Our Yarra Valley Vineyards
50 acres of vines, spanning across two stunning sites, enables Boat O'Craigo to produce outstanding estate grown wines across a range of noble varieties.
The 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 being the only red vines.
A warmer site on the western edge of the valley with its rich black volcanic, basalt soil, North East facing slope, giving it maximum sun is the home of our Black Cameron Shiraz, Braveheart Cabernet Sauvignon and several other red varietals even Grenache.
The people behind the wine
Founded by Margaret & Steve Graham, Boat O' Craigo is a tight-knit family business. Together with their son & daughter, Travers & Courtenay, it is their labour of love that keeps the wine flowing.
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 hand-picked at just the right time to ensure we end up with wines of premium quality and character.
