Hope the rain holds off - grapes looking good!


Rain rain go away - come again another day!

Grape harvest kicks into gear earlier than expected this year due to the threat of heavy rain during the week.  Hopefully the moisture holds off this weekend and doesnt hit the grape boys too hard!  Its been a vintage summer until now, with lovely hot dry days and temperatures up in the mid thirties.  Hydralada Company have  again sold numbers of new Pellenc Optimum Selectiv Process Harvesters into New Zealand vineyards which while exciting makes them very busy with commissioning and aftersales support.  Strong demand for Pellenc Harvesters continues due to the unique job these high tech French machines do picking grapes.   Winery's  often ask that their grapes are harvested with Seleciv' Process knowing they will get an excellent sample delivered to their vats.    Find out more about these machines and visit the Hydralada website
