Major change this week. We are sad to report that Richard (plus Sherree and family) leave this week – Richard to bigger things at Neudorf Wines in the Nelson district – colleagues well respected by all at Two Paddocks. Richard will be head viticulturist there under the august leadership of Tim Finn (the other Tim Finn). We congratulate Richard on this prestigious appointment and wish all the Flatman family all the best in the future. We will miss them. Neudorf is by our estimate, six times the size of our little concern, and its wines often just as good! Plus like us, they are fair and even handed to short people. Goodbye Richard.
On a brighter note, Mike Wing is stepping up to the plate as our vineyard manager. Mike has been with us for four years now and knows our vineyards like the back of his capable hands, and has energy and commitment to burn. We are all excited about a new era with Mike at the helm, with his staff and management behind him like Caesar’s legions. (all four of us).
In addition to this Mark is moving upwards to a more managerial role, and could probably call himself General Manager of Two Paddocks if we went in for honorifics. Whatever; Mark and Mike now blaze the way forward, even in these straitened times to prosperity and progress and most importantly a great wine year and many more to come. Onward, upward! Possibly even Sideways.
