Big vineyards need big tractors and big utes! Have you ever seen so much great Shiraz in the same place at the same time?, all under the expert and laconic care of Mark Paley. Thanks to Mark and his crew; he picked grapes for just about the first time in his life because it was the morning after Chinese New Year and there were a few no-shows!! He makes a pretty good grapepicker but could improve on estimating the number of kilos in the bin! But we’re very happy with that little bit extra.
