According to British Wine Expert Oz Clarke, the Marlborough wine region is ‘one of the the greatest places on earth to grow vines, producing some of the world’s most remarkable wines.’ World renown for it’s Sauvignon Blanc, the region also produces fine Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. I interview Maverick businessman, Peter Yealands who runs Yealands Estate, a 1,000 Hectare winery that has been hailed the most sustainable winery in the world. Yealands has introduced some innovative sustainable practices in their vineyard, such as grazing miniature ‘babydoll’ sheep, instead of using mowing equipment, and developing a biodegradable plastic bottle. http://www.yealands.com/ I learn about why the Marlborough region produces such fantastic wine and also get Peter’s top three tips for running a successful business.
