The vineyard at Midnight’s Promise is managed with a combination of traditional and modern viticultural practices so as to maximise fruit quality rather than quantity. While it would be nice to say that the grapes are harvested by a team of local maidens, harvesting is usually done by machine at night (often around midnight) so as to ensure that the grapes are cool and sound – a promising start to the winemaking process.
The brand name of the wines – Midnight’s Promise – is an allusion to this practice. Each vintage small quantities of wine are produced under contract by the talented winemakers Bill Sneddon and Matt Burton for release under the Midnight’s Promise label.
The cellar door is open for tasting on public holiday weekends and by appointment. Give them a call!
