Vintage Looms

Vintage time is almost upon us. It is just a matter of weeks before we will begin harvest at Uleybury Wines. This time of the year is very busy as there is always a vine requiring a little or a lot of TLC.

We are flat out keeping the birds away from our tasty grapes and watching the berries change colour. The changing of colours in our bunches is called veraison. This period is the transition from berry growth to ripening. Our fruit is developing characters, colours, flavours which will all determine the taste and quality of our wine in the future.
