So spring is well and truly here with new tender green grape shoots emerging and blossom trees full of bees (and the occasional fruit bat at night..hope they don’t like grapes!). So far we have been frost free. Here’s keeping our fingers crossed that we remain so.
Having just written about our Winter Open Cellars Event in June, I suddenly see I need to now write about our Spring Open Cellars Event scheduled for the third weekend of October. We will open along with a number of other local wine producers in the Diamond Valley area, for this special bi-annual event. You can cruise around between a few of them and sample a variety of wines….some produced in very limited quantities, as well as enjoy some specially prepared food and music at some of the locations.
This will be great weekend to sample our new Sparkling Shiraz along with our wide range of dry,sweet and fortified wines. Panton Hill Winery will be producing a nice range of pizzas and antipasto platters along with a special Open Cellars dish of Gnocchi in a creamy Pancetta and mushroom sauce (without pancetta for vegetarians) accompanied by a fresh garden salad (greens from our garden). Panton Hill Tiramisu made with Aromatica Liqueur will be a fitting finale. Try to book for numbers over 4 if you want to eat as well as taste wine. It is recommended for groups with large numbers to give us some warning if they are coming to taste as well.You can find the full brochure on our EVENTS page with maps and information for the day.
Might see you there,
Teunis and Dorothy
