New Zealand 'WineGrower' Magazine Presents New Look

Press Release: August 15, 2011

New Zealand 'WineGrower' Magazine Presents New Look

New Zealand's only official wine magazine has undergone a revamp, to coincide with its 14th anniversary.

Founded in 1997 by industry stalwart Terry Dunleavy, New Zealand WineGrower has been the voice of the wine industry ever since. Mr Dunleavy retired from the position as editor in July and has been succeeded by Tessa Nicholson.

While the new look is a startling contrast to the old, Ms Nicholson says the goals of the magazine haven't changed.

"Back in 1997 the aim was to provide information, news and research relevant to the New Zealand wine industry, to all members. That is still the goal, 14 years later."

The latest issue coincides with the annual Romeo Bragato Conference, being held in Auckland later this month. It is the largest issue of the year, and features include a Rugby World Cup focus, the recent New Zealand Winegrower's Exporters' Forum and a review of the Organic Focus Vineyard undertaken in Hawkes Bay.

Ms Nicholson has introduced a number of new features, including Money Matters with NZForex, which will focus on helping exporters deal with the every changing exchange rate and Sommelier's Corner with New Zealand's only Master Sommelier, Cameron Douglas.

"There will also be a strong focus on the country's wine growing regions and the people within those regions," Ms Nicholson says.

The bi-monthly magazine published by Rural News is due out later this week.
