We drove onto Witbourne
- Rodrigues Winery
our Harvest Host
This is a large winery, located in Whitbourne, as compared to the ones we have seen during our trip.
We had a personalised grand tour, in the evening from one owners, Leonel Rodrigues and Dwayne, this innovative process never seen or done before in Canada, and only one or two in USA. We watched part of this flaking process, which is hard to put into describe here. Amazing knowledge of and the use of water chemistry. Had some special wine tasting after dinner. No chemical additives at all, ALL organic products.
All the berries are hand picked and are locally available, they process the berries.
They have a large still from France, for the production of Vodka and Flavoured Brandies.
We also, did a short trip down to Cape St Mary's ecological reserve
. It is a protected area for the Gannets
, you have to hike about a kilometre to arrive where they nest. It is sad that they have to post signs up for a NO FLY ZONE for Drones. This area is just west of the Argentia Ferry Terminal. This is a nesting area for other species too.
We had lunch on our return at the Puffins Perch
