March is that lovely month on the cusp between summer and autumn.
The month is a continuation of Bunuru, one of the six seasons of the South West as signified by the local Wadandi people. The weather is still glorious but the crowds of summer have gone, and if you ask many a local it’s their favourite time of year. Long, hot days and short nights make it especially perfect for spending time by the coast surfing, sunbathing, or fishing. A second summer, it offers a slow and easy transition towards autumn.
In other exciting news, vintage is underway in the region. It marks the busiest time of year for the vibrant local wine community. Off to a slightly later start than usual due to the cool weather at the beginning of summer, the good news is that it seems the wait was well worth it. With exceptional fruit flavour and ripeness across all varieties, we are in for what appears to be a great harvest to come.
