Slow Food "Picking Party"

As the first event of Slow Food Marlborough, 40 people joined the Seresin team on Saturday morning to hand-pick part of the Rachel block of Pinot Noir at our Home Vineyard, almost the last of our blocks harvested for 2008. After hand-picking about half-a-tonne of Pinot Noir, the group destemmed berries by hand (see above) and then plunged the caps of some of the batches of Pinot Noir already fermenting in the barrel hall. We all tasted fresh, unfermented Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling juice before being treated to a morning tea prepared by Marcia Chang-Hong (see below).

Seresin Estate is pleased to support the principles of Slow Food and to support the activities of Slow Food Marlborough.
