Well whilst some have been winding down from Christmas celebrations and getting ready for New Year,
here at Vineyard 28 we do it a little differently. Been away early the last two mornings to beat the heat,
up to the Wildwater Vineyard to spend some time looking after the Muscat grafts. Excellent growth overall.
