Just been taking a peep at some of the harvest films at www.winefilms.co.za. Seems like lots of wineries are now taking the opportunity to use films on their blogs or websites to try to explain what goes on during this crucial period. It's a good idea, but most attempts so far have either been a bit boring or badly shot.
The two at winefilms that have caught my eye are the interviews with Bruce Jack of Flagstone, and a rather philosophical piece by Adi Badenhorst at Rustenberg (pictured). 'Wine is just a drink, and it's more hyped up than any other beverage in the world', begins Adi. But then he begins his own hype. 'You can put something creative into it; something of your own life experience. We have all been shaped by different life experiences: hardships, happiness, whatever.'
