Quick Lesson
(Fresh facts to pique your interest)

New Zealand has a relatively short wine-making history. It’s a cooler wine area compared to its neighbor Australia and is broken into two large islands. The North Island consists of the wine growing regions of Auckland, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and Martinborough. The South Island has Marlborough, Caterbury and Central Otago. New Zealand is most famous for its Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region but recently (within the past 5 or 6 years) has gained attention for their Pinot Noirs. New Zealand has captured the distinct classic flavor characteristics known to this complex grape.
