With a slightly shorter than usual harvest our winery jobs have come to an end. While thankful for the experience it left me feeling a little incomplete, but maybe it is supposed to, after all someone will have to look after the grapes next year.
Big cheers to our great group of co-workers representing Chile, France, Spain, Australia, Canada, the States, of course, and hometown Gisborne. Early on one of our co-workers renamed Steve. Just call him Jack.
Our jobs ended on a high note. Instead of the typical boozy end of season staff party our employers provided helicopter rides. Everyone seemed to get a kick out of cruising over Gisborne’s always picturesque hills and beaches.
