Recently we held a webinar with Philip Gregan, CEO of New Zealand Wine Growers Inc, to give an update on the New Zealand wine sector and the outlook post-Covid.
Philip gave some fantastic insights into the growth and development of the New Zealand wine sector over the last 25 years, as well as an update on the industry’s innovations and focus markets to help capture future growth. Philip’s time in the industry and his knowledge of the wine sector showed through with his solid grasp of the topic. This was further enhanced by questions from those attending the webinar and questions from Con Williams, GM of MyFarm Investments.
