Nederburg Photo Shoot 8th March 2012
Thursday, April 05, 2012 5:46:42 PM
Another photo shoot, this time at Nederburg in the Wine lands of Paarl, in the Western Cape
This was to celebrate a retired Cellar Master, Günter Brözel who had worked for Nederburg for about 30 years, to be used to accompany a press release on a new wine. The images to be distributed to wine journalists, who could elect to use the picture in their wine columns. And distributed to newspapers, magazines and digital journalists
The story line was that Günter had ridden around the estate in the 1950s on a BSA 250cc motorbike
The day was to be wine tasting, lunch at about 12 mid day, then the photo shoot, all of which June and I were to be part of, at the Nederburg Manor House, that sounds simple
On the day we set of with the BSA on the trailer
On arrival, it was decided I should hide the bike as Günter had not arrived, he had been told that he was coming for a lunch with the current Cellar Master, Razvan Macici, so I moved it around to the side of the Manor House
The bike parked in the shade by a hedge row of Rhododendrons
As indicated there was some wine tasting especially by the Nederburg people, which included the CEO, PR consultants and of course the old and current Cellar Masters, the wine flowed and before we knew it mid day had well past, a trip to the bike and then more wine.

Eventually at about 2 pm we sat for lunch, there was 11 of us, initially I envisaged a large party for lunch. Well I am glad there was not, as Günter had us all enthralled with his stories and whit, what a lovely congenial way to spend a couple of hours, in stunning surroundings
Well after more pictures on and around the bike it was time to leave, what a wrench to leave such company and place, but as they say all good things must come to an end!
