Down on the farm
"Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate 25yrs of Chard Farm wine" from Rob, his Mum Jean, Dad Des and wife Gerdi. "It was lovely to see so many colleagues, locals and of course our family, mark this occasion with us."
Look how far one bunch of grapes has come - celebrating 25 years of Chard Wine Friday, 20 and Saturday, 21st Feb, 2015
featuring our very own John Wallace. Thanks to Queenstown NZ for putting together this brief video of this year's celebrations.
As part of the Central Otago Pinot Celebration, we had a visit from UK wine writer Tim Atkin MW. He was intrigued by the number of people having photos taken with Lola our resident grape vine sculptured bikie girl.
In jest we mentioned it was traditional for wine writers to get their kit off and pose alongside Lola, with a bottle in the appropriate location. To our shock and surprise he took us at our word ! .
