We recently met with New Zealand Master of Wine Emma Jenkins. She has been in the wine business for 20 years and is, of course, very familiar with the New Zealand wine industry. We took the opportunity to ask her a few questions. What has changed over the last 10 years in New Zealand? “That is a great question, actually. What has changed, to my mind is a change in confidence. Previously we thought we needed to prove ourselves to the world. To compare our Pinot Noir to Burgundy etc. Now we have proven that we are capable of producing fine wine, that we have a good terroir.”

Read more in Britt’s article, and watch a video with Emma and with some beautiful NZ landscapes, on BKWine Magazine, originally published on Forbes: New Zealand Wines’ Challenges And Opportunities With Emma Jenkins MW | Britt on Forbes.
