Give a big hand for going natural
Hand-made, hand-crafted and artisan are more often trendy marketing come-on words to help sell cheeses, chocolates, wines and the like rather than accurate descriptors of how the things are actually made. But at Julieanne and Neil Snare’s 3ha Winstead vineyard at Bagdad, the wines are truly hand-made. There are no pumps, no large hoses snaking between stainless steel tanks, no cooling coils, nothing automatic and no buttons to press. Instead there are an awful lot of big buckets, reports The Mercury.
