"The Grape Taste Of New Zealand - The Guide to New Zealand Vineyards, Wines and Winemakers" is an independently created and published CD-Rom by Christchurch based husband and wife team Nigel and Marie Hanson. The guide is the only New Zealand publication focused soley on wine to be nominated for the bi-annual awards.

The competition recognises excellence across the broad spectrum of food and drink media including books, guides, newspapers, magazines, photography, CD-Roms and Websites. Past winners include Rick Stein, Donna Hay, Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson.

A record number of more than 1,000 entrants in this years Food and Drink Media awards were judged by an international jury of 49 eminent industry professionals to find the final nominees.

"It is a fantastic honour to be recognised as amongst the worlds best" say the Hansons. "This is only our first production of the guide and we are delighted that it has been so well received. We feel we have brought a refreshingly new perspective to the traditional form of wine guide by creating it in CD-Rom format, enabling so many unique and exciting features to be added. We are also extremely thankful to the many individual New Zealand vineyards and winemakers who went out of their way to contribute to the finished product."
