NZ: New Zealand unveils 'Pure Discovery' brand for NZ wines
New Zealand Winegrowers has launched a fresh international brand awareness message for the country's key international markets.
The trade organisation said yesterday (1 August) that it had carried out 12 months of research in the UK, US and Australian markets prior to launching the 'Pure Discovery' brand. The body said it has recognised a shift in consumer profile for New Zealand wines, with younger people, women and couples now taking more of an interest in wines from the country.
New Zealand Winegrowers global marketing director Chris Yorke said: "The New Zealand Wine brand has changed and evolved over the years. Our latest research confirms that 'Pure Discovery' is the next stage for New Zealand wine.
