Grapevines thrive on Wairau Bar (NZ)

The Wairau Bar has been home to the MacDonald family for more than 800 years. The land at “the Bar” has been put to good use over many centuries, but more recently for growing crops, dairy or beef. Today a drive to the Bar provides ample evidence of the latest use of some of the land – orderly vineyards abound, but there are still cattle grazing in some paddocks and milking sheds are easily seen from the road.
