The fact there are no vineyards in Finland means Finnish wine-maker Outi Jacovirta has to travel to ply her trade.

Outi's been making wine in New Zealand on and off for 16 years.

She works for others but also has her own label, buying in grapes to make just three barrels at a time.

The wine is then shipped to Finland to be sold.

Outi should now be back in Finland marketing her 900 bottles of wine but Covid-19 travel restrictions have kept her in New Zealand.

The wine made it safely home.
