Bay of Plenty
The Bay of Plenty region south east of Auckland represents a small but established vineyard planting that occupies scattered pockets of land amidst rolling farmland.
Wine production is focused mainly on Chardonnay with Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc occupying second and third place. The region enjoys a moderately warm climate and fertile soils by New Zealand standards, while still having a coastal influence.
