Hands on Harvest at Graham Beck Wines, Robertson

The Robertson Wine Valley is proud to host its second Hands-on-Harvest festival. The boutique event will take place 26th February 2010 and offers wine aficionados and budding vintners a chance to experience the magic of harvest for a day – without having to quit their day jobs!

HOSTS: Winemaker Irene Waller, Viticulturist Marco Ventrella.

Programme:

Arrive at Graham Beck Wines’ Robertson Cellar just before 08h00 with your rough work clothes and closed shoes – dress lightly and bring a hat. Join Marco and the Graham Beck picking team in the vineyard. See what back-breaking work it is to cut grapes and carry a full basket to the waiting trailer. Take a quick break for a well earned breakfast, then crush and destem your grapes and start the fermentation of your own juice – guided by Irene, our Robertson Winemaker. After tasting the progress of other ferments in the winery, retire for a light lunch with a glass or two of Graham Beck Wines and bubblies to celebrate your maiden vintage harvest experience.
