The 500th winery in New Zealand has opened this week. St Lukes Estate Wines Ltd at Blenheim represents a significant milestone, according to New Zealand Winegrower's manager of policy and membership, John Barker yesterday (31 May).

"In 1995 there were 204 wineries in New Zealand,'' he told the New Zealand Press Association. "With the opening of the 500th winery this year, the numbers have more than doubled.''

Dr Barker credited the growth to small wineries which each sold less than 200,000 litres a year. "These 'hands-on,' boutique businesses make an enormous contribution," he said.
