VIGNERONS and grape growers have swung into harvest – with early reports of a bumper crop and outstanding vintage. The first batch of what will be more than 650 tonnes of grapes to be processed by Michelini Wines arrived at their Myrtleford plant last Thursday. Two truckloads, 16 tonnes each of chardonnay grapes, were delivered after being harvested in the dark in the early hours of the morning.
