2.31pm, Monday 21st March, Yalumba Clocktower, Angaston, Eden Valley
Hi Folks – Ferrari here – I’m back at work and the proud owner of a brand new right knee. That’s why I’ve been away for 6 weeks – but thanks to the weather it doesn’t look like I’ve missed much as far as vintage is concerned! It’s been a very sobering time with all the disaster news dominating the TV, and you can’t help but feel lucky to be able to go local Barossa for a bit and just catch up with what Vintage 2011 is doing. I’ll be the one trundling around the winery tomorrow morning annoying the winemakers to see where things are at with the grapes – and I’ll be back on the air from now on.
And don’t forget … it’s only another 5 weeks until the Barossa Vintage Festival! And only days until the new Australian Rules Football season starts. Go the Saints! Red, white and black forever!
