Actor, writer, director and vineyard proprietor Sam Neill will take part in a live tasting with fine wine retailer Langton’s this Thursday.
“This should be fun,” the actor said. “We will be talking about wines, life and anything else that tickles our fancy. In particular, our Two Paddocks wines which are rare, hard to find and seldom short of sublime.”
The New Zealand-born actor owns Two Paddocks, a certified organic vineyard in Central Otago, which produces highly acclaimed, single-vineyard wines with a focus on Pinot Noir – a variety that the region is world-famous for.
The tasting is taking place on Langton’s Youtube channel, and is a live recording in which people joining can ask questions in real-time.
“I’ve met Sam on the wine circuit before, and I’m looking forward to having a relaxed, engaging and educational chat with him – not without some antics, I’m sure,” said Master of Wine Ned Goodwin, host of the tasting.
The actor describes himself as being in the ‘cheering up business’ and has been entertaining social media followers during isolation with everything from reading poems for his garden gnome to playing his ukulele.
