Mike Wolfenden | Born in Scotland to English parents. He studied oenology at Lincoln University in New Zealand, gaining a Masters in Applied Science. He researched the effectiveness of creating vineyard mulches comprised of both glass and mussel shells. ‘Recycling glass in New Zealand is problemetic,’ he told me ‘because the only smelter for this is located in Auckland on the North Island. The glass did reflect light, with white glass reflecting more than green glass because the latter absorbed the red light [green absorbs red], dimming everything down.’ He works for Felton Road. His partner is Olivia Ross.
