North Canterbury Vines die after wrong chemical is sprayed
Two North Canterbury vineyards are mourning the loss of their vines after they were accidentally sprayed with the wrong chemical. Although it is currently unknown what chemical was actually sprayed, the owners are blaming the mislabeling of a common insecticide for the problem.
New Zealand Wine Tours is devastated at the loss of these innocent vines and our hearts go out to their surviving companions in the region. I would like to suggest a couple of one-off wines these vineyards could release to raise funds for the funeral – The RIP Riesling and the Posthumous Pinot.
