As any thankful farmer who works the earth will no doubt explain to those willing to listen, “Our footsteps on the fallen leaves and soil are reserved as a blessing to Mother Earth while we breathe in Father Sky.” It is in this nexus that life exists.
The history of wine in New Zealand appears rather brief, really only gaining traction in the 1960’s. However, settlers recorded the first plantings of grapes as early as 1819. Thankfully, the industry has developed quite a bit since then, so that no wine list is complete without wines from New Zealand; notably Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Skyleaf is the grateful name given to our gift from Marlborough, to all of us.
