THE STORY OF CRAGGY RANGE BEGAN WITH THE DESIRE TO CREATE A LEGACY... WHAT HAPPENED NEXT, SURPASSED EVEN THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE FAMILY WHO STARTED IT
When Australian businessman Terry Peabody visited New Zealand in 1997, he immediately recognised his odyssey had reached its destination. He realised very quickly that the promise he’d made to his wife and daughter – to create an enduring family wine legacy – had come to fruition. They may have expected Old World France. What they got was something altogether more interesting …
Terry sensed a new and exciting possibility in New Zealand, a potential he hadn’t seen elsewhere despite an extensive search of the world’s well known wine regions. The exceptional climate and the spirit of the people aligned with his own philosophy and desire to cut a new path. His ambition was not merely to emulate the greatest examples of wine styles in the world - it was bolder. He wanted to create new benchmarks with wines that would become internationally regarded as World classics - wines that would be listed in the world’s greatest restaurants and sold by fine wine merchants.
"We believe we produce some of the new Word’s most inspiring fine wines, wines that are true reflection of the place and the people. We also believe these wines represent some of the best value fine wines in the world."Terry Peabody
