Aotearoa Organic Wine Awards 2023 Results Announced

We are pleased to announce the results of the 2023 Aotearoa Organic Wine Awards. Many thanks to all of the vineyards who participated in this years awards, as well as judges and other volunteers who made these awards possible.

Our judges were blown away by the standard at this years Organic Wine Awards. Sometimes I am reminded of just how far ahead of the curve our wineries are. Especially as green-washing and virtue signalling become more commonplace in corporate marketing strategies, it’s so evident that you are all walking the walk!

Thank you once again for supporting the Aotearoa New Zealand Organic Wine Awards. Our mission is simple- to find and promote NZ’s best organic wines, with a view to increasing the domestic and international market share of organic wines vs non-organic.

I would love to ramp up our social media activity over the next weeks and months, if you have any imagery you could kindly send my way, I would be very grateful.

Once again- thank you to our team of volunteer judges, administration, catering and stewards. You are rock-stars! Many thanks, 

Luke Thomas, Awards Director
