September vineyard blog

by / Friday, 27 September 2019 / Published in Uncategorized

With the 2019 harvest now underway at Denbies, our winery and vineyard team are busy measuring grape sugars, harvesting grapes and transporting them into the winery for their first pressing.  As predicted, Solaris was the first varietal to ripen, with these full, ripe golden berries hand-harvested from the Dell in the early autumn sunshine.

Rondo then followed soon after, which will join the Solaris to form part of our 2019 Rose Hill blend.

The team are now busily picking Ortega in our Park West area of the vineyard.  We will move on to hand-harvesting our premium Bacchus from the Hollow next week, from which we will produce varietal Bacchus 2019, both still and sparkling.

Despite more varied weather conditions during 2019 compared with 2018 and a later start to the growing season, the quality of the fruit is excellent, offering a harvest of great potential.

Denbies Vineyard Hotel restaurant is now open for dining every evening, with a brand new autumn menu and gorgeous views over Denbies vineyard. With all rooms in both wings of the hotel, The Farmhouse and The Brokes, now fully finished, we are delighted to be welcoming guests to explore our estate at one of the most glorious times of the vineyard year.
