Today K, Z and I had some of the best fun we have ever had! We were invited to join Tess and Z at at Moreson Wine Farm, in the magnificent Franschoek Valley, for the blessing of the harvest which happens once a year.
We made wine the old fashioned way! We hand picked the grapes and then pressed them using the oldest tools in the business - our feet! Grape juice making is a fun but tiring job! It was a day long affair including a delectable lunch at Bread & Wine Restaurant.
The views were magnificent and the weather just perfect!
Picking grapes is not as easy as one thinks! It requires some strength to cut them from the vines.
The pressing was loads of fun. Two or three people to a wine barrel, music pumped up and the timer set - one minute to tramp the grapes !
The next minute was spent emptying as many buckets of juice as possible into a larger container. The winning teams won cases of wine.
