UPDATE: The IWC Merchant Awards New Zealand entries have been postponed.

Following extensive consultation with the New Zealand retail community, the overwhelmingly positive response to date highlights the potential of these awards to make a significant difference to liquor stores, importers, online wine retailers, agents and cellar door experiences across the country. Part of this feedback prompted us to review the timing schedules of the upcoming awards and, as such, we have taken the decision to postpone all entries until 2016. 

We are continuing to discuss our plans with the retail trade and will confirm the new entry dates shortly. If you would like to receive updates when the competition re-opens for entries, please create an account here.
