Yealands Harvest begins!

Kick off for vintage 2015 at Yealands Family Wines has begun!

Yealands Estate Vineyard Harvest 2015

This morning saw the very first fruit for our 2015 harvest be picked. It was a beautiful morning to harvest, nice and cool (only 1 Degree!) so perfect conditions to bring in the Pinot Noir. We have had a very warm, dry growing season, the flavours are developing well and the bunches are filling out nicely. 

Here’s to a successful V15... Cheers!

PBI and Yealands at the All Blacks v USA Eagles 2014

On 1 November 2014, with the help of Palm Bay International, we experienced our first pre-game tailgate party before the All Blacks v USA Eagles game in Chicago. It was just the third official test between the two countries, and the first on US soil in 34 years. Peter and Vai Yealands went along with our USA team.

Diversity between the vines

If you travel down Seaview Road at the moment, you may notice that every 10 rows have a different ground cover to the grasses which are usually seen. These rows have been sown with a combination of buckwheat, mustard, lupins and phacelia.

New Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine on Yealands Estate Vineyard

Earlier this month we celebrated the install of our new horizontal axis wind turbine on Yealands Estate. This is one of only 12 horizontal axis wind turbines in New Zealand and it only has one blade. This quiet and efficient turbine will help generate extra power for use in the winery.

Now we just sit back and let the wind do the work!

Yealands brings fine wine and kiwi cuisine to Berlin!

Last night Yealands Family Wines Chief Winemaker, Tamra, along with the European team hosted an evening of Yealands wine and 'kiwi cuisine' at the Berlin Sommelier School.  

Luckily they had a kiwi chef, as the menu included Vegemite, tomato, ham and cheese toast, fish and chips (wrapped in The NZ Herald!) and beautiful New Zealand lamb. All matched perfectly by Tamra to our Yealands Estate Range.
