Our events give winelovers a great opportunity visit our winery – meet us, enjoy the company of other winelovers, try our latest vintages, new releases, and occasionally some old ones too, and partake of a delicious meal – just have a great day out!
We love to use our terrace and winery lawn when the sun is out – and it usually is in the Swan Valley. As well we have had some terrific events in our cellar door. We have even used the winery and our new barrel shed. What ever we do we make sure everyone is comfortable and we have plenty of room.
All our events have a theme – Harvest Breakfast – Reserve Release Dinner – Winter Benchmark Tasting – Bring Your Favourite Bottle – Spring Long Table Lunch – Xmas BBQ. And all offer a superb day or evening out – and exceptional value. And of course a visit to our Swan Valley home is a great chance to stock up on some great wine.
So check the dates below and come along!
2019 Budburst Vineyard Tour
September is our busiest month in the vineyard. The vines are beginning to burst now, and we’ll be watching their growth, as well as the weeds. It’s time to service our equipment, test the irrigation, order in fungicides. We’ve got to spread fertiliser, slash the weeds and monitor the weather for disease conditions. There are trellis repairs and foliage wires to be lowered. We’ll apply preventative sprays for disease and keep an eye out for kangaroos and mites and thrips and snails – green snails, Italian snails, and common garden snails.
There’s plenty of work and plenty to worry about but we’ll find time to host a casual platter lunch with wines followed by a leisurely tour of the vineyard with John. Why not join us to see how the new season is shaping up?
