New Zealand wineries' confidence in global demand has kick-started fresh vine plantings in Marlborough after a five-year lull, but space will increasingly be at a premium, the chief winemaker for Pernod Ricard's Brancott Estate has said.
Export earnings increased 3 percent to NZ$1.2 billion ($1 billion) in the year ended June 30, while export volumes fell 5 percent to 169.6 million liters, New Zealand Winegrowers said in it annual report.
The winemaker, whose signature product sells for about $7.50 a bottle in U.S. stores and inspired the growth of low-priced, easy-drinking Australian 'critter labels', will charge about 13 times as much for the 'Casella 1919' brand when it's released later this year, Managing Director John Casella said in an interview in Sydney yesterday.
