Organic Wine Week

Written by  Staff Reporters

In its fourth year, Organic Wine Week is happening during the Spring Equinox, from 20 to 26 September 2021.

Chair of Organic Winegrowers New Zealand, Clive Dougal, says the week celebrates organic wine and its importance to the New Zealand wine story.

This year's event includes new activities like bespoke tastings and virtual events.

"Over the last 12 months we have seen a massive upswing in demand for organic wine. Consumer awareness is increasing as more and more people want to know where the product they are choosing comes from, how it's grown and the impact it has on the environment," says Clive.

Organic Wine Week has a broad audience with wineries, restaurants, retailers and consumers taking part.

A calendar of events will be released in August on the Organic Winegrowers New Zealand website.
