We meet Rob Armstrong, a wine farmer in the Franschhoek Valley who reinvented the way his estate, Haut Espoir, produces wine to work in harmony with nature using the ancient methods of biodynamics. Rob has spent the last 16 years returning his piece of land to its former glory, working in harmony with nature and breathing new life into his wines.
