Vineyards & Wineries

New Zealand wines have come a long way in the last 20 years and many world-class wineries and vineyards can be found in several distinct regions around New Zealand.

I have quite strong opinions on New Zealand wine having owned a specialist New Zealand wine shop in Amsterdam and having had experience with the industry. See this article for my view on New Zealand wine and those wineries I’ve included in Godzone.

For other wineries around New Zealand and general information on New Zealand wine, visit the official New Zealand Wine website.

New Zealand Wine

I'm a bit picky when it comes to choosing New Zealand vineyards for Godzone.

As a basic rule-of-thumb I show wineries that own their vineyards, have their own production facilities, and produce wines using traditional and/or organic techniques.

The map is the easiest way to find wineries by tapping icons. Scroll down for an alphabetical list.
