Wines of NZ was founded in 2000 and originally developed as an independent guide to New Zealand vineyards and their fine wines. The domain was considered the perfect website name from which to showcase New Zealand’s local wine achievements internationally, and becoming New Zealand’s leading independent wine information website of its time.

In 2016 the domain was sold to Grant Henderson. The domain has been redeveloped into a new, more contemporary e-commerce website with the added opportunity to buy fine wine directly online from your favorite New Zealand winery.

Knowing which wines to buy or drink with dinner can be equally hard as pronouncing their names. The key to wine shopping is to take it less seriously and approach your wine buying with a sense of fun and adventure. Taste is personal, so any wine that tastes good to you is a good wine.

We hope you enjoy your experience.
