In the fifteen-odd years since it released its first wine, Craggy Range has firmly established itself as one of our national vinous treasures, thanks in no small part to their production, year after year, of consistently brilliant wines. Anthony Rose of the UK's Independent Newspaper put it thus: "If you don't know Craggy Range, get acquainted, because I can't think of another wine company that's managed to roll Bordeaux, Burgundy, Loire and Rhône styles into one harmonious group of wines so successfully." Right from the start, founders Terry Peabody and Kiwi viticulturist Steve Smith MW made the bold decision to pursue a single vineyard winemaking philosophy, to select the best sites in New Zealand, and plant vines suited to that terroir. Under the supervision of Chief Winemaker Matt Stafford, the wines are fastidiously crafted in small batches within two separate high-tech wineries (one for whites and one for reds). The portfolio of single vineyard wines are New World classics, and this single-minded winery is producing some of the finest and best value wines in the world.
