New Zealand in pictures: Gisborne

Among the leading lights of the Gisborne wine scene is Milton Vineyards, the first estate in New Zealand to be certified biodynamic, headed up by husband and wife duo Annie and James Milton. During a visit to their beautiful estate, James gave us a tour of his vines, asking us to “step on the roof of another kingdom”.

Representing for the next generation of Miltons was Annie and James’ son Sam, who is equally passionate about biodynamics and the potential of the wines from Gisborne, where Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and aromatic whites like Viognier have found a happy home.
