The Octocopter h1>
Enter the Octocopter, an eight rotor camera drone. Operated by a two-person crew, pilot and camera operator, the Octocopter is capable of lifting cinema quality digital video cameras and staying aloft for up to 20 minutes, reaching altitudes up to 1100 feet above the ground.
Cinematographer Gérard Angé, used this super cool high tech toy to capture unique aerial views of our vineyards, harvest operations and winery. Gérard stitched these shots together with time-lapse footage of our property to create a riveting short video montage.
So, where is the video you ask? Ah, we are saving that. This week Sir Peter will be presenting five of our wines in a special sit-down seminar for 1000 people at the New York Wine Experience. Gérard’s video will serve as the closing to Sir Peter’s presentation. We are keeping it under wraps until them. Check back, we will be posting it soon…
