New Zealand Winegrower has been the definitive journal of the New Zealand wine sector for more than 20 years. It is owned by the grape growers and winemakers of the country, through their national organisation, New Zealand Winegrowers.


As one of the most important export industries in New Zealand, the wine sector has had a meteoric rise. From Sauvignon Blanc to Syrah, Pinot Noir to Chardonnay, our wines are taking the world by storm.


Enabling that to happen are the people who grow the grapes, the winemakers who produce the wine, the scientists who lead the world in wine-related research, the marketers who promote the wine and the industries who support the sector.


There are literally thousands of individuals who play a part in the production of our world-renowned wines and the majority of them read New Zealand Winegrower.


With a team of informed reporters, spread from Auckland to Central Otago, New Zealand Winegrower is the one stop for all the latest news and information.


Produced bi-monthly, the journal has a strong regional focus, providing up to the minute information on what is happening out there where the wine is being created. New techniques, research, practical advice, sustainability, marketing and local and export markets are all covered within the journal.


If you want to reach anyone within the wine sector, then New Zealand Winegrower is the most effective way to do so. Highly regarded, it is the only "official" magazine of the New Zealand Wine Industry.
