Chief Judge, Bob Campbell MW is ranked as the most experienced wine judge in New Zealand. He also has a formidable team of Assistant Chief Judges – Larry Mckenna, John Hancock and Tony Bish.

 

Last year 24 Trophies were awarded for best in class wines, winemaker and wine company of the show and the Sir George Fistonich Medal for a Legend of New Zealand Wine.  The team of 24 senior judges awarded 291 Gold Medals, 376 Silver and 700 Bronze Medals - the highest number of gold medals ever awarded reflecting the outstanding 2019 vintage in New Zealand, the run of excellent vintages in Australia and overall quality of entries.
