Dutch winegrowing is a pioneering business
and that’s what makes it a challenge, doesn’t it? I like a challenge! Of course, some people said we were crazy… “Who on earth would start a vineyard in
the Netherlands, it will never work!” Good wine grapes are only available
for two, three weeks a year… so I need to drink wine for the rest
of the year to remember that taste! Of course, officially it’s not allowed,
but I used to distill my own liquor… and I turned my hobby into my job, really. But we persevered. We chased our dream.
