    Default Must be mad!!

    Hey all;

    Ok, been here in Napier 4 1/2 years.
    Stick with me on this post...

    As a sparks, I do a lot of work at top Hawke's Bay wineries.
    In Dec 2010 I spotted niche market.. Traditionally made Grappa.
    So I imported an alembic bane marie still from Portugal....
    and distilled fermented Marc and made Grappa. The distillation process has been a huge learning curve, and I love it!
    (and now perfected it).
    The Grappa has worked out so well that I have wine makers interested.

    I have just registered a company to do this properly (so customs can skim off their bit off my ass!)

    Am I mad ???

    Nick.
