With a history of being a European Pagan ceremonial ritual of burning the old vine canes that have recently been pruned.  Burning of the Canes is a celebration of the rebirth of our vines as the buds start to come back to life.  On August the 6th we will be celebrating a successful 2022 harvest whilst welcoming the new season of our 2023 vintage with the hopes that it will be another bountiful and top quality harvest.
