New Zealand Winegrowers release Vineyard Register Report

New Zealand Winegrowers (NZW) has released the 2012 Vineyard Register Report today, which presents the most accurate statistics in the last decade on the sector’s vineyard productive capacity. The report includes data from 1,841 vineyards with a combined producing area of 34,269 hectares in 2012, which is anticipated to increase 683 ha in 2015.

The Vineyard Register is an initiative from the New Zealand Winegrowers Strategic Review, and replaces the previous Vineyard Survey which was conducted annually. "The 2011 PricewaterhouseCoopers Strategic Review emphasised the importance of accurate data as a prerequisite for understanding future production capability, infrastructure planning, biosecurity management, disaster response purposes, and pest and disease management. The Vineyard Register now provides this vital information and is a significant step forward for the industry" says Philip Manson, General Manager Sustainability at New Zealand Winegrowers.

Results from the Register show that Marlborough continues to be the dominant producing region home to 66% of the total national vineyard. Hawke's Bay is the second largest producing region, but for the first time Otago edges ahead of Gisborne, as the third largest producing region by area.

The significant plantings in Marlborough are reflected in the varietal mix with Sauvignon Blanc comprising 58% of the national vineyard. Pinot Noir is firmly established as New Zealand's second most planted variety at 15%. Despite a small decrease in Chardonnay plantings it remains the third most planted variety at 9% with Pinot Gris being the fourth at 7%.

Going forward the Vineyard Register data will be continually maintained with the results released annually.

The Vineyard Register is an online database holding information on New Zealand's vineyard producing area such as vineyard owner, location, and planted varietal mix.

The New Zealand Winegrowers 2012 Vineyard Register Report can be accessed via www.nzwine.com under Info Centre > Statistics > Vineyard Register
