Change of Course...

Three Months!


For now, my time in the wine industry is to be put on hold. A return to coffee; I will be barista-ing at the Cardrona Ski Resort on the South Island in Wanaka!

I have left the Celtic Winery from which I gained knowledge about the simplicity of winemaking. I realize that really anyone can make wine organically if you have the time, fruit or grapes, and creative mind to make it happen. I also gained an extended kiwi family to whom I owe many thanks for the hospitality, great conversation, and crazy documentaries we shared.

Currently, I am on the ferry once again headed down to the South Island. I am leaving Wellington from where I have just spent the past few days crafting up a storm and boogie-ing down with my good friend Maren. Now it's adventure time again and I will be travelling down the West Coast to see yet more beauty of New Zealand.

I start work June 19th and the season lasts until October 2nd. I will have a permanent address for a few months where you can send me letters! Although I will be leaving the WWOOFing scheme for a while, I am very excited to be laying down some roots in Wanaka and looking forward to working on the mountain!
