Canterbury is an increasingly important fine wine region located on South Island’s eastern seaboard, albeit accounting for only four percent of total plantings in New Zealand – yet nine percent of wineries. Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and, increasingly, Pinot Gris are the varieties to watch, the Mountford Estate producing one of New Zealand's leading Pinot Noirs from its base in the Waipara Valley.
