This #WineWednesday let’s look at another one of our Pillars of Sustainability – People. The success of #nzwine’s industry depends on the commitment and passion of the people behind it, through each step of the growing, production and sales and distribution chain. Throughout our #nzwine regions we see vineyards and wineries working with neighbours, local government and community groups on collaborative sustainable activities, and engaging staff in these efforts. Beyond this, it is our eagerness to expand the boundaries of sustainable thinking and behaviour that sets us apart. Many NZ wineries are focused on devising and developing new sustainability initiatives, as these efforts contribute towards reducing costs and wastage, and increase efficiency and positive environmental outcomes.

This #WineWednesday let’s take a closer look at another one of our unique #nzwine wine regions. Gisborne is a stunning wine region in the North Island and is famous for being the first city in the world to see the sun of the new day. As a wine region it is known for its mix of high sunshine and exciting range of wine styles. Vines were first planted in the 1850’s, and despite its size and secluded location, Gisborne is currently New Zealand’s fourth largest producer. Chardonnay is the dominant variety and enjoys great success, with bright and distinctive aromatics including Pinot Gris, Viognier and  Gewürztraminer coming in a close second. Gisborne is not only famous for its sunshine and wine, but also its beautiful coastline and secluded beaches. Sound like a piece of paradise? We think so!  Photo credit: #KirkpatrickEstate

Winter has arrived in New Zealand, and as the days get shorter and the temperature drops lower, a change is occurring within the #nzwine vineyards. During this time the vines go dormant, allowing them to endure the cold winter months. Sound familiar? A bit like us trying to survive the winter slump! They stop growing and rely on stored energy, and then once spring arrives they move into the next phase of growth and bud break. We think a great way to beat the winter blues is to enjoy good food with loved ones alongside a crackling fire. A glass of #nzwine in hand will help too of course… #WineWednesday

The annual technical event #GrapeDays 2018 has kicked off in the Bay! Today we are in #Napier providing overviews of #nzwine research, with a focus on fighting disease, innovating and the future. Guest speakers include Wayne Wilcox from @cornelluniversity in the USA, speaking to the #nzwine audience on powdery mildew - a disease with unique biology and control options. Next stop Marlborough and finishing up in Cromwell on Friday #nzwineontour
Celebrating those #FridayFeels with our #FavePhotoFriday #repost from @northcanterburywines - Looks like their local, family-owned businesses get really stuck into it out there! #nzwine

Our People Our Stories profile this month features Pernod Ricard’s 8th Responsib’ALL Day held on 7 June 2018, which saw 18,500 employees worldwide engage in over 100 local community projects, showing their commitment and contribution to society. In NZ over 400 @pernodricardnz employees rolled up their sleeves and helped out in restoration projects across regional NZ parks. A total of 9,000 native trees were planted throughout NZ to preserve our water ways. Water is of critical importance to the #nzwine industry for vine irrigation and winemaking activities, and by planting these native trees, they will act as a filter removing contaminants such as waste and plastics from local streams and oceans. Kevin Mapson, Managing Director for Pernod Ricard New Zealand said, “Responsib’ALL Day is our global initiative where all our teams have the opportunity to come together on the same day to support the environment and the communities in which we operate”. Think globally, act locally.  #nzwine #OurPeopleOurStories #ResponsibALLDay #prwinemakers
