New Zealand, a land like no other

New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people (informally known as Kiwis) it’s also gloriously uncrowded. It has a rich and fascinating history, reflecting the unique mix of Māori and European culture.

Lying in the south-west Pacific, New Zealand consists of two main islands - the North Island and the South Island.

You'll find a variety of awesome landscapes in New Zealand, all within easy reach of each other. Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches - it’s all there.

New Zealand Wine | Pure Discovery

New Zealand’s special combination of soil, climate and water, the innovative pioneering spirit and commitment to quality all come together to deliver unique and distinctive wine experiences.

Aotearoa (Māori for New Zealand) extends 1,600km (1000 miles) from sub-tropical Northland (36° S) to the world’s most southerly grape growing region Central Otago (46° S).

Vineyards benefit from the moderating effect of the maritime climate (no vineyard is more than 120km, or 80 miles, from the ocean) with long sunshine hours and nights cooled by sea breezes.

New Zealand produces less than 1% of the world’s wine, yet offers an impressive array of varieties and styles.
