General Admission: $44, VIP Admission: $85

The Boutique Wine Festival 2021 arrives at Generator @ GridAKL from the 4th – 5th of September for two days of experiential wine awakening. With over 20 small producers showcasing their artisan wines for attendees to discover and indulge in. Enjoying the relaxed festival vibe listening to live tunes, while imbibing some of the hidden gems from New Zealand’s famous wine regions.

The Boutique Wine Festival (BWF) originated in Auckland in 2013 making it one of the original wine festivals in New Zealand. After eight active years, the mission of the festivals remains the same: to promote, support and showcase New Zealand’s small wine producers, providing an experiential platform for them to share their products, their innovation and genuine passion face-to-face with the festival attendees.

This festival is a vibrant showcase of brands - some not readily available - to give attendees who love wine a sensory blast with tastes, aromas, observations, all while listening to the fascinating stories behind the crafting of each of the winemaker’s products.

For 2021 we have opened up THREE sessions to choose from:

(First session) 11:30am - 3:30pm
(Second session) 4:30pm - 8:30pm

(Third session) 12:30pm - 5:00pm

There will also be delicious morsels from our fav local food trucks, as well as red wine and white wine cheese platters to match with your wines. Merchandise offerings, a dispensary for bottle purchases, and live entertainment.

If you really want to step it up, buy a VIP ticket. VIP guests get extra special treatment with a VIP lounge area to sit back and relax after tasting their way around the venue. A range of VIP ONLY wines will be available in the VIP area along with a continuous grazing table all hosted by our masterclass facilitators and sommeliers.
