Clarke characterized the west coast of the South Island (not North Canterbury) as one of the wettest places on the planet and the Central Otago region as being shielded from rain by the Southern Alps (not Apennines). Greywacke Winery is owned by winemaker Kevin Judd (not Mike Weesing); Weesomg spoke about the wine during the presentation. Crafting Roca Patrón, a new line of tequilas based exclusively on the tahona process, is the task of the production team at the Hacienda de Patrón distillery in Atotonilco, Jalisco, Mexico: (left to right) David Rodriguez, Francisco Alcaraz, Antonio Rodriguez and Ismael Solís.
