Hand Picking Harvest in February

HARVEST TIME AT EXCELSIOR!!The grapes are picked by hand on Excelsior Wine Farm. They do not use any insecticides and there are therefore loads of spiders and insects in the vineyards.

The tractor driver in the picture has invented a wire aerial to break the many cobwebs that he encounters when driving through the vineyards. This is the perfect way to prevent the cobwebs getting into his eyes.



No harvesting machinery is used to harvest the

grapes on Excelsior Wine Farm which prevents any damage to the ecology and ensures the employment of the farm workers.
