The New Zealand wine industry has grown immensely over the past several decades. The hard work and determination in winemakers across the island has been rewarded in both quality and quantity. In honor of the Kiwi spirit, Cellars Wine Club produced an extensive article on the history and influence of New Zealand wine. Read it here.
The article begins with efforts as early as 1830. Readers learn about James Busby’s love for viticulture, as well as plantings by Roman Catholic missionaries in the south. Each piece of the region’s history is explained in a fascinating, story-like manner, echoing the enthusiasm that local winemakers poured into their work year after year.
The blog post describes the massive wine growth in the 1960’s -- primarily due to the young generation returning from Europe with culinary and viticultural inspiration. “New Zealand,” Cellars Wine Club explains, “already used to handling large volumes of liquid foodstuffs due to their thriving dairy industry, was quite capable of handling the slowly growing amounts of wine produced by these fledgling viticulturists.”
Now, in 2014, it’s clear that the hard work and determination of New Zealanders has paid off. Critics agree, the New Zealand wine industry is quickly becoming a valuable addition to the international wine community.
