He bought his 30 acres of land for $30 000, cleared all the trees and bush and created a gorgeous vineyard with fabulous wines.

... we tried the Pepper Berry and Lemon Myrtle ice cream : OMG!). We also bought some locally produced Cheddar cheeses (one piece with sun-dried tomatoes and one with chillies and chives).
