Vineyard register gives lay of land
The New Zealand Wine Growers vineyard register 2015-18 arrived in Mark Henderson’s inbox recently. While he’s neither a statistician nor a mathematician, he enjoyed having a burrow into the facts and figures within as it gives a real ‘state of the play’ of our local industry. The plantings of all varieties are mapped out by region, and ranked nationally for both the current and previous year, with forecasts for the two years ahead. You can see where things stand, and spot any developing trends.
