As you may have known, our region’s been in drought for the past two years.

Today, I wanted to share two very different images taken at the same location in our property.

Two years ago vs today

The top image was taken today in 2017 and the bottom image was snapped today – 2019.

We are so at the mercy of Mother Nature and these images show what a diverse landscape water can make not only to beautiful sceneries but also to the realities of farming. The lake is not only a valuable asset from a dining alfresco point of view, but also the life-blood for our vines.

Our fingers are crossed for substantial rain before Vintage 2020.
