Every year, WineWorks holds a Sweepstake for guessing the number of tons harvested in the coming vintage. National tonnage for Vintage 2017 has just been released, and as expected, the total is significantly lower than the last few years at 396,000 tons.

The prize this year is a pair of crisp $50 notes, which are now being ironed for Renee at Forrest Estate in Marlborough, and Shankar in WineWorks Auckland warehouse. May they spend it wisely!

Next year we are opening up the sweepstake to everyone in the industry, so you will have another opportunity to guess, and may you guess better next year!
