Julian's January 2018 Newsletter

Happy New Year Fellow Vondelingers!

I hope 2018 turns out to be a cracking year.

Here on the farm, the harvest is late (surprising taking into account the hot and dry conditions), but we started picking yesterday. 5 tons of chardonnay for our bubbly Rurale (Methode Ancestral). It's quite a process to make as it involves perfect timing from Matthew. Read more on what makes Methode Ancestral so special here.

The picture of Matt the Winemaker’s “back-of-a-fag-packet” figures is of sugar readings taken in various vineyard blocks which gives us an idea of the premium time to pick, although we usually just go on taste. The other is a picture of Matt catching some relaxation time with Henry before harvest starts.
