The vineyard dog – Russell

Russell the vineyard dogAll vineyards need a dog and Haythornthwaite Wines is no exception!

Meet Russell - the vineyard dog who chases every car and bicycle tyre he can find. Russell is a Jack Russell belonging to Glenn Smith our Vineyard Manager.

Russell has proved to be one of the best rabbiter’s we have, and regularly chases rabbits and birds in the nets.

RIP.  Russell’s propensity for chasing tyres in the end proved to be his undoing.  While chasing the tyres of a ute driven too fast on the vineyard headlands, it bounced sideways and killed Russell outright.  We miss Russell’s friendship and personality terribly.  RIP
