Norwood’s inaugural Viticulture Day was a hit with winegrowers and agriculturalists from around the Marlborough region, with over 200 people attending the event at the Marlborough A&P Showgrounds on 22 July.
Norwood is one of New Zealand’s leading retailers of agriculture and construction machinery. Staff from Norwood’s Blenheim dealership were on site all day to showcase their range of viticulture diggers, ride-on lawn mowers, speciality tractors and grape harvesters from the world’s top brands, including New Holland, Kubota, Ferrari, Breviglieri, MX, and Provitis.
Blenheim Dealership Manager Trent Lindsay says he couldn’t be happier with how the day went.
“The team were absolutely thrilled to have so much interest in our viticulture machinery,” Mr Lindsay says.
“Our New Holland T4 tractor was particularly popular. It offers the latest technology in terms of operator comfort, power and efficiency in a compact frame, so it’s perfect for operating between the narrow rows of the vineyard without disturbing the vines.”
A digger speed ball competition also provided great entertainment for both competitors and onlookers, with the winner bucketing the ball in a time of 11 seconds, taking home a Kubota Jacket for their effort.
“We’re already looking forward to building on the event for next year,” says Mr Lindsay.
