Organic winegrowers cooperate with nature.

OWNZ engages in research and education to promote knowledge-sharing about organic growing and works to educate the world about New Zealand organic and biodynamic wines.

Organic grape and wine production is a growing part of the New Zealand wine world. Ten percent of New Zealand wineries now hold organic certification, including many of our iconic, world-renowned producers.
