Induction Vineyard tour taken by Chris Scott. During induction we also covered health and safety and the different wines produced by Church Road Winery and their place in the market.
Highlights One of my main jobs during vintage was managing red fermentations, all red ferments this year were rummaged, I also micro-oxygenated them. At the end Amy and I dug out an 18’000L Cuve... It was awesome!
