Proprietor Busy

For followers of Two Paddocks it may come as a surprise that the Proprietor has another career. As an actor, of all things.

As such, it always comes as a relief to both staff and management when the Proprietor is called away on thespian duties. An unnatural calm descends on the vineyards as, undisturbed, we get on with the happy business of making the world’s leading Pinot. (Or so we like to think.)

So it is with some satisfaction that we can report that S.N. has been unusually busy of late. He is currently reprising the role of “Merlin”, with Miranda Richardson, in Vancouver for the Hallmark Channel, after finishing “The Triangle” in South Africa. Having just recovered from the considerable shock at seeing the Proprietor play air-guitar in Sally Potter’s film “Yes”, we are naturally anxious as to what to expect from this new slew of work.

Speaking of output, we hear the BBC's To the Ends of the Earth has been screened to some acclaim over the summer. We can only assume this is due to the distinguished work of Benedict Cumberbatch, Cheryl Campbell, Victoria Hamilton, Jared Harris, Charles Dance, et al, rather than that of the Proprietor. Who it seems, is playing himself in the (William Golding written) trilogy, i.e. foul-tempered old curmudgeon, with obnoxious politics, crap taste in hats, etc.
