Favorite Terra Sancta Wine:
Slapjack Pinot Noir. The history of this wine unfolds as it is consumed.
Favorite wine memory:
My two vintages in Oregon. Good times, good wine, good beer, good food and great people.
Best secret of Bannockburn:
Near the Terra vineyard, on the banks of the Kawarau River, there still lies a massive gold deposit. Its 30 paces north of row 17. Then 25 more paces north - west. Head past the tree with the twisted branch and turn left at the old sluicing gun. Jump the fence past all the tailings and make a sharp left turn once you reach the biggest rabbit burrow in the area. Walk another 13 paces and there before you lies, well, paradise.
Favorite time of year:
Spring- so that I can ski in the morning before golf in the afternoon
Japan for the skiin
