There is something special about New Zealand winegrowers, possibly the stunning environment they live in, ideology in winemaking and respect for the environment. In 2016, 98% of New Zealand’s vineyard producing area was certified with the “Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand” scheme. This is a great system and not only protects the environment, but looks after the local communities.
Having worked out in the New Zealand vineyards when I was younger, this has always been a special place for us. Pre mortgage with surfboard in tow, weekdays were spent in the vineyard, whilst weekends were spent on the beach cooking over BBQ’s and drinking great wines.
