Plans for the tasting
rooms and barrel store are complete and if all goes to plan the development
will be finished to show our 2000 vintage reds and 2001 vintage whites
- approx August/Sept this year.For those who may be in the Ferguson Valley
in the spring, drop in and have a look (see the vineyard page for location).
By the way, there is only about 90 cases of the semillon left!!
A limited amount of our precious Semillon will be available at the end
of August if all goes to plan with the bottling.
Shiraz and Merlot wont be available until August 2001 when it comes off
American and French oak. It will be worth the wait!!
