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, the Boutique Wine Fest dons a new name and more inclusive focus!
Highly popular at last year’s Festival were the masterclasses and vertical tastings and these will return for 2019’s event, with the addition of food trucks, merchandise offerings and a dispensary for bottle purchases. 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 is a 100% cashless event, which allows our exhibitors and food outlets to prevent queues and serve you faster. As you buy your ticket, we highly recommend purchasing Craft’d Currency so you don't have to worry about this once you arrive at the venue, and can get straight into the tasting. You can pre-purchase amounts of $25 with your ticket. And, if you have any Craft’d Currency remaining after the event, online refunds are available (minimum $1 refund).
