Winemaking killed the radio star

We just moved a ton of wine barrels onto the oxoline shelving. Full barrels are really, really heavy so we actually put empty barrels on the shelves and then pumped the wine from a full barrel in the middle of the room into an empty barrel on the shelf. This is a tedious and lengthy process, but it’s kind of cool to see it in action.

With that in mind, I tried to stay interesting in this video. Now, what’s going on is pretty simple.

  • Put an empty barrel on the shelf.
  • Fill it with a barrel from the ground.
  • Clean the barrel from the ground.
  • Put the newly empty barrel on the shelf.
  • Repeat for like three days of your life.

Because it’s so simple, I decided to make it an artsy fart music video. I put it to the tune of “A Tear” by Phunt Your Friends which is a collaborative effort between Drew McCarty and I. This also has lyrical contributions from Kate Keelen. The song was originally submitted to SongFight in April 2006.

  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
