Vinography Images: The Forgotten Land of Vines

Most wine lovers are familiar with the more famous wine regions of New Zealand. Indeed, such regions are populated by dozens or even hundreds of producers giving drinkers ample opportunity to sample the region’s wares. But there is one tiny wine region in New Zealand that is basically being kept alive by a single producer (down from a count of 2 since 2022). The Gisborne region, north of Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island is a forgotten viticultural center. Other forms of agriculture gradually squeezed out most grapes. But James Millton of Millton Vineyards, a pioneer of biodynamics, continues to produce epic wines from the region, from vineyards such as the one shown above in all its summer glory.
