Harvest at The Mount Vineyard is always a wonderful time for celebration
Sadly, this year we suffered several bouts of severe frost in mid-May when the young shoots were at their most vulnerable. However, luckily, with an efficacious spray programme and subsequent favourable weather conditions, the vines recovered well and the grapes developed disease-free. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to welcome our usual team of volunteers for the annual Harvest Celebration so this year all ten acres were picked by Vineworks on two separate dates and then sent off to Litmus Winery in Dorking to be made into three different wines – a still red, a still white and a sparkling rose. We can’t wait to add these new wines to our menu and hope to welcome our harvest volunteers back next year.
