New Zealand

New Zealand: A see­mingly end­less, untouch­ed and deser­ted natu­re, no neigh­bors far and wide and more sheep than peo­p­le. New Zealand is not even as big as Italy, but pas­ses through three extre­me­ly dif­fe­rent cli­ma­te zones.
Unique like the natu­re are the wines. These enchant with pure, clear and imme­dia­te­ly pre­sent fla­vors. 2200 hours of suns­hi­ne, cool nights and a long ripe­ning peri­od pro­vi­de the uni­que fla­vors. A ran­ge of soils and cli­ma­tes allow for a varie­ty of wines.
