Craft Wine Association Introduces Nxt Crush
Nxt Crush and Creekstone Creative provide game-changing access to craft wineries

Salem, OR, (September, 23, 2019) — The Craft Wine Association (CWA), announces an online, certified craft wine, marketplace called Nxt Crush. Nxt Crush is powered by VinoShipper, one of the largest wine-industry, Direct to Consumer compliance organizations in the United States.

Nxt Crush is disrupting the way small wineries have access to a national marketplace.
With Nxt Crush, CWA offers small wineries an extremely affordable opportunity to compete in the Direct to Consumer market. Removing the barriers to entry for wineries looking to expand their market presence while assuring all sales go directly back to the wineries themselves. Purchases happen as though customers are buying direct from wineries on their individual websites.

This is a formidable addition to the CWA’s mission to help small wineries compete.
The Craft Wine Association will actively market Nxt Crush, individual wines, and participating certified craft wineries, in time for holiday sales and beyond.

To qualify for Nxt Crush, wineries must be a Certified Craft Winery member of the Craft Wine Association and a VinoShipper partner. The CWA Association has created fast-track opportunities for interested wineries to get on board with Nxt. Crush.
