Three-Year Sponsorship for Corbans Viticulture Wine New Zealand Seminars

In an increasing calendar of trade events and wine road shows, WINE NEW ZEALAND is proud of its distinction as an established, dynamic and comprehensive national event.

In further developing this platform, dmg world media is delighted to announce that Corbans Viticulture has confirmed a three-year term as the official naming rights sponsor of the Corbans Viticulture WINE NEW ZEALAND Seminars.
