Marlborough, New Zealand

Photograph by Robert Harding World Imagery/Alamy

Vineyards crisscross the sunny Wairau Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand's premier wine-growing district. The sun-drenched, sheltered plains of the valley, with its long autumns and crisp winters, produce a unique grape and more than 70 percent of New Zealand's wine.
