WineWorks began in 1995 to provide key bottling infrastructure for wineries. In the following 25 years we’ve grown with our winery customers, to ensure we have capacity for our customers in the New Zealand wine industry.

We’ve made (and continue to make) big investments in world-class technology, machinery and facilities, and of course our people.

Bottling, labelling, storage and distribution are highly specialised processes. WineWorks are industry experts. We have the expertise, experience and, coupled with our enthusiastic application of what we’ve learnt through Lean Manufacturing, make it easy for you. In this video, (Why WineWorks exists, which you can also click over to the right on the sidebar), our Managing Director, Tim Nowell-Usticke explains what we do for you.

For our customers, we see ourselves as the ‘gearbox’ of your business – we look after the ‘industrial’ side of bottling wine, and then store and despatch it. This enables you to do what you do best – grow and market great New Zealand wines.
