Harvest is just round the corner - can you help?

posted 25 Sep 2014, 15:44 by Warden Abbey Vineyard   [ updated 22 May 2016, 03:57 ]

With these warm September days ripening the grapes nicely, we're planning to pick on:

  • Sunday 5th October
  • Saturday 11th October
Any changes to the days will be posted on this website.
Please do come and help - we need a lot of pickers. Harvest day is hard work but it is always a lot of fun and immensely satisfying. We start at 8.30 am so that we can get the lorry away to the winery by around 4pm.  We'll be laying on a delicious lunch with wine. Full instruction will be given so newcomers are very welcome, and it will also be lovely to catch up with those of you who are veterans.  Please note that pickers need to be aged 16 or over.

If you can help, please do let us know so that we can get an idea of numbers for catering. Please email Jane as soon as possible (by Wednesday 1st October would be really helpful) or tel 07981 113714, saying what days you will be coming.  We will then send you the full instructions about the day and what you will need.
