Down on the farm
Romeo Bragato got it dead right in 1895!
As part of the research for our Central Otago presentation at the Pinot 2013 conf in Wellington, we came across this little gem in the Otago Daily Times from 1895.
This is the actual quote from the visiting Australian Government Viticulture research scientist Romeo Bragato, who was commissioned by the NZ Government to investigate areas suitable for grape growing. We salute you Romeo and Jean-Desiree Feraud
