2014 Southern Hemisphere Harvest Report: Australia and New Zealand | Vitabella Wine Daily Gossip | Scoop.it

Ready to taste the first wines of 2014? While vines are just flowering in Europe and North America, the Southern Hemisphere has picked, crushed and fermented this year's crop.

Conditions were ideal on New Zealand's South Island, but on the North Island, harvest was a challenge if growers didn't pick before heavy rains arrived.
