So this is actually a bit of a repeat performance for Winemaker Ruud Maasdam (of Staete Landt, Marlborough, New Zealand) here on Good Food Revolution. The last time we caught up with him was outside of an enormous Pinot Noir tasting in Wellington, New Zealand, and for a number of reasons our interview was cut off rather prematurely.

Ruud was just recently in Toronto for Lifford’s Fête de Pinot Noir and so we sat him down and hit him with all of the questions that we had been meaning to do some six months previously!

Edinburgh-born/Toronto-based Sommelier, consultant, writer, judge and educator Jamie Drummond is the Director of  Programs/Editor of Good Food Revolution… and spending time with Ruud made him think of travelling back to NZ.
