Summary Once the darling of the wine industry, talented winemaker Andrew Garrett and his family have now been forsaken by the industry that once celebrated them. Starting their amazingly successful business on a $3000 loan, Averil and Andrew Garrett worked their dream hard with innovative marketing and production and their label became a national and international bestseller. But their high life and rollercoaster ride came to a full stop when fire devastated the historic winery they had hoped to make the headquarters of their empire. Financially strapped with commitment to expansion plans, they were forced to take on a Japanese multinational as a majority partner, but it was the beginning of the end of Andrew Garrett. Unable and unwilling to toe the corporate line, Averil and Andrew walked away from their company and bought a magnificent property in the Adelaide Hills, planning it to be the centre of a vineyard, winery and tourist centre. But planning laws intervened, so Andrew invested heavily in vineyards and again fate turned against them. A desperate struggle to hang on to their home ended in 2004 when they were evicted. They were declared bankrupt. But worse was to come. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Series Producer: Laurie Critchley; Directed by Jane Manning for Screen Australia in association with ABC.
