Vintage is a tremendous watch. New Zealand’s vineyards have rarely looked more alluring….”

Oz Clarke MBE

Speaking about the documentary, author and wine expert Oz Clarke MBE, said: “Vintage is a tremendous watch. New Zealand’s vineyards have rarely looked more alluring. The winery processes seem challenging and intriguing and are explained in an easy, lucid style, and the bunch of local Kiwis and foreign drop-ins the director has assembled to talk us through the 40 days from picking the first grape to closing down the final vat, are an engaging crew who tell us really interesting, personal stuff. The photographic direction is exciting, unpredictable and electric.”

Vintage by Villa Maria is also available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime.
