I made it!
I have arrived in Bannockburn at last. After a long 12 hour flight followed by a two hour lay over, and another two hour flight, I was greeted by my host Richard Guthrey, who has shown me what true New Zealand style hospitality is all about. Some errands along the way to what I thought was home, turned into a half days work at one of the vineyards in Gibston. Netting, netting, and more netting for the birds. Or rather for anti-birds. Today we netted again 9-5 with lunch and tea time breaks. It's very Brittish over here.
The scenery is stunning. Surrounded by green and yellow as we come into autumn and the foliage will begin to redden and it will become even more beautiful. Ill post some pictures soon, but for now I have limited internet time. Tomorrow is the local food and wine festival in Gibston, at which I will be assisting Richard in pouring his wine-a reisling, a white blend, and two seperate vineyard pinot noirs. However, I'm sure I will also be enjoying myself and tasting other local wine and food. For now adieu, perhaps tomorrow I will post some photos.
