Down on the farm

Steven Joyce the Minister for Economic Development paid a visit to the Central Otago wine community recently. The visit to Chard Farm was part of a regional tour, looking at some of the success story industries in the region and issues affecting them. He met with representatives of the local wine industry including Winegrowers Chairperson - Lucie Lawrence, Warwick Hawker of Pisa Estate, Rob Hay of Chard Farm and local NZTE representative Alan Richardson.
