No matter where you look in Nelson/Marlborough, row after row of vines march steadfastly across the Wairau Plains and up into the surrounding hills and valleys.
In the space of four short decades, this region has become one of the world’s leading wine producers. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, in particular, are highly sought-after thanks to the long hot days, cool nights, and unique soil varieties.
Marlborough now produces over 70 per cent of New Zealand’s wine and is home to more than 100 different wineries/labels spread over 23,000ha.
