These unique regional awards are the largest regional wine competition in New Zealand. Entries are only accepted from wineries with wine made from 85% Hawke’s Bay Grapes.

Entries are received from over 90% of Hawke’s Bay Wineries which also includes multinational wine makers with vineyards in and out of Hawke’s Bay. The winners are celebrated with an awards dinner on 22nd October in the beautiful Waikoko Gardens at the A & P show grounds in Hastings.

I just want to pass on my thanks to Wine Works for your team’s response and action in resolving our problem. They resisted the urge to play the blame game because, either the cap was faulty, the bottle was faulty or the application  was faulty, or a combination of these factors.

At the end of the day Lake Chalice had a problem  product and we just needed it fixed before worrying about whom to blame.

I just wanted you to be aware of the problem  and how professionally and well I believe it was fixed.

Phil Binnie, General Manager, Lake Chalice Wines

When we started out, Wineworks were the only company we worked with who would say “Yes”
