Nelson winery Kaimira Estate took-out the title of Sustainable Vineyard of the Year at the NZ Organic Wine Awards which are now in their second year, along with golds for Richmond Plains and Sunset Valley Vineyard.

The New Zealand Organic Wine Award’s aren’t like other awards in New Zealand. The only entry requirement is that the wine is certified organic by one of the four NZ certifiers. The awards are dedicated to finding, and awarding New Zealand’s best certified organic wines, regardless of the size of the vineyard, or their ability to compete in a high cost award ceremony.

The goal of the Awards is to increase market share of organic wine in New Zealand, and help consumers to easily find, and select a good organic wine.
