Judging Team


CHIEF JUDGE:  Bob Campbell MW

ASSISTANT CHIEF JUDGES:  Larry McKenna & John Hancock

SENIOR JUDGES included a number of leading winemakers, Masters of Wine and many key industry personnel. Most of the senior judges have each been involved in major wine competitions for more than a decade.

The judging team in 2021 was the most experienced judging team ever assembled for a wine competition in New Zealand.

The champions List


Wines are entered into wine competitions to win medals. A gold, silver or bronze medal label on a bottle is unquestionably one of the easiest and most effective ways of promoting the qualities of a wine to the consumer. A medal can be used to promote a wine for the duration of that specific wine. Unlike a wine review that becomes dated or forgotten, a medal label has longevity.

 

The most important feature in the results from the New Zealand International Wine Show is The Champions List. The Champions List includes all the gold medal winning wines and of course the prestigious Trophies. All of the successful wines in The Champions List will benefit from nationwide exposure through newspapers, web results, tastings and emails circulated by key retailers.

  

Every gold medal wine will be listed in the Champions List.  Trophy winners will be highlighted with a detailed description on the NZIWS website, along with lists of all the medal winners. Fine wine retailers and entrants will be able to access and use the descriptions free of charge.

Competition Stewards


At this stage applications to steward at the 2022 NZIWS are full. If we require any additional stewards we will advertise for them accordingly.

Note: Entrants will not be sent judging class labels. These will be applied at the competition venue by the organisers.
