‘Craggy Range’ is a family owned New Zealand winery that began in 1998 and is now one of the most well respected and recognisable brands in the country. Located in the prestigious region of Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay, ‘Craggy Range’ was the first winery in the Southern Hemisphere that specialised in Single Vineyard winemaking, sourcing the very best grapes from New Zealand’s top winegrowing regions, planting on green fields and bare land to ensure a focus on quality from the word go.
‘Craggy Range’ was started by Terry Peabody and is now a complete family endeavour with members working in all different aspects of the business. The Peabody’s are a devoted family who want to see the ‘Craggy Range’ Legacy live on for all future generations, which is why Terry placed the winery in a 1000 year trust! We commend and thank Terry’s foresight … for completely selfless reasons of course. Thinking ahead is a common philosophy within the Craggy Range family as the trust is also designed to set up generational guardianship of the land, so that not only with the land stay preserved, our glasses will stay full. Sustainability is at the forefront of what ‘Craggy Range’ does, allowing them to support their needs for today while providing an economic, biological and environmentally-minded future for tomorrow.
‘Craggy Range’s’ wine portfolio consists of three collections. ‘The Family Collection’, ‘The Appellation’, The iconic ‘Prestige Collection’ as well as limited release wines. The family collection consists of our favourites, the Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Syrah, Pinot Noir, a Bordeaux Blend and staff favourite the Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay. The ‘Prestige’ collection showcases the ‘Le Sol Syrah’, ‘Sophia Red Blend’ and the ‘Aroha Pinot Noir’. The reputation of the ‘Craggy Range’ portfolio is synonymous with their quality of wines and attention to detail.
