Ten Questions with Milton Wordley

Julian and Adam met with Milton Wordley Photographer earlier this year, to chat about all things Castagna, as part of Milton’s ‘People of Wine: Ten Questions’ project.

Covering everything from biodynamics and viticulture, to Julian’s personal history and wine making views, this interview is well worth a read. Click here to get a fascinating glimpse into the history and philosophy of Castagna, as well as some delightful images.

At last, a quiet moment. Just my brother and I.

Vintage 2016. Almost done. 

The pressing part of Vintage 2016 is nearly done. It’s sticky, grapey work but someone has to do it! Adam has just pressed one of our whites fermented on skins. For those of you curious to experience whites with skin contact, head to our Wines page for tasting notes for our yummy 2013 Grower’s Selection Harlequin.
