40+ Years of Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand

Did you know that Sauvignon Blanc has been grown in New Zealand for over 40 years?  It all started in Marlborough on the South Island in 1973 and has spread north and south.  Before there was Sauvignon Blanc growing in Marlborough there were sheep grazing.  New Zealand still has a lot of sheep; many more than there are people, but now there are bottles of refreshing Sauvignon Blanc to go with the rack of lamb or lamb chops.
