O’REILLY’S CANUNGRA VALLEY VINEYARDS
852 Lamington National Park Rd, Canungra In February, O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards swung open its barn gates in the wee hours to 150 eager grape pickers. In total 1.145 tonne of verdelho and 1.042 tonne of semillon grapes were carefully hand-picked into buckets, in preparation for crushing and turning into wine for consumption across the globe. Unfortunately, due to flocks of lorikeets and severe wet weather, much of the ripe red grape crop was damaged in the deluge. The second grape harvest was cancelled and supplementary red grapes were sourced from third-generation Peter O’Reilly’s family vineyard in Stanthorpe.
