    Default New Zealand

    Is there a FAQ for New Zealand? We will be going there in February on
    an unusual format as we will be on a cruise that makes 10 hour stops
    at many ports circumnavigating New Zealand from Sydney. Also any wine
    tasting opportunities within a reasonable distance from Sydney. We
    will be there 6 days.

    Yes, the FAQ entry is here:

    http://winefaq.cwdjr.net/wine/section3b.php#lkiwi

    What is a reasonable distance from Sydney? The Hunter Valley is the
    closest wine region, but it's several hours' drive from Sydney proper.
    Since most of New Zealand's wine regions are coastal, you'll be able to
    visit Gisbourne, Hawke's Bay (Napier), maybe Martinborough (Wellington)
    and Marlborough (Blenheim/Nelson).

    I think that the recommendations in the FAQ are still reasonably
    reliable despite being a few years old. I should update the information
    in the Central Otago Section, but that's not going to be on your
    itinerary anyway.

    Nope on the Central Otago as it would be a 3 hour trip from Dunedin
    and 6 hours for 2-3 hours of tasting wouldn't be viable. I would
    appreciate any additions you can make to the FAQ. By the way, how do I
    get to it now from Google Groups?

    Is it still being maintained?

    The main door for the online version for the FAQ for this group is at
    http://winefaq.cwdjr.net . This is a subdomain of my domain http://www.cwdjr.net
    which is a private domain without index. Mark Lipton takes care of the
    writing of the FAQs with input from several people. I only put this
    online in html form. Since my domain has nothing to do with Google
    Groups, you can only get to the FAQs from Google Groups if someone
    gives you the url for the FAQs on a Google Groups post, such as Mark
    Lipton did in the url he gave for the section concerning New Zealand.

    The web site has all of the current information, but some has not been
    updated for a while and some sections have not been completed. I did
    once check if all urls contained in the FAQs still worked, and changed
    or deleted some that did not work after consulting with Mark Lipton. I
    likely need to do this again. I have backups for the site both on my
    computer and DVD, and Mark Lipton is provided a new backup when there
    is some material in it that is not in the last backup.

    Please do guys. We have about 14 people who will be on the trip though
    only about 1/2 will go on the wine tasting parts.
