Planting at Colehurst Vineyard began in 2007. Originally purchased as land to produce market garden fruit and vegetables for the coffee shops. Half of the site is a south facing slope with free draining sand and gravel soils and so we decided to gamble on growing vines. We have planted 12 grape varieties, 6 Red and 6 White. The 4500 vines planted cover one and a half hectares and we harvested and vinified our first vintage in 2009.
