Harvest is an intense time of year in vineyard and winery life. To say that we have a lot on our plate would be a giant understatement. Sampling, maintaining bird nets, visiting supplier vineyards, servicing the harvester before and after each use, pressing- crushing – de-stemming grapes, coordinating fruit deliveries from the high plains, and of course making wine. It is quite simply a lot.
You might think harvest is only about the grapes, but it is also about the people. As we are a small team, everyone is incredibly hands on in multiple facets of the Brennan Vineyards production. Towards the middle of harvest smiles start to fade a little, achey backs flare up, and everyone needs a nap.
