The Marlborough wine industry is gaining prominence as a key player in New Zealand's export economy, with latest industry figures showing continued record growth. Statistics released by New Zealand Winegrowers last week showed total New Zealand wine exports for 2015 had reached a record $1.54 billion. New Zealand Winegrowers chief executive Philip Gregan said there was no regional breakdown available but estimated 80 per cent of the total export value would have come from Marlborough.
