We Believe in Quality
FROM FRUIT to Glass
We represent producers of cider, fruit & vegetable wines, mead, alcoholic ginger beer and alcoholic kombucha in NZ.
The Fruit Wine & Cider Makers Association of New Zealand’s (FWCMANZ) is an Incorporated Society, formed to act as the national representative body of all makers of non-grape wine carrying on business in NZ. This includes cider, fruit & vegetable wines, mead and alcoholic kombucha & ginger beer. Our role is to:
• provide a legal voice and communication for the sector;
• promote non-grape wine; and
• provide education and information for the industry.
Quality, Expertise, Mouth- Watering Goodness
We run the annual Fruit Wine & Cider Awards; a key platform for promoting quality fruit wines and cider as well as helping producers to learn and benchmark their products.
We support the annual Cider Festival which brings together cider producers across NZ to celebration of the diversity of Cider.
As the single national representative body of non-grape wine, we represent the joint and varied interests of the industry, particularly on legislative and regulatory issues.
Membership of FWCMA. is open to anyone involved in non-grape wine production by payment of the compulsory Commodity Levy, as required by MPI.
Our members range from high volume operations to small boutique producers.
Cider has experienced a renaissance. A rebirth. A great rising. There’s a whole new world of New Zealand cider makers out there producing innovative and tasty products.
