Whistling Kite Biodynamic Wines is thrilled to present an amazing opportunity to become directly involved in the winemaking process to its customers. At the end of the viticulture experience, participants will be able to take away the wine they created to sip and savour from the comfort of their own home. Aptly named, the ‘Make Your Own Magic’ experience will give participants a hands-on understanding of the winemaking process, from picking the grapes right through to consuming the wine.

This experience spans three weekends, with each weekend focusing on a particular point of the viticulture process. The first weekend guests will pick and crush the grapes, crushing the freshly picked fruit straight into the fermenter. The following weekend will see you load the grapes into the basket press and press the wine-in-the-making before transferring it to French barriques – this is a fun and physical process that allows you to truly enjoy the fruits of your labour at the end of the experience. The final weekend is held in late spring/early summer where guests reconvene to bottle and label the wine. Each paying participant will leave with a dozen bottles of finished wine to take home and savour in the months to come.

Though the full experience spans three weekends, guests are welcome to participate in as many or as few as they would like to, and of course, are always welcome to stop by the cellar door during the maturation process to try the wine as it ages in the barrel.
