It's like a fleet of helicopters flying overhead. 

That's how people have described the sound of new vineyard frost fans in Masterton.

Matahiwi Estate has installed nine new duel blade frost fans, sparking the creation of the Matahiwi Frost Fan Action Group.

Member Erica Kinder told Heather Du Plessis-Allan the fans are unbearable.

“So there’s a big force of air pressure that exerts from these things and it’s like a blast that’s in your house, so the whole house vibrates.”
