We grow three varieties of grapes at Faulls Ridge Wine; Verdelho (white), Chambourcin (red) and Shiraz (red). Pruned in winter the grapes ripen over summer and are picked in January and February every year. Depending on the season, with these three varieties we usually make a Verdelho, Chambourcin, Shiraz and a Rose.
