Photographer's Note

White netting helps protect grapevines from bird attacks in New Zealand's Marlborough region.

New Zealand's wine industry began in Marlborough in the late 1970s and today this region represents 62% of the total vineyard area in the country. The main grape variety grown here is Sauvignon Blanc, closely followed by Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The strong contrast between hot sunny days and cool nights help vintners extend the ripening period of their vines like nowhere else. The area is widely considered by many critics to produce the world's best Sauvignon Blanc.

In a workshop I will post a wider view of this vineyard on old terraces of the Awatere river.
