Meet the Winemaker (Episode 25): John Forrest, Forrest Winery

John Forrest of Forrest Winery of Marlborough, New Zealand tells Debra why he is called Dr Riesling around the winery, how he made a total life change into winemaking mid-career, and how winemaking enabled him to return home. He shares with Debra how he was told he was too artistic to ever be a great scientist, but how he found his fate in the mix of farming and science. John also has red wine focused brand called Cornerstone located in the famed Gimblett Gravels terroir, but how he sought out this particular soil in order to grow Cabernet, and why this marginal climate produces such great wine.
