Craft’d Wine + Spirits Festival 2019

Celebrate New Zealand’s independent spirit

Sunday, 21 July 2019
early bird tickets go on sale April 1st!

This July the inaugural Craft’d Wine + Spirits Festival will arrive in Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter, with more than 40 small producers showcasing their tipples at a new kind of festival to grace the City of Sails.

Previously named The New Zealand Boutique Wine Festival, the event was held for the last six years at the Imperial Buildings in Auckland’s CBD – however with the inclusion of boutique Kiwi spirits and beer, the Boutique Wine Fest dons a new name and more inclusive focus!

Highly popular at last year’s Boutique Wine Festival were the masterclasses and vertical tastings and these will return for 2019’s event, with the addition of food trucks, merchandise offerings, a dispensary for bottle purchases, and even a post-event ‘Craftdparty’, to ensure the carnival atmosphere keeps flowing.

Additionally, guests can sit back and relax after tasting their way around the venue in the new Festival Club Lounge, where a range of tapas and wine matches will be available.

The Craft’d Wine + Spirits Festival will be held on Sunday 21 July, 2019, with pre-sale tickets available on 1 April and General Admission on 21 May.
