Get tipsy with Graham Norton: TV host turns Kiwi winemaker

Known to enjoy his wines, a hilarious video has emerged of chat show host Graham Norton concocting his own mixture of South Island wines.

Mr Norton, who is a shareholder in Invivo Wines, flew samples over to London, where a team spent three hours mixing, blending and sampling various types of their wines before Mr Norton found something he liked.

Mr Norton visited New Zealand last year where he helped produce wine at the vineyard.

The light-hearted video shows the trio sampling a considerable amount of wine, with Mr Norton even joking "you've had enough" when chief winemaker Rob Cameron spills a few drops.

New defamation claims land Conservative Party back in court

The Conservative Party saga continues as defamation proceedings launch against Colin Craig today in the Auckland High Court.

The claim was made by Jordan Williams, head lobbyist of the Taxpayers Union, relating to a Dirty Politics brochure distributed at Mr Craig’s media conference last month.

Conservative officers Nathaniel Heslop, Kevin Stitt and Angela Storr are also included in the defamation claim.

Mr Craig released a booklet at his July 29 media conference saying the three men were “against” him.

The brochures were also delivered to mail boxes around the country, but Mr Williams says they contained “disturbing material”.

“I have made it extremely clear to Mr Craig that I have not made up any allegations or fabricated material, nor conspired to do the same with Slater and Stringer,” Mr Williams said.

“Though this is not a course I take lightly, I am confident in my position and look forward to due process in Court.”

Mr Williams' claim seeks damages of $600,000 for the brochures and $300 000 in damages for Mr Craig’s media conference comments.

At his media conference last month, Mr Craig claimed he had been the subject of a "serious and deliberate" smear campaign by Mr Williams, John Stringer and Cameron Slater.

"It does not serve this country well to have a group of people who influence public opinion through a web of deceit and media manipulation" Mr Craig said.
