Julian's January 2018 Newsletter

Happy New Year Fellow Vondelingers! I hope 2018 turns out to be a cracking year.

Julian's October Newsletter

Greetings from Vondeling October has been rather a challenging month. All the vineyards are going bonkers and exploding with life and the chardonnay is flowering already. Everything looking good at this stage although the Shiraz has got off to a bit of an uneven start. Poor old Felix, one of our Aberdeen Angus bulls, twisted his knee ligaments “on the job”and the vet said he would have to be “off games” for the rest of the season, so that rather…
