The annual wine grape harvest is expected to be delayed at Great Lakes Winery at Wootton following the heavy rain. Vigneron Steve Attkins said picking would be pushed back two to three weeks after nearly 200 millimetres of rain fell on the vineyard. "We had the highest level we've probably seen in 16 years so four of our paddocks went under; one of them went under completely [and] we've never seen that before," Mr Attkins said.
