What he's up to
When he's not in the winery, he likes to pretend he's Bear Grylls sneak in a couple of hours to go fly-fishing for trout. On the weekend, it's a mix of all the best stuff kayaking, golf, free-diving or scuba diving to catch lobster, crayfish, scallops and oyster. He's also pretty good at making his own home brew beer from scratch!
