Keith Stewart here focuses on 15 New Zealand wineries, setting out to capture the essence of their individual approach to making good wine. The wineries covered are: Kumeu River, Goldwater Estate, Millton, Ngatarawa, Stonecroft, Te Mata, Dry River, Martinborough, Ata Rangi, Neudorf, Cloudy Bay, Seresin, Vavasour, Pegasus Bay and Felton Road. Stewart looks at the physical parametres of each winery and explores the attitudes and associations that underpin their culture of quality. He also examines how they have dealth with the challenges of viticulture in New Zealand's new "terroir". The book is illustrated with the photography of Kevin Judd, a leading wine photographer and, as the winemaker at Cloudy Bay, himself a leading figure in the New Zealand premium wine industry.
