The view from our office
While most vineyards are beautiful places to work, we spent the last few days in a particularly incredible spot perched above the Awatere Valley and the Inland Kaikoura mountain range.
Better yet, the work was paid hourly, so we actually had a chance to slack off and enjoy the view!
So happy for you guys, incredible spot. Vt vines just starting to ripen-birds soon

hey Bob! i’ll try to convince the migrant workforce to follow us back to VT next spring. we have a tough time keeping up with some of these guys, and i figure they could wrap and tie all of boyden valley in a day. ive been thinking of the vines back home of course…hope the harvest is a good one.

how long before the hiking bug hits? . . . this valley makes even me want to go for a really long walk! A. Di

we head for the mountains in about a week. we’ve done some exploring in the hills nearby, but generally just want to relax on our days off!

Sounds like a great way to earn some cash! Sure beats the orange groves, I bet. Are the grapes pleasantly edible? Like the grocery style grapes? silly questions perhaps

wine grapes are generally juicier and much more flavorful, but alas its not harvest season. we’re pruning and training the vines right now in prep for summer!
