Michael is New Zealand’s First Master of Wine in 1989 and to be recognised as Winemaker’s Winemaker in 2024 by the Institute was testament to his contribution

The Institute of Masters of Wine is the home of exceptional expertise in the wine world, founded over 70 years ago to establish an exam for the UK wine trade. ‘Master of Wine’ is now a globally recognised title held by a worldwide family of MWs. Today, there are 417 MWs based in 31 countries.

Following on with Jancis Robinson MW OBE receiving the 2024 Lifetime Achievement Award, Michael Brajkovich of Kumeu River wines in Auckland has been honoured as the 2024 Winemakers’ Winemaker, at a ceremony during ProWein trade fair in Düsseldorf.

Presented by the Institute of Masters of Wine and the drinks business since 2011, the award recognises outstanding achievement in winemaking. Masters of Wine winemakers and the previous award recipients voted Brajkovich as this year’s winner.

In 1989 Michael passed the MW examination becoming New Zealand’s first Master of Wine. Recognised by many as the pioneer of the Chardonnay movement in New Zealand and for spearheading the use of screw cap closures in the country. In 2001 he transitioned all Kumeu River Wines to screw cap closure.

Michael studied Oenology at Roseworthy College in South Australia, where he was Dux in 1981. After graduation Michael returned to the family vineyard and winery in Kumeu to take up responsibility for wine production. Since, he has travelled extensively through the world’s wine areas and had the opportunity to spend the 1983 vintage in France with the reputed house of Jean-Pierre Moueix in Libourne, near Bordeaux.
