Change of Pace

BBC series on ex-pat Brits profiles Jake Barnett, a London banker turned Christchurch viticulture student. Barnett has nothing but praise for the NZ wine industry, not to mention his adopted homeland. “The nearest we get to noise pollution is when all the lawnmowers start to drone gently on a Saturday morning […] With the Southern Alps an hours’ drive away and some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world just up the coast, it looks pretty promising to me.”
