Quoting Amber: "..so here is the saga behind this little one if you’re interested...
taras would remove the head of a seasoned vosges barrique and fill it with bunches of our gorgeous blewitt springs grenache (planted 1947) he’d put the head back on and pop it in the back of the shed- then the morning of international grenache day (186 days later) he would pull it out and press it through a vintage pillow case- at this point taras always found it hard not to eat all the skins and drink all the surrounding liquid .....this was the reason there was always so few bottles produced"
