Availability: In stock

Whether planning a visit to a local winery or organising a region-wide wine tour this book introduces wine enthusiasts, and those wanting to find out more about great New Zealand wines, to many of the best vineyards in the country. All the main wine-making regions are described, with wineries chosen not only for the quality of the wine produced, but also for their history, cellar-door atmosphere, awards won and the impact the winery has had at home and abroad. Author Douglas Renall has walked the vineyards, searched the cellars and talked with winemakers and vineyard managers to gather fascinating insights about the viticulture methods employed, the oenology practices used and the people who work long days in the vineyard and equally long nights in the cellar. Often visiting wineries several times, and always with his camera, he has also captured the beauty and seasonal differences of vineyards around the country.
