New Zealand wine exports have increased ten-fold in the last decade according to recent statistics.

US Government figures, released today (9 July), show that ideal climatic conditions resulted in an "excellent harvest" in early 2008, up 39% over the previous year.

New Zealand experienced another record-breaking harvest in the 12 months from March 2008 to February 2009. According to the 13 June 2008 estimate released by industry organisation the New Zealand Winegrowers, grape production in MY 2008/09 reached a record 285,000 tons.

While producing vineyards continue to expand, ideal climatic conditions were a major factor accounting for the record harvest, according to the report.

Moving forward, as the New Zealand wine industry continues to expand at a rapid pace, its future growth will depend on its response to a range of production, economic and marketing challenges currently confronting the sector including water and power shortages, waste issues and exchange rates.
