Happy New Year…

Posted by Kerri on January 9 2017 in: Churinga Vineyard: Peglidis Vineyard: Riesling: Specials & New Release Wines: Stockists: Viticulture: Wine Education

Happy New Year everyone... if, like me, you've returned to work today resembling a Christmas ham, then you may have been a little slower on your feet than usual.. I've enjoyed a fun filled, lovely festive season with my family where we've opened some lovely bottles and shared some great meals and I'm now really excited to get back in to the winery and prepare for the new harvest...
Clare Valley has experienced higher than average rain fall over the growing period and so I'm looking forward to watching my two dry grown, old vineyards (who've not enjoyed this amount of rain in decades) progress through the season and produce some specatacular fruit. Fingers crossed the remainder of the season is successful for everyone.
Thanks to everyone who has shown interest in my cellar door opening times and please note I'll be back open for the Easter weekend and further opening dates will be posted in due course. But please remember for those of you keen to taste the wines before Easter and would like to make an appointment please contact me kt@winesbykt.com

See you soon.. Cheers, KT

Merry Christmas everyone…

What a year it's been folks... a record harvest, ten year anniversary celebrations, a new home and the opening of my new cellar door... thanks so much to you all for coming along to events, dropping in to see me during the course of the year, visiting cellar door and for tasting and supporting Wines by KT in general... I'm truly blessed to have such great people as part of my wine life and I've really enjoyed the opportunity to meet some of you along the way. Thanks everyone for helping make it happen...

A huge note of thanks for my family - my partner Tim and daughter Willa who make it all so worthwhile and to my parents Coralie and Gary who both help me out no end whether it be babysitting or deliveries. I'm so grateful to you all...

Cellar door will be closed now until Easter 2017 (although if you would like to make an appointment to see me I'm happy to do so)... please call me 0419855500 or email me kt@winesbykt.com to confirm a tasting.

Wishing everyone a very safe and happy Christmas... and may 2017 bring you peace and joy.

Cheers, KT x
