The clean-up continues at vineyards devastated by Cyclone Gabrielle while others in Gisborne and Hawke’s bay are beginning to harvest their grapes. New Zealand Winegrowers chief executive Philip Gregan says the cyclone struck just before the grape harvest, the busiest time of year for the wine industry, and is a “major blow” for affected growers and wineries. Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne are New Zealand’s second and third-largest wine producing regions respectively producing nearly 60,000 tonnes (or 12%) of the 2022 vintage.
