It has happened a few times now since I have owned La Margarita. We get a call from a TV producer who is doing a documentary on traditional rural gaucho life in Argentina asking us if it would be ok to do some filming on the estancia - we are always delighted to oblige. For me it’s an honor that they choose to come and film on La Margarita as a choice for a typical rural estancia. It happened again a few weeks ago. We got a call from Cecilio Ceballos an Argentine TV producer. He said that they were filming a two part documentary on life in and around Tapalque and would be it be possible to film on La Margarita. Our answer was an obvious yes. Last week Cecilio came and did lots of filming on La Margarita, showing life on a typical estancia. It featured Lalo working with the horses and Raquel cooking homemade bread and media lunas etc. I got interviewed for around four minutes giving me a chance to explain what we do on La Margarita. Goodness knows what the Argentines make of my London/ Spanish accent but for me it’s always a pleasure to be able to talk about La Margarita on TV especially in Argentina
Twice last week the programme was shown on national TV – the estancia looked great even if I do say so myself and Lalo and Raquel are once again wearing dark glasses due to their new found fame!
When we get a copy of the DVD we will put it in YouTube for you to see.
