Spring has arrived in New Zealand

Being in the Southern Hemisphere, New Zealand experiences opposite seasons to the USA. Our Spring has just arrived – and with it the threat of spring frosts for New Zealand vineyards.

The first main varietal to produce buds is Chardonnay, which will burst into growth in mid-September.  It’s an exciting time to visit a vineyard.
