CANTERBURY

Canterbury has two major wine producing areas. Around Christchurch is an area known as the plains, and an hour further north is Waipara. Although there is a record of grape production going back to the 1850s, the first commercial plantings were in the late 1970s.

The whole region benefits from long, dry summers with plentiful sunshine and little rain, Wairapa can acheive higher temperatures as it is sheltered from the tempering effect of the sea by a range of low hills. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir account for about 60% of the plantings and with Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling amongst others...
