Craggy Range Description
Craggy Range Winery, nestled beneath the majestic Te Mata Peak in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, has been crafting exceptional wines since its establishment in 1999 by Terry Peabody and winemaker Steve Smith MW. This family-owned winery has swiftly risen to prominence, producing a diverse range of premium wines that showcase the best of New Zealand’s winemaking prowess.
While Craggy Range operates vineyards across New Zealand, its heart lies in the renowned Gimblett Gravels region. The Te Muna Road estate, situated in Martinborough, is another key holding, cultivating Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and a touch of Pinot Gris. Additionally, the winery leases smaller plots in Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough.
Craggy Range’s Prestige Collection stands at the forefront, featuring five exceptional wines. Sophia, a Bordeaux-style blend, boasts Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon, while The Quarry leans predominantly on Cabernet Sauvignon. Le Sol showcases Syrah, Les Beaux Cailloux offers an elegant single-block Chardonnay, and Aroha presents a complex Pinot Noir from Martinborough.
With two cutting-edge wineries in Hawke’s Bay, including the impressive ‘Giants’ cellar door and headquarters, Craggy Range Winery combines tradition with innovation. Their commitment to quality and sustainable farming practices ensures the creation of exceptional wines that reflect the beauty and terroir of the Hawke’s Bay region.
