Boat O’Craigo Vineyards

Nestled in Victoria’s acclaimed Yarra Valley, Boat O’Craigo is a second generation, boutique vineyard renowned for producing some of Australia’s finest hand-crafted wines. We have 50 acres of vines, spanning across two stunning sites which enables Boat O’Craigo to produce outstanding estate grown wines across a range of noble varieties.

Healesville

This cooler, more sheltered vineyard site nestled in the foothills of the Black Spur Ranges has alluvial river gravel soils and has perfect growing conditions for our early ripening varieties including Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Kangaroo Ground

A warmer site on the western edge of the Yarra Valley, this unique vineyard has a north east facing slope with rich black volcanic, basalt soil which provides for maximum sun and ideal ripening conditions for our Black Cameron Shiraz, Braveheart Cabernet Sauvignon and several other red varietals including Grenache.

History

Our winery’s distinctive name echoes that given to a farm in the town of Craigo in Scotland.

History

 

Our winery’s distinctive name echoes that given to a farm in the town of Craigo in Scotland.

Craigo is where our ancestors settled alongside the docking point for the ferry that crossed the North Esk River. The Boat O’Craigo name and traditions have drifted across seas to settle and book-end Victoria’s burgeoning Yarra Valley.

As with the ferry’s docking-point, it is here at the gateways to the Yarra Valley that the physical journey of our travels ends, although the journey of the senses is only just beginning.

The Wines

Our single vineyard wines are hand crafted from grape varieties specifically chosen to suit each site. We crop at lower yields to concentrate the flavour of our fruit which is hand-picked at just the right time to ensure we end up with wines of premium quality and character.
