in a stunning place


You may have noticed that it’s a little quiet around here – actually that is hardly likely to improve over the next couple of weeks as we tour around the South Island of New Zealand.

Much as I would love to post some galleries of the magnificent scenery, I am too stupid to think of a way to get the images on my camera onto an iPad and from there onto these pages.

I’m not really here to spend all my time visiting wineries, but every few days, why not? Today just three wineries were visited, all in Marlborough, but between them they account for almost 60,000 tonnes (yes, really!) of grapes each year, 95% of which is white wine, and probably 95% of that Sauvignon Blanc!

Finished the day with fish and chips at the beach and swimming with a seal. Okay, to be truthful, not all of us swam with the seal – the water was too damn cold!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Hi Bill, hope you are having an absolutely fabulous time !
    If you’re around Marlborough do try to visit Mike Eaton at TerraVin in the Omaka valley. We drank one together last week at the Devonshire iirc 🙂
