2018 Vintage Updates – April

Finally! The best time of the year for grape growers has arrived

End of Vintage!

The harvest of the wine grape crop for 2018 in the Frankland River Wine Region will be completed by the 20th of April. It has been a terrific year with little rain and a fabulous cool end to the season. The Frankland River Wine Makers and Grape Growers Association would like to sincerely thank all of the Shire of Cranbrook Community for their consideration and help with keeping the smoke at bay during the past 10 weeks. We are very grateful for your understanding and efforts towards helping us to get the best quality fruit we can.

If you require any further information on the harvest or the industry in general, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the wineries in our region. So now we will head out and do our rain dancing, and cross our fingers for some really good starting rains for the cropping season.
