From the classroom to the vineyards
It was all hands on deck this week, as Gladstone High School began the massive task of harvesting their grapes for vintage. The school operates a vineyard under its agricultural program, and chemistry students are able to put their skills to the test with the actual winemaking. This year’s quality is looking outstanding, something agricultural teacher Dean Humphries is quite proud of. Across the three acres, the school collects one tonne of grapes to make their own Shiraz, and five tonnes goes to Taylor’s Wines in Clare, reports The Flinders News.
