The New Zealand International Wine Show is the largest wine competition held in New Zealand. Entry is open for wines from any country and made from any grape variety.

Announcing the 2022 New Zealand International Wine Show


Covid issuers delayed the judging of the 2021 event until February earlier this year. As a result there will be two rounds of New Zealand's largest wine competition in 2022.

 

The judging dates have been set down for the 11th to 13th October giving successful entrants plenty of time to promote their wines in the key retail months of November and December.

 

Most of the wines made in the excellent 2021 vintage will be ready for the market and with a very large harvest in 2022 it is expected there will be good entry numbers. The New Zealand International Wine Show has the most experienced judging team available and will once again be led by Chief Judge Bob Campbell MW.

 

The judges in the 2021 competition awarded 265 Gold or Double Gold medals receiving entries from Australia, USA, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Argentina, Chile, Germany, Georgia and of course a significant number from New Zealand.
