What is a Micro-Winery?
We are very small – hence the “micro” – it’s along the lines of a micro-brewery. A “small” winery is considered to be one that produced less than 50,000 cases per year. For our first commercial vintage release (2003), production was a mere 250 cases. And we are now up to a whopping 1000 cases annually!
