Have you met Maude?

Posted on November 27, 2012 by Nikki

She is our new Miniature Dachshund and we are all completely smitten.

Maude – who is presently the size of a large rat – spends her days adventuring. Given half a chance she’s out patrolling the farm with Lucy and the King of Môreson, our other Miniature Dachshund, Snoop-la-Poop. Lucy has already taught her how to:

  • dig holes in the garden
  • chase Hadedas off the lawn
  • tackle tennis balls at full pace.

We’re having to keep a close eye on this one, she’s got trouble written all over that cute face. Yeah,[gallery link="file" columns="2"]

she is naughty with a capital N.

Miss Molly and her Family

Posted on January 17, 2012 by Nikki

Miss Molly is not - as some might believe - an only child. She is in fact part of a family of six other dogs. She's a very good sister and has a lot of time for her siblings (both older and younger).

We thought we'd share some of our favourite pictures of Miss Molly's family with you. They're all huge characters and somewhat responsible for Molly growing into the star she is.

Snoop - The Poop - Friedman

He is the Head Honcho. Don't be fooled by his size or charismatic grin, he's a tiger. Grrr.

Snoopy also likes to play dress up. Some of his favourite outfits include: Mountain Explorer (pictured below), Bride, Dancing Queen (with painted nails) and Dog Recovering from an Accident.

Sally - The Legend - Friedman

Sally has been a Friedman for 16 years. She's swum more swimming pool lengths than most labradors, surfed bigger waves than most men and chased many a visitor off the farm.

Sally is getting on in years and now enjoys: a leisurely breakfast in bed. and pre-cleaning the contents of a full dishwasher.

Koemba Friedman

Koemba is huge but he honestly believes that he is the size of a sausage dog. He is terrified of only one thing ... the cat, Tinkerbell.

Fudge - The Budgie - Friedman

If you've spent any time at Môreson you've probably met Fudge - The Budgie - Friedman. He's our Mr Social, a regular fixture at Bread & Wine and around the wine tasting.

He loves long romantic rides in the car, attention and making sure he is as wet as possible before he climbs onto any kind of furniture.

Lucy - The Goose - Friedman

Lucy - The Goose - Friedman is the latest Addition to Miss Molly's family. She's already a firm favourite who loves to terrorise empty coke bottles (the plastic kind), wrappers and stuffed animals.

This week she discovered her big dog bark and is now practicing on anything that moves, including Miss Molly. It's all terribly exciting!

As you can see Miss Molly's family is packed full of interesting characters. They're often two bottles short of a box but they keep her life, and our lives, very interesting.

P.S. Not pictured but just as important: Tom - The Tank - Friedman.

Diamonds are a Winemaker's Best Friend

Posted on September 29, 2011 by Nikki

We heard late yesterday that we'd been awarded not one but two Diamond Awards at The 2011 Winemaker's Choice Awards.

Our 2010 Môreson Pinotage and our 2008 Môreson Cabernet Franc walked off with top honours. We are so incredibly proud of these wines! If you're attending our inaugral Plant Fayre this weekend you'll be able to taste both of them in our Tasting Room.

Bastille Festival 2011

Posted on July 18, 2011 by Nikki

We've got a whole lot of pictures from the 2011 Bastille Festival. If you'd like to check them out you'll find them on our Facebook page.

They're super-fantastic ... probably because they include a guillotine, our winemaker in an incredible moustache and JP in an unforgettable goatee.

Back from outer space

Posted on February 21, 2011 by Nikki

Our 2011 harvest is almost complete which means less silence on the blog front. Yeeha!

For those not involved in their own harvest, 2011 has been one of the most interesting harvest-years to date. The weather, which varied from ridiculously hot days weeks to freak storms, has provided the Môreson team with an interesting set of harvest circumstances.

This year, more than any other, has really highlighted the nature of this thing we call wine and how it doesn't ever act in isolation; how it is part of, and affected by, so much more than just what happens in the cellar. It really is, from a farm's perspective, what makes this business so exciting and dynamic.
