It is all go at Resolution Vineyard

It's a fabulous sight at Resolution Vineyard after just 5 weeks.

The vineyard has changed from a blanket of brown twigs to a blanket of new green growth. It is exciting to watch the vines grow.  

We have been busy tucking the vines into their first wires, brush cutting, mowing the lawns, admiring the view from the slide and enjoying the weather!

Even our Olive trees are looking promising for a crop this year.  I admit we know little about olives, olive trees or their potential.  However, that is another exciting curve for which we have commenced crawling up.

Below are two pictures comparing now to 5 weeks ago when the buds were starting to burst.

Time to awaken

The vines have started to wake, albeit slowly. 

A cool start to Spring has resulted in the buds happily staying cool and snug.  But finally the buds have began to open with budburst occurring over the past week.   

This is an exciting time for us, as we anxiously wait to see how the grapes will develop over the coming months.  Hopefully our new fencing and clearing over winter has alleviated the wallaby destruction of the past, resulting in a bumper crop. We will see......

Pruning is now complete!!

Our first attempt at Pruning is complete!! Daniel, Doug and Ellen worked tirelessly at different times over a number of weeks to finish the 26 rows. Along with their support crew, it was all finished in time for Spring to arrive.

Starting off as beginners under instruction from our mentor Peter, it is fair to say everyone has advanced their technique and skill set to the next level.

A fantastic effort by everyone for the first of many pruning's.

Pruning is under way

After thorough instruction from Peter and some fine tuning, our first attempt at pruning is now well underway.  The weather has been relatively kind so far making the days very productive.

Thanks to the dedication and help of our amazing family and friends we are just over half way through and starting to see the results of our hard work.

There is still a lot to do and we are chipping away when we can.  It will be a satisfying achievement once completed.

Harvest 2017

Tuesday was Harvest Day at Resolution Vineyard.  

This day would not be possible without the amazing dedicated and selfless hard work of everyone who came to pick with us. We Thank You!!!

The weather was on and off all morning with showers then sun. It slowly deteriorated after lunch with a drop in temperature and a few good showers resulting in some cold hands and soggy socks.  But the troops soldiered on til every last grape was picked. We delivered 4 bins to our fabulous winemaker Alain, who was kind enough to return to work to accept the crop after close of business, this was much appreciated.

The result was a larger harvest and a longer day than expected, but overall it was a fabulous day with fabulous company and some good tucker to keep everyone ticking.

Thank you again. Now we wait for the magic to happen.......

Harvest 2017 is approaching!

The nets have been on for 6 weeks now and the grapes have been ripening. Slowly.  

We have received instruction from our fabulous winemaker that next week the grapes will be at the optimum ripeness for harvesting. So next Tuesday it is. 

We are looking forward to the next step in the process.....

New Release !! 2016 Pinot Noir

2016 Resolution Pinot Noir has been released. 

A fine young wine, tasted straight from the barrel at Christmas.

Peter and his family all agreed this is a wine with great potential.

Strong soft plum and cherry fruits with a good length even at this early age.

Will improve over the next 4 or 5 years, but most will be drunk long before then.

Available directly from us, the Oyster Cover Fruit and Vegetable Store, the Middleton General Store or various Big Bargain Bottleshops in southern Tasmania.

MIddleton Country Fair 2017

Saturday 4th February 2017

The annual Middleton Country Fair was a fantastic day, with gorgeous weather, scrumptious food, fun atmosphere with lots to see and do.  Impressive scarecrows kept our eyes peeled along our drive from Kettering.  The kids had a great day and so did we.
