14 pickers took 9 hours to pick our last vineyard of 0.5 hectares at our Oisly vineyard. 2013 is an amazing vintage – 22nd October was our final day of picking , one of the latest on record! Look forward to intense aromatic profiles in the 2013 wines.
Compared to this, 10 years ago, in 2003, our first vintage in our new winery, picking started the beginning of August!
Levin Winemaker Francois joined David and Lynne Levin in London for the Tasting Event of the year – Virgin Wines London Tasting 2013. Taking time out from a very busy and very late vintage in the Loire Valley, Francois caught the Eurostar to London to entice eager Virgin Wines members with fabulous Levin Wines. David Levin, regaled tasters with stories of our humble beginnings some 30 years previous, and tales of the Levin Winery designed and built in Australia and shipped to the Loire. 2013 has seen Levin Wines win, not 1 but 2 Gold Medals in the World Sauvignon Competition, for the unwooded AND wooded Sauvignon – one of the only organic Sauvignons to do so!
