These conditions combine to produce wines of distinctive purity, vibrancy and intensity with a fine balance between flavour and intensity.

The snow-capped peaks and clear water rivers provide a spectacular backdrop to the vineyards – with around 700 wineries scattered across the rolling hills.

New Zealand is made up of two large islands and a multitude of isolated islets in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, thousands of kilometers southeast of Australia. This state is the most southern wine producing country in the world.
The oceanic influence is particularly intense on these islands, giving them a cool maritime climate. The most temperate places are on the North Island. The country enjoys a diversity of climates and soils. The mountain ranges protect the country from the powerful winds of the western Tasman Sea, explaining the location of most vineyards on the eastern part of the islands. At the junction of two tectonic plates, the country is full of volcanic soils.
New Zealand wine holidays can be arranged in some of the most important wine regions of the North Island are Hawkes Bay on the east coast, Martinborough in Wairarapa Province to the south and Waiheke Island near Auckland.
