The Te Mata grape picking team pausing for lunch and a photo in New Zealand.

Te Mata

Our journey had got to a stage where we flagging a bit just from the sheer amount of motor home driving. We were struggling to find the Te Mata vineyard we had been given directions for and were almost at the point of giving up when we got on the right single track road. It was such good fortune as the grape picking here was totally unique. It was done by a team of around 50 retirees with most of them being over 65 yrs old. We had seen nothing like this anywhere else. We did an interview with the vineyard manager and his oldest grape picker who just happened to be his Dad.
