A Hot Summers Day, New Zealand – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day…” A life without ambition is like a journey without a destination”.
” A problem is just a solution waiting to happen.”
Central Otago, New Zealand, for today’s photo, and a typical hot, dry summer day. Central Otago is a big wine-growing region, with most of the vineyards at around 300m altitude and surrounded by mountains. Pinot Noir is the main wine from this area, characterised by the smaller grapes that are used to make this type of wine (one reason why a good Pinot Noir costs more). Wine making in this region took off in the 1990s, whereas in the 1800s, it was gold that was the big industry here. In summer, temperatures here can reach 35 degrees, but in winter, parts of Central Otago fall to -15 degrees.
