn, removing sediment built up from pressing. (Those that can’t attend can schedule an alternate weekend, or organise for us to do this for you).
In addition to racking, we will be hosting a hands-on pruning demonstration in our vineyard and running a blind tasting of citizen wines (amateur wines made from our grapes) next to commercial Shiraz wines.
As always, we will be offering vertical tastings of our own Shiraz wines and all going well, this weekend will be a ‘soft launch’ of our nanobrewery, Cornella Real, with craft beer tastings and a pool competition running on the Sunday night.
We hope to see some of our citizens over the weekend – friends & family are of course welcome! It’s truly a great weekend to be around Heathcote with so much going on for Heathcote On Show.
