Started as a hobby back in 2002 as ‘NZ Wine Links’, The New Zealand Wine Directory has developed into a valuable online resource containing over 1,200 links to everything about New Zealand Wine online. It is a curated collection of website links and information made easily accessible to wine consumers and industry folk.

From the Wineries and Vineyards, the Wine Industry, Education, Events, Tourism, Wine Sales to Social Media other NZ wine-related sites, wine news and much more.

Our new-look New Zealand Wine Directory has had millions of hits on the site and currently average 50,000 page views each month.

Wine Lovers have visited from over 60 different countries – NZ, USA, UK, Australia, Germany, India, South Africa, many European and Scandinavian countries and more recently from many parts of Asia, including China and Japan.

Visitors can Browse or Search the Directory for free and connect with our Social Media networks too. We are actively involved in promoting and sharing New Zealand wine websites, links, news, wine reviews, products, events and more…

NZ wine-related websites we identify, have a text link added to the relevant category page in the directory. Links are added regularly to the directory and we see this as an ever-growing resource for all to use.

On our blog we post a selection of news, views, tastings, events and other information about the New Zealand Wine Industry and online wine community.

John tries to attend every NZ wine event or tasting he can get to, to expand his wine knowledge-base and ‘palate experience.’ He reviews New Zealand wines on the blog and promotes them via Facebook and Twitter.

For our Partners we promote NZ Wineries, vineyards and all wine related businesses and brands to our visitors, linking them directly to your business online.

If you own or operate a New Zealand wine business we’d love to hear from you.

We hope you’ll visit regularly to connect with our New Zealand Wine community online.

Cheers – John and Glenys
