SATURDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 2020
TIME: 18:00 - 18:30
We are officially OVER-EXCITED about our very, very special guests for this headlining session at Wine Festival Online.
First up we had an EXCLUSIVE interview with none other than Mr Sam Neill - actor, winemaker, superhero.
Some say Sam is famous from things like Jurassic Park, Hunt for Red October, The Piano and Peaky Blinders - but in our world the reason he's famous is his notably refined and hugely satisfying Two Paddocks wines from Central Otago in New Zealand. He owns four vineyards in Central, farms organically, focuses on just two varieties (Pinot Noir and Riesling), and keeps a veritable menagerie of animals, from sheep to cows, pigs, ducks (many of whom are named after high-profile friends like Graham Norton, Helena Bonham-Carter and Imogen Poots). This is one NOT TO BE MISSED so do check it out.
On the day we also did an Instagram Live with International Emmy nominated TV chef and cookery writer, and surely one of the loveliest people alive, Ching He Huang MBE.
We know Ching from way back in filming days and we'll be discussing her delicious recipes and the best wines to match, plus her latest book Asian Green. (Our mutual friend and noted wine connoisseur Ken Hom may get a mention too!) You can catch up with this chat on Susie and Peter's instagram account in the IGTV section.
