Viticulture in New Zealand is a relatively recent practice, dating back less than 200 years to the period of English colonization by Captain James Cook.
The first vine at Kerikeri on the North Island dates from this period.
It wasn't until the late 1980s that New Zealand wines rose to international prominence.
As in most of the world's territories, the nineteenth century was characterised by powdery mildew and phylloxera, which drove the New Zealanders to breed Franco-American hybrids (Baco Noie and Uva Isabella) that are notoriously disease-resistant.
The history between New Zealand and wine was also troubled for cultural reasons.
Only in the 1960 the wineries were legally allowed to sell their wine to hotels and restaurants.
The first vineyard of European vines is located in Marlborough, implanted in 1973.
Today in New Zealand, cult wines are produced from the following grapes Sauvignon e Chardonnay.
