Akarua celebrates the 2017 harvest, Mon, 13 March 2017

After a challenging season the winery and vineyard team were thrilled to begin the first of the harvest for our sparkling bases on Friday 10th March. Despite variable weather, something Central Otago is renowned for, the fruit was in perfect condition for harvesting and with the sun shining it was all systems go at 7am on our Lowburn vineyard. On Friday alone five tonne was harvested with more fruit coming in across the weekend!

We hope you all have a fantastic harvest and a memorable 2017 vintage...let the fun begin!

Are you 18 or over? If you're under 18 we can't let you in the cellar door.
