Though the New Zealand wine industry really began only fifty years ago, vines and winemakers have now spread across the land – from Central Otago to Kumeu, Waipara to Wairarapa – to produce notable wines to global acclaim. For half a century, geographer and wine enthusiast Warren Moran has followed the development of the industry, talking to the winemakers and tasting the wines. In this book, he provides an unrivalled introduction to New Zealand wine: the climate, soils, andgeography the winemakers work with; the grape varieties they have tried to tame; and the extraordinary personalities, families and companies who have made the wine and the industry internationally recognized.

Illustrated with three-dimensional maps of regions and localities and spectacular photographs of the vineyards, the wines, and the winemakers,New Zealand Wine: The Land, the Vines, the People is a must for all of those interested in understanding the extraordinary wines of New Zealand.

WARREN MORAN is a geographer and professor emeritus at the University of Auckland. Moran has published extensively on wine in New Zealand and overseas. He has been named a distinguished geographer by the New Zealand Geographical Society.

"New Zealand Wine will take you on a journey from Auckland to Hawkes Bay, Marlborough to Central Otago, and explores the winemakers, and their stunning wines that are scattered throughout." - Australian Gourmet Traveller

"Finally, the book that needed to be written about New Zealand wine, by the person best-qualified to write it. As New Zealand wines attain increasing international recognition at the premium quality level we need a scholarly reference detailing how this became possible. This book will be the basic reference for all who comment on New Zealand wine, and reflects the author's lifetime of commitment and academic rigour in regard to this exciting industry." - John Buck, Te Mata Estate Winery

"This is a beautifully written book, giving you a sense of place and of the tremendous drive and passion of the pioneers. Warren Moran has fully engaged himself in the deeper notions of the land, the people, the role of vines and wine, and the links to the old world." - Rudi Bauer, Quartz Reef Wines
