"Since 2016, Alex Craighead has been working in near total isolation on New Zealand's South Island to create a tradition of his own, with 5 hectares planted to a cold, North-facing slope in Upper Moutere. The coast of Nelson, New Zealand, where Alex is based, looks more like Vancouver or Patagonia than Europe: windswept, wild and sparsely populated, a country of fishermen and shepherds."
