What's Happening at Hitchen
The very wet late summer has made this a very difficult year. The grapes on the whole remained in good order and we were very pleased that we were able to harvest Chardonnay, Pinotage, Dolcetto and Montipulciano in good condition. This wine is now sleeping the winter away.
The very big news is that we have sold the vineyard and move at the end of February 2018 so this is our last vintage. Naturally, we have very mixed feelings about this. The development of the vineyard has been such an important part of our lives in the last 20years and we feel proud of the quality of the wines we have been able to produce.
The good news for you is that in an effort to make our shift easier we are selling all our wines at $100 a dozen (plus courier fee). We still have available Pinotage, Dolcetto, Montipulciano, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. You can order this either by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org or by the order form on this site.
