  • Springing into summer
    on Nov 16, 2010 in Family Viticulture
    It’s mid November and we are having 30 degree days already – it seems that spring has quickly been bypassed by summer and you can almost see the vines growing.  We have a bit of bud rubbing to do but otherwise things are fairly quiet on...
  • Getting on top of things again…
    on Sep 15, 2010 in Viticulture Wine
    What a great feeling it is to have the pruning all done and dusted for another year.  We finished cutting, stripping and tying down (went through almost 10 000 ties) the last of our vines a week or so ago.  Our sincere thanks go out again to tho...
  • Back from Australia
    on Jul 29, 2010 in Family Marketing Viticulture
    We’ve returned from a trip to Australia that involved a mixture of business and pleasure.  It began with a random meeting with John Key at the Blenheim airport  –  he came over for a chat…only in New Zealand!   In Aussie, it...
  • New website
    on Jun 15, 2010 in Family
    I’ve been a bit distracted lately with my teacher and mum roles taking priority over being the winemaker’s wife ;-).   I’ve put together a new website:  to offer a bit of help to parents and grandparents...

  • Due date…
    on Apr 13, 2010 in Viticulture
    The countdown is on until our 2010 grapes are harvested and while obviously nowhere near as important, there are some parallels to being expectant parents.  You have this date (April 17 for us) that your data projects as the likely harvest day but r...

    Aaron is now on night shift…got a text from him Saturday night saying:  “At hos hurt hand got 11 stitches, may need skin graft, all good tho, dont panic.” He is of course aware that I’m prone to panic when anyone gets injure...
  • Ready, set, GO!
    on Mar 22, 2010 in Family Viticulture
    The fruit is ripening and vintage is almost upon us…the calm before the storm is about to come to an end!  Aaron is back working full-time at Indevin to help out over the next couple of months with all the fruit coming in.  Today they had...
  • cancer testing: a fiasco,a misunderstanding or a mystery?
    on Feb 25, 2010 in Family Fiascos Uncategorized
    This post has nothing to do with wine but is something I’ve been pondering … On Wednesday we went as a family to the funeral of Annabel Cooke, a friend who passed away young after battling cancer.  She was an amazing wife and mother but...
  • Marlborough Wine festival sold out
    on Feb 8, 2010 in Family Marketing
    This year’s Marlborough Wine Festival has officially sold out of its 8000 tickets (although there are some floating about on Trade Me).  I was interested to see how sales would go as there seems to be an ever increasing number of events compe...
