How not to drive on Chard Road
Posted by Rob on 23 August 2013
Those of you who have ventured down the road to our Winery and Tasting room will be aware that it is not a road to trifle with. We had a van loaded with foreigners the other day, who, at high speed, failed to negotiate the bluff corner, lost control in the gravel, hit the bank and rolled. Nobody was badly hurt but the consequences of a loss of control in the other direction doesn’t bear thinking about – an almost sheer 100 metre drop into the Kawarau River. We noticed a few pinch marks in the middle of the drivers seat though!
