Eight months to Mars - John Buck
Our guest today knows about dry conditions because he grows grapes in Hawkes Bay. He has many of the attributes that would get you to Mars - including ambition and a drive for success. John Buck bought a rundown vineyard and quickly built it into one of the world's best wineries. His Te Mata wines are internationally award-winning, and his contribution to the Hawkes Bay economy earned him a New Zealand Order of Merit last year.
