Organic Winegrowers New Zealand, convenor of this project, is a growers' organisation dedicated to supporting and encouraging the production of high quality organically grown wines. OWNZ coordinates research, education, and publicity around organic grape and wine production and provides networking for members through a newsletter and email list. OWNZ is governed by a national committee of organic growers representing all of New Zealand's major wine regions. Anyone interested in organic viticulture is welcome to become a member.
The Organic Focus Vineyard project advisory team includes leading organic and biodynamic winegrowers from throughout New Zealand. The project manager and first point of contact is Rebecca Reider, OWNZ national coordinator (email: coordinator[at]organicwinegrowers.org.nz).
Many thanks to our generous funders and sponsors for demonstrating their commitment to growth in the organic industry and making this project possible.
