Grape Picking

 

 

 

Harvest at Boston Bay Wines

 

Harvest in the Boston Bay vineyard is achieved in the old traditional. Grapes are picked by hand when the grapes are just right for harvest.

Rotary along with other local clubs are invited to participate by providing a team of enthusiastic pickers. Returns to the clubs are generous, being a reward for the amount of effort that clubs provide. 

The Rotary Club of Port Lincoln generally has about twenty or so members participate in the harvest each year. We have been a part of the Ford family vineyard harvests since its inception over 30 years ago. 

Harvest has been on Sundays and has been taking around 3 to 4 hours and is then followed by a light lunch and refreshments kindly organised by the Ford family.
