Ancient eruptions have endowed Canterbury on New Zealand’s South Island with a spectacular landform called Banks Peninsula, where huge lava flows reach like fingers into the harbor. This is where the first vintage was produced by The Crater Rim. A family-owned boutique winery, The Crater Rim grows and makes a limited quantity of terroir-specific wines in a unique house-style.
