The Guru Has Landed

The Age of Aquarius. Again.

Every few months we receive a visit from our friend, mentor and adviser, the Esteemed Wine Guru, Larry McKenna.

Larry, the founder of Martinborough Vineyards and then Escarpment Wines, is one of the true greats of NZ wine, and in particular, Pinot Noir. He acts as a sounding board for us, and as our source of sage advice on all manner of things, and has been doing so since the earliest days of Two Paddocks. We value his wisdom on viticulture, wine making, business, Pinot, the Meaning of Life and more.

Among other things, we looked at our 11s (now in bottle) and 12s (in barrels), and were elated to find them "stellar."* The Prop ecstatic, and Larry nodding in benign approval. Top job from Dean, Phil and Co at COWCO. (*Quoting The Prop here.)

And Larry just as smiley when looking at our three vineyards, which in spite of the efforts of Jack Frost, are looking damn fine – well done Mike and Co. Good karma all round. As they say in mystical circles -- OM.

The guru Jacqui , Dean , Mike and Larry at The Last Chance Vineyard. Every day, in every way, we get a little better!
