Editorial: Raise a glass to success of Bay wineries
For the Hawke’s Bay wine industry, 2015 was a good year. In fact the industry has had a few good years, indeed great years, of late. The 2013 and 2014 vintages were superb and hopefully, without putting the mockers on it, the current upcoming vintage is lining up to be another little red and white cracker. Last year the exports of wine from New Zealand hit a record high of $15 billion, with the industry looking at trends and predicting that by 2020 it will likely hit the $2 billion mark.
