MacGyver: The Original Organic Wine Action Hero


He can disarm a missile with a paperclip and make a robot out of duct tape, but did you know 80\’s TV hero MacGyver was also a defender of organic winemaking?

In the Season 6 episode Bitter Harvest, MacGyver defends farm workers against the evil and illegal pesticides being sprayed on their grapes. Pretty forward-looking attitude for an episode first aired in 1990. Apparently, in the outtakes, he also defended biodynamic wine practices, but fretted about \”natural wine\” becoming an overused, meaningless term.

It\’s available on Netflix, if you\’re feeling nostalgic. Credit for finding it goes to the Sleuth Network MacGyver Marathon and my missing remote control on a holiday weekend morning.
