Our three days of filming the TV pilot for off the beaten wine track took place at the start of the busiest week ever in SA wine. Day one was the last day of the Nederburg Auction and the twist in that tale is that Nederburg, 18th century herrenhuis, Vivaldi on the harpsichord and stinkwood armoires in the voorkamer, is one of the most revolutionary cellars in SA.
Finished the voice-overs for the TV pilot off the beaten wine track our Roald Dahl treatment of SA wine. Still scratching all those insect bites from Johan Reyneke’s vineyards – that’s the problem with a biodynamic philosophy, its the biomass that’s being maximized, stupid.
In the meantime, my intro to the series gives a taste of what we are about.
