The Cresswell Jackson New Zealand Wine Trust was established in 2011 to provide funding for the professional enhancement and continued success of the New Zealand wine industry.

The Trust is the beneficiary of unopened bottles of wine that are surplus from the wine competitions run by Wine Competition Ltd. The Trust then auctions these bottles of wine with proceeds forming the basis for grants from the Trust.
