Foley Family Wines, which operates brands including Vavasour and Martinborough Vineyard has more than quadrupled full-year profit to $6.5 million after a bumper harvest.

Sales in New Zealand fell by 14 per cent to 101,000 cases, a performance it described as “disappointing”. Sales in Australia were flat, while North American sales rose 15 per cent to 131,000 cases.
