New Zealand Wine of the Year™ Awards

2018 signals a fresh approach to celebrating excellence in New Zealand wine…

Previously known as the Air New Zealand Wine Awards and the Bragato Wine Awards, the New Zealand Wine of the Year™ Awards is the official wine competition of the New Zealand wine industry.

Judging of this refreshed competition will take place at the beginning of October, with medal and trophy results to be announced in late October/early November.

To celebrate these achievements, and other achievements within the industry, the New Zealand Wine Awards will take place in our nation’s capital, Wellington, on Saturday 3 November.

Who will be awarded a coveted Gold Medal? Who will win best wine in their varietal and regional categories? And who will be crowned New Zealand Wine of the Year™ champion?

This is our official wine competition. Join us in celebrating excellence in New Zealand wine.

Entries open from 1 to 31 August for New Zealand wine industry members.
