- Wine Regions of Focus
- Major Wine Producing Regions
- Other Specialties
In New Zealand our focuses are Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. The latter is 40% of the acreage planted in New Zealand, but about 80% of imports to the US. Marlborough is the region of New Zealand that produces the best, most well-known Sauvignon Blanc. New Zealand is also becoming well known for its Pinot Noirs, which more like Burgundy than California. We love it as an up and coming region with great prices, and unique wines with characteristics that best represent the varietals and regions.

New Zealand Wine Resources
For those of you who have the chance to tour New Zealand, Classic New Zealand Wine Trail is a fantastic resource. It has day-by-day intineraries and lists of things to do on each day for people with varied interests. Great photos of the area as well!
New Zealand Wine Growers is "joint initiative of the New Zealand Grape Growers Council, representing the interests of New Zealand’s independent grapegrowers, and the Wine Institute of New Zealand, representing New Zealand wineries." The site has educational materials about New Zealand's wine industry, wineries and regions, recent news, and calendars of events, including events in the United States in Boston, DC and New York.
Wikipedia's entry on New Zealand wines also has a great overview of the country's wine.
