Preserving Home Turf – A Very Special Part of the World

Travel has many upsides and, when you travel as much as I do, the homecoming often delivers just as much delight and inspiration as the destination just visited.

I love the fresh context that travel gives. Whilst working in the northern hemisphere this year, McLaren Vale was in the news as the battle between urban sprawl and wine-growing played out.

The wines are familiar to many people, but it’s the unique combination of wine, food, history, culture, beaches and laid back quality of life that draw me back each and every year.

For those that haven’t visited, I shot a little movie to show you the place and some of the people that make it really special. Take a look around at what’s on offer and spare a thought to think just how unique and significant it all is, in a global context, and make sure you tell your friends. Enjoy!
