Embracing the Season: Pruning Time at Montara Wines and Our New Farmers Market

At Montara Wines, each season brings its own unique rhythm and responsibilities, and winter is no exception. As the chill of the season settles over the Grampians, our team prepares for one of the most crucial tasks in the vineyard: pruning. This year, we're also thrilled to announce the launch of our very own Farmers Market, creating a perfect synergy of community and agriculture at Montara Winery.


The Art and Science of Pruning:

Pruning is much more than a winter chore; it's an essential practice that sets the stage for the quality and quantity of the next harvest. By carefully cutting back the vines, we manage growth, encourage fruit production, and ensure the health of our vineyard. Our skilled viticulturists approach pruning with a blend of tradition and modern techniques. They consider factors such as the vine's age, the specific varietal, and the desired grape yield. Each cut is made with precision, fostering an optimal environment for the vines to flourish come spring. 


Why Pruning Matters:

Pruning has a direct impact on the vineyard's output and the wine's quality. By controlling the number of buds on each vine, we can influence the amount of fruit produced. Fewer buds mean fewer grapes, but those grapes will be of higher quality, with more concentrated flavors. This meticulous attention to detail is what helps us produce wines that truly reflect the character of the Grampians. 


Introducing the Montara Winery Farmers Market:

In addition to our pruning activities, we're excited to introduce a new venture that brings us closer to our community: the Montara Winery Farmers Market. Set against the picturesque backdrop of our vineyard, the market will feature an array of local produce, artisanal goods, and, of course, our exquisite wines.


What to Expect:

The Farmers Market will be held every month, offering visitors a chance to experience the best of the region. From fresh fruits and vegetables to handmade crafts and gourmet foods, there will be something for everyone. It's a fantastic opportunity to support local farmers and artisans, all while enjoying the serene ambiance of Montara Winery.


A Celebration of Local Flavours:

At Montara Wines, we believe in celebrating the richness of our local community. The Farmers Market is our way of sharing this celebration with you. Stroll through the market stalls, savor the diverse flavors of the Grampians, and take in the stunning views of our vineyard. Whether you're a local resident or a visitor, we invite you to join us in this new venture.
