Fruit Wine & Cider Awards

Since 1984

About the Awards

The NZ Fruit Wine and Cider Awards have been held annually since 1984 but due to the recent phenomenal growth of the Cider industry the NZ Cider Awards have been held independently since 2015. The Awards .

The Awards aim to recognize the high quality of Cider produced in New Zealand as well as the growing range of styles available. Whether you like complex, dry ciders or lighter, sweet ciders or cider blended with fruit you are bound to find a cider you like by checking out our most recent Awards results.
