The win was a testament to all the hard work from the entire Invivo team. As a lean and fully capable team with just 15 members at our winery and office working across all departments from production and winemaking to sales, marketing and finance, every person’s role at Invivo counts. At a time when trading internationally is tougher than ever, we couldn’t do it without every team member, Graham and SJP, and all of our importers and distributors around the world who believe in Invivo and what we do. We’d also like to thank the judges, the other finalists – we were amongst some tough competition! – and the sponsors. These two wins mean the world to all of us at Invivo and make us proud to be part of the Waikato.

We’d also like to thank Foster Construction Group who are the major sponsors of the Waikato Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
