Buy Gisborne Wines Online
New Zealand's Gisborne is a land of high sunshine and verdant landscapes. It is the first place to see the sunrise in New Zealand and the first landfall of Captain Cook. The region with such fascinating history is a home to award-winning wine producers, entrepreneurial growers, and boutique wineries. Long dry summers and spring rainfalls, combined with both heavier clay and alluvial soils, allow farming of a sheer diversity of grape varieties. The dominant grape variety of Gisborne is Chardonnay followed by Pinot Gris. Some new varieties like Arneis, Verdelho and Albarino are also doing great in the region. One of the remotest areas of New Zealand, Gisborne produces full-flavoured and fruit-driven, to critically acclaimed biodynamic classic wines. Ormond, Patutahi and Manutuke are the official subregions of Gisborne.
