Enjoy September's budburst with a vineyard picnic

September in Australian vineyards welcomes budburst, a significant event marking the awakening of grapevines after winter. Tender buds emerge from dormant canes, infusing the air with renewal and anticipation. This moment signifies the beginning of the grape growing cycle, as each vineyard undergoes its own transformation, creating a captivating array of emerging leaves. Budburst not only marks the start of a new season but also hints at a promising harvest and the potential for exceptional wines ahead.

During this dynamic period, vineyard teams meticulously care for delicate buds, shielding them from frost and pests while nurturing their growth. The sight of these young leaves unfurling under sunlight reflects nature's resilience and the expertise of vintners who guide vines towards fruition. September's budburst bridges the connection between nature's rhythms and the intricate craft of winemaking, a journey that transforms these early signs of life into the exquisite wines that will grace our glasses in time to come.

Why not see budburst for yourself on one of our fabulous Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia picnic experiences!
