This book features memorable portraits from a rich gallery of characters that Dick Scott has unearthed in his researches for this history of the New Zealand's wine industry.
All the skills of Europe have gone into establishing winemaking in this country: whatever the odds there has always been an heroic foreigner (sometimes a maverick Englishman) ready to strike vines in unlikely places and wrest a living from the sale of wine. Despite phylloxera and prohibitionists and timid politicians, a great industry has been built.
This book celebrates the final triumph for the first settlers' vision of good wine available for every family table. Entering a field hitherto unexplored it throws new ligt on the making of New Zealand
