Fine Wines of New Zealand

The Fine Wines of New Zealand programme celebrates and showcases the finest wines New Zealand has to offer. It is curated annually by six of New Zealand’s leading wine experts — Masters of Wine Alastair Maling, Michael Brajkovich, Sam Harrop, Simon Nash and Steve Smith along with Master Sommelier Cameron Douglas. One of the key criteria is consistency, with a wine having had to have been produced to an exceptional standard for a minimum of five consecutive years. Air New Zealand is a patron of the Fine Wines of New Zealand and provides promotional support to the wineries onboard and via its marketing channels. We have made a selection of the Fine Wines available for you to purchase, by using your Airpoints Dollars™ or by credit card, and have them delivered to your door, worldwide.
