Buy Waikato Wines Online
Waikato is situated in the south of Auckland. With small pockets of vineyard plantings scattered over the rolling farmland, this region is relatively smaller than other wine regions of New Zealand. This region enjoys a moderately warm climate as per New Zealand standards. The Waikato vineyards feature soils with heavy loams over clay subsoils. These soils support Chardonnay, Merlot and Gewurztraminer very well making them the typical grape varieties grown in the Waikato region. Waikato wine styles also focus on Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris varieties, with Sauvignon Blanc occupying the third place.
