Every year, WineWorks holds a Sweepstake for guessing the number of tons harvested in the coming vintage. Last year, Vintage 19, we harvested 413,000 tons, however this year the total has rocketed 11% to 457,000 tons !
Spot on with this entry in the sweepstake was Nigel Avery, of Booster’s Sileni winery, and he will be presented with a crisp shiny $50 note!. Click here to see what everybody guessed, and where you are in the sweepstake …

It’s interesting to note that even though the harvest is up, our exports are almost exactly the same volume. It was an extraordinary vintage in most regions, despite the fact that Covid made it also the most difficult in living memory.
