Steger Vineyard Planting Complete

After an intense four month process, Sauvignon Blanc planting, posting and guarding at the 27 hectare Steger Vineyard is now complete.  
Indevin have taken a long term land lease on this site which is situated in the picturesque lower Waihopai Valley to further strengthen its Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc supply base.

Indevin's General Manager Viticulture & Supply Shane Speakman says "Each and every vineyard development is an interesting challenge and watching a vineyard transform from bare land to being fully planted in four months is something quite special".

Shane expects a small production of fruit to come off the vines in vintage 2016 and for the vineyard to be at full production by vintage 2017.
