The Auckland Wine Underground Map is perfect for discovering the wineries on the doorstep of New Zealand’s largest city. This easy-to-view map presents each main road colour coded to make it easy to follow. The whole design is in the style of Harry Beck’s topological London underground map from 1931. The Wineries indicated all have open cellar doors/tasting rooms whether seasonal, all year round or by appointment.
Auckland’s winemaking history began in the western suburbs of the city. For many years, Henderson was the commercial hub of the New Zealand wine industry, with the oldest winery being established in 1902. As urbanisation took hold, it migrated North towards, Kumeu, Matakana and Warkworth, and the South around Clevedon and Whitford.
Today, as urbanisation makes the land too valuable for vineyards a large concentration of wineries moved to the outskirts of the city. However, many great wineries are still within an hour’s drive of the city centre.
It’s fun, great looking and wonderfully informative. A very cool way to explore New Zealand’s ten wine growing districts. Enjoy this great looking and wonderfully informative poster. This is a cool gift for the beginner, intermediate and expert wine enthusiasts.
