1 pm Wed 4th March 2015. The first grapes have been tipped into the receival bin at the winery signalling the start of harvest. Always a stimulating time and this is my 24th .....still waiting for the excitement to pall ! This vintage we have [along with our permanent staff] two young woman , one from Turkey, one from Canada and a young Frenchman. When I asked the 4th stranger at morning tea where he came from he startled me with his reply that he came from Blenheim !!
