Renishaw Hall vineyard to host age-old grape treading in bid to produce region’s first ever ‘natural’ wine

Saturday 20th October, 9.30am

Renishaw Hall vineyard is hosting a grape –treading morning to harvest the last of this year’s bumper crop of fruit and turn it in to a special type of wine.

A first for the region, volunteers will be macerating grapes by squashing the fruit with their bare feet; a traditional process which has taken place across wine countries for over a thousand years.

People from the local area will be within the walled grounds of Renishaw Hall’s historic vineyard to pick the last of the grapes, before removing their shoes and socks and treading the fruit in large buckets.

The juice generated will go on to produce a natural method sparkling wine, known as ‘Pet Nat’ – Pétillant Naturel.
