This unique regional awards is the largest regional wine competition in New Zealand. Entries are only accepted from wineries with wine made from 85% Hawke’s Bay grapes. Entries are received from over 90% of Hawke’s Bay wineries which also includes multinational wine makers with vineyards in and out of Hawke’s Bay.
The awards night is a formal dinner held in a spectacular silk lined marquee in the beautiful and historic Waikoko Gardens. The dinner attracts a wide representation of everyone involved in the wine industry including wine lovers, wineries, winemakers, wholesalers and retailers as well as the supporting manufacturing, bottling, transport and technical providers. It is also seen as a significant event on the Hawke’s Bay social calendar and regularly enjoys patronage of 400 guests.
Significant support is given by Eastern Institute of Technology for the use of the EIT Sensory laboratory for judging. Staff and students studying wine, tourism & hospitality and culinary are all involved throughout this event, either by assisting with judging, set up / pack down, working in the kitchen assisting the chefs, or serving wine and food to 400.
