Let's have a bit of pandemic boredom fun.
I have just put into 200ml jars (100 of ..phew!) my sweet quince and chilli sauce.
Help me name it. Then I can print labels.
Some heads up.. The jars I purchased via Ebay have a brand on the lid ..Frutta del prato
which I can't remove unless I make round lid labels to cover.
The sauce is both sweet and sour. Its got huge flavour, very textured and zippy, a touch acidic (but as with wine this will mellow) and has a lingering afterburner.
My wine brand is Roenfeldt Hill, but doesn't seem to fit.
My tours main title is Be consumed tours.
Over to you. Any suggestions? I will post a jar to the successful contributor.
I find gardening very therapeutic. My big vineyard garden means year round hard work, but my modest garden at home helps keep me sane.
Today I planted 100 flowers in preparation for spring bloom. Then I planted a variety of vegetables in a plot of really nice soil I had been preparing for months. The recent fabulous rain, combined with the still warm soil of autumn, will ensure all get off to a great start.
Broccoli, garden peas, silver beet, carrots, garlic, and red beet/beetroot.
I can't wait to make a red beet and shiraz relish.. another addition to treats for our tour guests lunches!
My home photo studio today, ready to shoot at mid day when there is lots of natural light and minimal shadows.
Wow! I had no idea how quickly our denuded of native flora hilltop would recover, since fencing it and keeping the sheep out.
There are peppermint box eucalypts popping up everywhere, rushes and wattyls. Bonus has been a couple of bush tomato and a lot of mushrooms.
The evolution of our wine label.
Celebrating 10 years of commercial winemaking next year.
The first label was produced and printed by me at home in 2009 when I made just one barrel of fabulous Grenache.
We went commercial in 2011.
Our first gold medal for ZSGM in 2013 for 2011 wine, a very difficult vintage due to summer rainstorms.
Now selling internationally, but still very boutique and very rare wines.
Sorry folks, we don't have any for sale prior to 2015. A small amount of the 2015 wines will be drawn from our museum stock soon, and available for sale. Watch this space.
