Even though most people in the North East Victoria would argue this point, it is starting to look like Spring even more here at Castagna Vineyard. We have had above average rainfalls the last month or so, and our vines are looking divine! It’s hard to believe these little shoots will grow taller than the posts and create a wall of cool, dark green leaves, interspersed with bunches of luscious fruit, all ready to be harvested in late Summer, early Autumn next year.
All the animals in our menagerie are enjoying the warmer weather too. We use fowl (both chooks and guinea fowl) as a form of pest control and to enrich our soils. It’s also an amusing past time to sit on the veranda at the end of a long day, glass of something yummy in hand (Castagna of course!) and watch the grandchildren chase the chooks off the vegetable garden for us!
As the weather warms up (or pretends too!) we are busy preparing for the release of our latest wines. Keep an eye on this space for updates on the new wines, or join our mailing list for special offers and mailing-list only invitations.
