In-field post-earthquake performance observations of winery facilities in the Marlborough region, New Zealand, were documented following the 14 November 2016 Kaikōura earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. Observations presented and discussed herein include land damage to vineyards and the performance of winery building facilities, legged and flat-bedded storage tanks, barrel racking systems, and catwalks. A range of winery facilities were instrumented with tri-axial accelerometers to capture seismic excitations during aftershocks, with the specific aim to instrument different storage tanks having varying capacities and support systems to better understand the dynamic performance and actual forces experienced up the height of the tanks during an earthquake, with preliminary results reported herein.
