The “Pick The Trophies’ Challenge is a unique wine tasting in association with the 2019 New Zealand International Wine Show where the public has the opportunity to taste all the gold medal winning wines. The Challenge is to pick the wines that will be honoured with Trophies at the Awards Dinner the following Saturday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.


Everyone who can pick at least four Trophy selections will go into the draw to win a gift voucher to the value of $1,000 from First Glass Wines & Spirits Ltd, drawn at the conclusion of the tasting. There is only one prize and the winner does not need to be present at the time of the prize draw.


The Trophies are chosen by the judges during the actual competition judging but the identity of the winning wines remains a closely guarded secret until their announcement at the Awards Dinner. Even the judges do not know which wines have been selected. This is your chance to see how many you can identify.
