New Zealand Winemakers Come to San Francisco

September 20, 2019

There was plenty of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc to taste Wednesday during the walk-around of New Zealand wines at Fort Mason in San Francisco. At the same time, there were also Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris wines.US distributors may think having one Sauvignon Blanc and think they have the entire country covered, said David Strada, US marketing manager for New Zealand Winegrowers, which organized the event. "That's crazy ... One of the challenges for New Zealanders is they do so much so well"
