Description

Published in association with the successful Mitchell Beazley Pocket Guides series, this new edition of the acclaimed wine guide first published in 1997 tells the story of the development of wine in New Zealand and gives a detailed account of more than 250 wineries. The introductory section contains a history of wine in New Zealand from the first planting of vineyards by James Busby in 1836 to the present thriving export market, along with overviews of climate, soils, grape varieties, wine making techniques, laws and labelling requirements, and vintage charts. An additional 70 wineries are included in the new edition, testament to the phenomenal expansion of the industry. Both the small boutique wineries and the established international names are here, grouped by region. The profile of each winery discusses its backgrounds and its wine-making policy, and includes star ratings of key wines.
