Our Philosophy and Reality in the Vale
So what then is our philosophy? More than often, practical reality takes over. However, as our experience increases, we simply try to choose growers that give us a variation of wines with as high quality as possible, or at least as high a quality as we perceive it to be. Interacting with growers is another topic on it’s own. There are limits to what we can do, offering advice to some and hoping that they will follow it or do something better. Grape growing is a risky business and one that is very exposed to seasonal, financial and wine-buying trends. It’s particularly expensive to establish vineyards and requires good decision-making over continuous periods of time. Choosing wise growers with well managed and well situated vineyards is one of our most important decisions in the wine making process! However, there is great competition between wineries to contract the best growers, so choosing between different dry-land grown 100-year old Shiraz vineyards from nice Sites is not realistic, unfortunately! Nevertheless, we try our best!
