“Discover Felton Road Winery.”
A good winemaker has a thousand ways to make a wine 'better,' but better by whose assessment? It has taken Felton Road Winery over a decade to gradually acquire the confidence to understand that the wine should be what the wine should be. Like any good parent, one should encourage but not mould. If one sees a trait that is perhaps not what one would like to see, the solution lies not in how to cure the problem, but in learning to understand where it came from.
Each year, Felton Road Winery have a new family to raise and their increased understanding can pass back to the new generation's schooling in the vineyard. The vineyards are managed by our own team of viticulturist. Meticulous summer management of a single vertical shoot positioned canopy ensures even and early fruit maturity. Shoot thinning, shoot positioning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all carried out by hand as required, to ensure optimum quality fruit.
They have inter-row planting of various different cover crops in order to assist in controlling vine vigour, improve soil health and general biodiversity. It is their greatest pleasure to host visitors (please note, by prior appointment only) in such lovely new surroundings; and in a detailed and dedicated manner.
