Craft'd Wine and Spirits Festival


Craft’d is set to showcase New Zealand’s best independent alcohol brands in July 2019.


Tickets are now officially on sale for the as Craft’d Wine + Spirits Festival, New Zealand’s only festival dedicated to small production, owner operated wineries and distilleries.

Previously The New Zealand Boutique Wine Festival, the event has been renamed to reflect the addition of boutique spirits brands to complement the small production wineries the event is famous for.

Owner and organiser, Sue Duncan says her vision to ‘celebrate independents’ is inspired by the incredible quality of emerging alcohol brands in New Zealand.

“There are 697 wineries in New Zealand and 603 of them are small production - producing some of the country’s finest wines. Likewise, there is a proliferation of exceptional New Zealand distilleries making stunning tastes and winning awards worldwide,” says Sue.

“Craft’d is the first festival to support only independent brands. Our mission is to help these small companies to grow their fortunes, and in doing so we have delivered an experiential event that provides the opportunity for guests to taste unique brands they may have never tried or even heard of. It’s a win-win.”

“Craft’d melds entertainment and education to create the perfect day out for both wine and spirit lovers, with masterclasses where visitors can learn more, along with food and music to complete the package.”

In addition to the festival, the brands will be supported on the Craft’d website, which provides a digital space for them to share their story and for readers to discover new products.

“These are exciting times for boutique alcohol businesses, and I can’t wait to show off the incredible diversity of brands and products and flavours at the inaugural event this July!” says Sue.



Craft’d Wine +Spirits Festival: Sunday, 21 July 2019, GridAKL, 12 Madden Street, Wynyard Quarter.
