- Halliday Wine Companion 'Dark Horse Winery of the Year 2018'
Presided over by the imposing Black Spur Ranges (after which some of their wines are called), this is one producer that easily stands out from the crowd. An unorthodox-sounding brand, Boat O'Craigo owes its name to a farm near the ferry docking in Craigo, Scotland, whence the family's ancestors hail from.
Finally putting down roots in the Yarra Valley, founders Margaret & Steve Graham have nurtured their beautiful vineyards into a multi-generational, family business of burgeoning success. No effort was spared in making Boat O'Craigo a recognized and respected name with much thought put into every endeavour, in particular the care of the vines in every vintage.
The Grahams' emphasis on relationship is evident in their partnerships and incredible teamwork. Winemaker Rob Dolan, an expert of the Yarra Valley terroir, has been pivotal in creating a style that is unique to this label whilst maintaining the expression of the land.
We trust you will enjoy the fruit of their labours as we have. It is surprising, exciting and ultimately pleasing.
