The South Island of New Zealand has long been famed for its stunning, unspoiled and varied landscapes – native forests, snow-capped mountains and kilometers of lush greenery that sweeps to the edges of a spectacular coastline.

With its small population, isolated location and agricultural economy – it has earned its clean, green image, with visitors often describing the South Island as "an unspoiled paradise".

Equal to the international acclaim for the country's beauty is the praise for its fine wines. With wine-growing regions spanning the latitudes 41.5 to 45 degrees south and covering the length of 800 kilometers, the South Island hosts one of the wine world's most picturesque and productive wine settings.
