One down and one to go - on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week Fiona and her team brought in respectively Pinot Noir for the 'Defiance Pinot Noir', the Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling thus completing the harvest on this young vineyard (it is just our second harvest from Defiance).  With time to spare on Thursday and inclement weather forecast for Friday - tractors, bins and pickers were quickly relocated to Domain Road vineyard where the week was finished off by picking the Pinot from Domain Road destined for Pinot Noir Rosé.  

Our team, from Chile, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany (plus an older Kiwi!!) have worked very hard to get the fruit in from Defiance in seven days and are now having a well earned rest until we start the main harvest from Domain Road. 

Photos show the Pinot Noir destined for the Defiance Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc grapes on the vine and in the bins, Riesling waiting to be picked, and our team, still smiling, after finishing another hard days work (Thanks Fiona for the photos!).
