New Zealand

Wine making and vine growing go back to colonial times in New Zealand. The oldest vineyard dates to 1851, established by the Roman Catholic Church on land in Hawke's Bay. Dalmatian immigrants arriving in New Zealand at the end of the 19th century brought with them viticultural knowledge and planted vineyards in West and North Auckland. Typically, their vineyards produced sherry and port for the palates of New Zealanders of the time, and table wine for their own community. Wine has steadily grown in popularity in New Zealand.
