The star of “Transformers”, Josh Duhamel is now part of the cast of “Unsolved: The Murders of Shakur” and “The Notorious B.I.G.”. Recently separated from singer Fergie (The Black Eyed Peas), the handsome hunk has learned a lot about wine, particularly from his ex-partner...
Fergie's father has always been passionate about the Earth. At first, it was in his garden. He grew apples, citrus fruits, peaches, guavas, peppers and artichokes, to name a few. When he retired, he decided to get into wine. That's how the excellent Fergalicious and Axl Jack emerged. What I like about the story is the time this guy spent getting the best from Earth. Nothing happened with a snap of the fingers. It was the result of painstaking work, sacrifices, disillusionment sometimes. But at the end of the day, when you give it your all and never take the easy way out, you are rewarded a hundredfold. I have always had boundless admiration for people who follow their dreams through to the end.
The world of wine is demanding and unforgiving. It depends on many factors that you cannot always control. Like the weather for example. You have to have extraordinary determination not to throw in the towel!
