The Marlborough Region of the South Island is known for its dry climate, the picturesque Marlborough Sounds, and Sauvignon blanc wine. In 1973, Brancott Estate began planting grapes and in 1975 settled on Sauvignon blanc , which is widely considered by many critics to be the world's best. Today 75% of New Zealand’s total wine production comes from Marlborough and its share of New Zealand’s wine exports is approximately 1.1 billion. You can visit the Brancott Estate Heritage Centre to taste some of their wines and find this box dedicated to them.
