Who needs to register?
If you are a wine producer, bottler, or an exporter with your own wine brand, you need access to Wine e-Cert to apply for approval to export New Zealand grape wine. If you are a contract winemaker you will need access to Wine e-Cert so that you can confirm winemaking details for your clients.
