2020 NZ Organic Wine Awards: About

“The New Zealand Organic Wine Award’s aren’t like other awards in New Zealand. We don’t have any paid sponsors (we accept product assistance from sponsors which helps us keep our costs low, but does not compromise our independent status) we don’t have glitzy award ceremonies, and we don’t have any entry fee’s.”

“We don’t have any entry requirements, other than that the wine is produced from certified organic grapes by one of the four NZ certifiers. The awards are dedicated to finding, and awarding New Zealand’s best certified organic wines, regardless of the size of the vineyard, or their ability to compete in a high cost award ceremony.”

“Our goal is to increase market share of organic wine in New Zealand, and help consumers to easily find, and select a quality organic wine.”

“We achieve our goal by judging, awarding, and promoting wines entered. We then write select tasting notes for standout wines. We work with restaurants to help them include suitable organic wines, help consumers find locations to purchase their chosen wine, and work with the vineyards to help maximise exposure following the awards.”

“We are currently working towards a better platform to connect consumers with vineyards and retailers to purchase award winning wine.”
