Vintage 2013 is here!
It has been full steam ahead with harvest and vintage here at Paracombe and picking of the 2013 vintage is coming to a close.
With a warm, dry season, yields are lower this year, but quality is right up there. The flavours are intense and we are pretty excited with the fruit that is coming off the vines. If you want to follow the vintage at Paracombe in pictures,also check out our Facebook page by clicking here
