Harvest 2021 – Time is of the essence – join us!
Harvest 2021, time is of the essence.
But who decides when it’s time to harvest? Ultimately the grapes decide when it will actually happen. The decision is made on the sugar and acid readings from the grapes.
Some would do a dance or a chant, at Southcott Vineyard we let the bubbles speak, we let the fizz whisper to the vines.
The Fizz murmurs in the glass … grapes, grapes, wake up and soak up the sun so for it, the Veraison will be complete.”
Slowly be surely we see the magic happening, the grapes are starting to ripen. Ripening is on its way, the colours are changing, deepening!
The harvest is done by hand and you can take part, so during Harvest week, we welcome all our lovely local pickers, volunteers at Southcott.
Everybody works hard to the sound of people talking and laughing. Sarah provides a light buffet lunch.
The grapes are not yet ready, but if all goes all Harvest might happen at the end of October, most likely on Friday 29th October.
Starting time: 09.00am
