Experiences

Have you ever wanted to look past the cellar door to see how artisan producers really grow and make wine? Please come and join us for a closer look behind the scenes, meet the people who have dedicated their lives to working the land and making wine, and learn about all the decisive intricacies that ultimately make the difference between a good wine and a great one!

TASTING TERROIR AMONG THE VINES |

We invite you on a journey through our vineyard with either Chris or Jo, the owners of Windows Estate who single-handedly operate it to this day. Learn about what we feel is the most important part of the winemaking process - the countless hours of vineyard work Chris has invested over the last 20 years. We will talk in detail about a broad range of factors influencing wine quality and style. Soil types and their suitability for different grape varieties, clonal selection, row orientation, pruning techniques along with organic weed and pest management through biodiversity. These are just some of the topics that will be covered, all with the aim of giving you a much deeper understanding of how vineyard management ultimately determines what have you have in the glass in front of you at the end of the day. 

Following the walk you will enjoy a private tasting among the vines with Zalto Denkart stemware where we connect the dots and show you how the specific particularities of our vineyard and Chris' decisions with regards to its management shape the character of our wines.
