Maori-owned wine company Tohu Wines is expecting a good harvest this year.

James Wheeler, a board member of 50% shareholder Wakatu Incorporation, says the company expects to produce up to 90,000 cases of wine this year to meet solid customer demand in New Zealand and overseas.

He told Waatea News that picking started this week of 700 tonnes of sauvignon blanc grapes from its Waihopai vineyard.

He thinks Tohu Wines will have exceptional year.
