What Makes New Zealand Wine and Cheese Special

New Zealand ranked 16th in global wine production in 2018. The country boasts more than 2,000 vineyards, stretching 1,600 kilometres from subtropical Northland to frosty Central Otago, which between them produce a diverse range of wines.

New Zealand’s climate lends itself well to the production of great cheese. The Waikato, the epicentre of the NZ dairy industry, has grass that is greener than just about anywhere else in the country. It is a cheese-lover’s paradise and many of the best-established cheese-makers in NZ are there.
