At Anderson Winery we hand pick all of our grapes. This is much more expensive than machine harvesting (8-10 fold), but it means the berries are not broken, and the juice does not come in contact with air, skins, stalks and leaves while they are being picked.

Stalks and leaf petioles can give a bitter taste to the resulting wine, and if white juice has more than fleeting contact with broken grape skins it starts picking up tannin and phenolics which make the wine drying and bitter (or if the winemaker subsequently removes this, flavour is also stripped out).

Hand harvesting helps the grapes to reach their full potential.
