New Zealand. Naturally. Trade and Media Tasting
New Zealand leads the wine world with regard to its certified sustainability program (Sustainable Wine Growing New Zealand, https://www.nzwine.com/en/sustainability/) with 98% of all production certified as such under what may very well be the world’s most demanding and comprehensive program. Sustainability is an essential part of the New Zealand culture and a means to allow future generations to enjoy the riches of this clean green land.
