End of a ‘challenging’ grape season: Millton
One of the oldest biodynamic estates in the world says they don’t need chemicals in a great environment like this. SOME of the last grapes in the district came off the vines at Manutuke yesterday, marking the end of a challenging season for Millton Vineyards and Winery. “It is the saddest day of the year for us. We have to wait one year to enjoy the fruits of our labour but when you work this hard it is an enjoyment as well,” says winemaker James Millton.
