The Corteva Marlborough Young Viticulturist of the Year Competition 2021 is now in its 16th year and is taking place on Thursday 1st July. This competition provides a fantastic opportunity for viticulturists 30 years or under to upskill, grow in confidence, widen their network and start making a name for themselves within the industry.

Eight young Marlborough contestants will undergo a mix of practical and theoretical questions which include pruning, irrigation, machinery, pests and diseases, budgeting, nutrition, trellising and an interview. They go head-to-head in the BioStart Hortisports event, a quickfire quiz as well as give a speech at the awards dinner.

The winner of the regional competition will then move on to compete in the National competition against six other regions.

Growing the future of the New Zealand wine industry. 

The Young Viticulturist of the Year Competition is now in its 16th year. This initiative provides a fantastic opportunity for Young Viticulturists (30 years or under) to upskill, grow in confidence, widen their network and start making a name for themselves within the industry.

The competition is based on six regional competitions, culminating in a national final. Please visit the website for a full list of all region competition dates and full terms and conditions. 

Education Days will run around the country during June to help prepare the contestants for the competition. 

The contestants must undergo a mix of practical and theoretical questions which include pruning, netting, machinery, pests and diseases, budgeting, nutrition, wine knowledge, trellising and an interview. They go head to head in the BioStart Hortisports race, a quickfire buzzer round and also give a speech at the awards dinner.  

It is a tough but rewarding experience and the winner certainly earns the prestigious title of Corteva Young Viticulturist of the Year. There are also some amazing prizes to be won at the regional and national competition.

The competition is run entirely on the generosity of sponsors who not only support the competition financially but also with their time and expertise.  A huge thank you to the competition's National sponsors.
