100 Vineyard Stories: Cellar worker hated Father's winemaking



"When I was growing up, my father made wine. He used anything that would ferment, grass, any kind of fruit, vegetables, squash, anything he could think of. 

"It was awful. I hated the stuff. Completely turned me off to wine.

"Then I happened to go to a big wine festival down in Wellington. That was my first real wine. I loved it.

"Yeeah, now I've been here Craggy Range through a couple of winemakers. Taught them everything I know."
