What's Happening at Hitchen
We are back from a wonderful bike trip from Dusseldorf to Warsaw. The grapes are bursting with new life, this year’s Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Rose are off to the bottlers and our Montipulciano is now in stock.
Now is therefore the time to invite you to the vineyard to taste our wines and view the latest art exhibition we have on display. Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th November 9.30am - 4.30pm.
This year we have three artists displaying their works: local Franklin artist Rosemary Stoppard has returned from another trip on the waterways of France on their barge and is exhibiting her watercolours. Her exhibition will also include a selection of her mixed media works.
Sally Blyth is an artist well known for her passion for masks and her entries in the World of Wearable Arts Shows. Inks are the current focus of her work and she will have both wall masks and inkworks on display.
Jo Dalgety will have smaller watercolour and charcoal works on display and says "My work is about memory and experience – the paintings are less about the land but more about the people who occupy or occupied it."
The wines we have available for tasting are 2013 Chardonnay, 2013 Pinot Gris, 2013 Pinotage, 2013 Sangiovese, 2013 Multepulciano (yes, we have a little more stock of this), 2013 Pinotage and 2011 Rose.
We invite you to come and taste new wines and become reacquainted with our old ones. Why not bring a picnic to enjoy it in the vineyard or garden? Our wine will be available for sale by the bottle or by the case. Our artists of course will have their work for sale.
