What's Happening at Hitchen
We had a lovely sunny weekend for our open weekend. It was such a pleasure to see so many old friends and new faces here. Lots of people took the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather picnic in the garden and wander in the vineyard. Remember that you can always visit us but it is a good idea to ring first just to make sure we are home.
With that behind us we now have to get ready for the harvest. The grapes look in fantastic condition. Unfortunately the birds think so too and they try very hard to get through the nets and are sometimes successful. Jess (our dog) takes the responsibility of patrolling the nets with Ken very seriously.
The latest testing shows that we are around 3 weeks away from harvest.
