Wind the clock back 20 years and Pinot Noir was barely known, leave alone grown, in New Zealand. But today there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the variety, and on 18 August, you can do just that.
Intense, expressive, and fruit-driven, the Pinot Noir grape has found a home in New Zealand, and this International Pinot Noir Day is the perfect time to celebrate this notoriously fickle grape.
New Zealand is home to more than 240 cellar doors with over 530 winery experiences, and even though it may be cold outside, if you think we are going to give up our beloved vino, think again.
In celebration of International Pinot Noir Day on 18 August, we’re taking a journey around New Zealand wine regions where this fickle grape thrives. Check out these quick regional videos from Wairarapa, Marlborough, Nelson, North Canterbury, and Central Otago.
