Sherwood Estate Wines celebrating 25 years of winegrowing

Harvest is upon us once again!!
Harvest is upon us once again and is running about two weeks ahead of schedule. This is explained by a milder than usual end of winter and a warmer than usual spring.
The first pick of the season was a real team effort by the winery, vineyard, sales and office staff. They all trooped down to the Glasnevin vineyard to hand harvest for our Methode Traditionelle, Laverique! Bubbles are a real "end of the week" favourite of everyone at Sherwood Estate.
We welcome our three harvest interns - Simone from Italy, Paul from France and Daniel from Austria who has returned for a second harvest for us.
The Waipara Valley Wine and Food festival was held on Sunday 23rd March at the Glenmark Domain. The Waipara Valley wine community was well represented with 29 wineries taking part.
The crowd was very relaxed and enthusiastic and seemed to have a very enjoyable day. The weather played its part, the sky was cloudless and the temperature very pleasant. Our Signature Family wines were showcased with our Laverique, Methode Traditionelle, proving the most popular on the day.
