Cover image Tapa, a bark cloth hand-made throughout the South Pacific, features distinctive patterns such as those pictured. Just like a vineyard, the creation of tapa requires passion and craft, and the finished product is popular both for everyday use and for royalty. New Zealand wine, too, garners recognition and praise at every level.

“For a small country with a relatively young wine industry (at least on the international level), New Zealand really has made a name for themselves over recent years. The wines retain an air of mystery that is somewhat unique in this ever-shrinking modern world of ours.” Gregory Dal Piaz, Snooth.com

New Zealand is one of the world’s youngest nations. Maori created its traditional cultural expression, and just as Maori artists today are reinterpreting ancient craftworks — such as kahu (cloaks, typically of feather, pictured) in new forms and materials — so our grape growers and winemakers are innovating in the vineyard and winery.

What does “sustainable” mean for New Zealand wine? For us, sustainability means delivering excellent wine to consumers in a way that enables the natural environment, and the businesses and communities involved, to thrive. Under our Sustainability Policy, wine must be made from 100% certified grapes in fully certified winemaking facilities, and certification must be through an independently audited programme. Central to our sustainability policies is a

PILLARS OF SUSTAINABILITY

Biodiversity

Without the wealth we’re able to harvest from animals, plants and microorganisms, humans couldn’t survive. New Zealand wine producers cultivate and nurture diversity in the vineyard.

Soil, Water, Air

Blessed with an array of distinctive soils, abundant fresh water and famously clear air,  our wine producers go to great lengths to take care of these treasures. Even though New Zealand draws most of its

ENERGY

electricity from renewable sources, the energy demands of wine production sees the industry employing reduction strategies in all activities.

CHEMICALS

The world expects a certain quality from New Zealand wine; to maintain standards we need to mitigate against disease and pests. Chemical use on the vineyard, however, is the last resort.

BYPRODUCTS

Reduce, reuse and recycle are the watchwords in New Zealand vineyards and wineries. Many byproducts are routinely diverted from the waste stream and turned to beneficial use.

PEOPLE

A sustainable wine industry is for the benefit of people, and its success depends on delivery by people. New Zealand wine producers take their community responsibilities seriously.

BUSINESS

Sustainable practices enable wine producers to add value in a number of meaningful ways, while also making long-term cost savings and are therefore critical to the legacy of our wine industry.

Soil, Water, Air: Soil Central Otago

For a winery with vineyards on flash flood-prone slopes, soil health is vital. To sustain their fragile soils they’re increasing organic matter by allowing maximum sward growth before mowing; judiciously applying compostenriched bio-char, and balancing soil nutrient levels to preserve the low fertility that gives essential character to their wines.

commitment to keep improving, as new research is undertaken and new technologies are developed. We have an ongoing leadership role in industry research and development projects and, as a result, we’re helping to raise the global bar for sustainability. Seven “pillars” represent our key areas of focus, and we provide guidance and support around each to our members.

Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand is integral to the ongoing success of New Zealand wine. Members are committed to protecting the unique places that make our famous wines by reducing the use of chemicals, energy, water and packaging, and by reusing and recycling materials and waste.

Energy Auckland

One large wine operation finds energy efficiencies offer significant savings, so the winery employs heat recovery systems to store waste heat from refrigeration for use in winemaking. Night air cooling, and daytime illumination by natural light are two other successful initiatives.

Chemicals Gisborne

Each year, local ladybird populations boom in response to the numbers of the damaging pest mealy bug. “It takes some fortitude not to jump in and spray,” says one viticulturist, “but we endeavor to use no insecticides.” Planting cover crops to encourage ladybirds and other predators has significantly reduced use of chemical controls.

Biodiversity: Wetlands Marlborough

Rich in indigenous biodiversity, wetlands have high conservation value. One winery began restoring 50 hectares of wetland in 2004 and has since planted over 3000 native plants — with the help of staff and local communities. Along with positive ecological outcomes, the project has yielded wide-ranging business benefits. #nzwine I Calgary 2014

PREMIUM, SUSTAINABLE, DIVERSE As an isolated, cool-climate island nation, New Zealand enjoys an undeniable advantage when it comes to producing distinctive, ultra high quality wines. No place is more than 130km, or 80 miles, inland and the proximity of our vineyards to the ocean has a pronounced effect on the character of our wines. Mild, sunny summers and marked differences between day and night time temperatures in many regions slow the ripening of the grapes and allow them to develop pure,

intense varietal flavours. This is the foundation of New Zealand wines’ elegance and power, and helps explain their famed balance, structure and food friendliness. And with growing regions extending 1,600km (1,000 miles) — from latitude 36° in the subtropical north to latitude 46° in the mountainous south (the most southerly vineyards in the world) — regional diversity is dramatic, enabling a striking array of wine varieties and styles to flourish.

Astrolabe Wines When winemaker Simon Waghorn decided to create his own brand, he chose the name “Astrolabe” because of the historic ties with Marlborough and the connotations of exploration and discovery. All Simon’s skill and experience are combined to capture the essence of Marlborough in wines of purity, focus and elegance. Of special interest to Simon are the unique qualities of sub regionality as expressed in the Valleys wines, and how the sub regions can combine as Marlborough classics in the Province wines.

Neal Ibbotson combines his extensive viticultural expertise plus Marlborough’s mix of climate and soils with the talent of one of New Zealand’s leading winemaking teams, led by Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark.

EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL & AVOCADO OIL

@TheVillagePress thevillagepress.co.nz Hawke’s Bay on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand is a beautiful region of famous vineyards, fruit-filled orchards and rich agricultural land. Its mild Mediterranean climate and productive soils make it a food and wine lovers’ paradise with the latest taste sensations coming from the region’s flourishing olive groves. Wherever quality grapes and wine are produced, olives will do just as well. Hawke’s Bay has the sunshine hours, rainfall (with irrigation, as required) and soil profiles to be New Zealand’s premier olive growing region. The Village Press olive grove is sited in the golden wine triangle of Hawke’s Bay (seven kilometres from Hastings adjacent to major wine company vineyards) and is managed by people fully involved in the olive industry.
