Pruning underway here at Black Ridge June 06, 2017 11:49

Winter has come in with a hiss and a roar and as I sit here writing it is still -5 degrees outside!

While it is not pleasant working in these conditions, winter dormancy ensures that the vine goes through a period of rest and allows us to prune each vine to maximize fruit quality and yield for the coming season.

We've just started pruning here at Black Ridge, we assess the health of each vine and prune accordingly. It is one of the most important jobs to get right. Here is Pam, our vineyard supervisor, out in the cold.

Our cellar door is still open 11am -5pm Mon to Fri so if you need to top up your Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon supplies for winter do come in and say hi!
