Boat O’Craigo Vineyards are a boutique wine producer located in the Yarra Valley. Over 50 acres of vines, spanning across two sites, enable Boat O’Craigo to produce outstanding, estate grown wines across a range of noble varieties.
The Yarra Valley is Victoria's oldest wine region, with over 3600 hectares under vine. It is also Victoria's most visited wine area, located just one hours drive from Melbourne's CBD and airport. The Yarra Valley is cool in relation to the rest of Australia's viticultural regions. The region is cooler than Bordeaux but warmer than Burgundy. Elevation varies from 50m – 400m.
The Boat O’Craigo name and tradition have drifted across seas to settle and book-end Victoria’s burgeoning Yarra Valley with two magnificent vineyards.
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.
Our aim is to deliver quality wines to you. Therefore we decided to plant our vines in the most suitable location for each individual variety.
We have two vineyard sites within the Yarra Valley; our Black Spur range of white wines come from our high altitude vineyard at Healesville, whilst the reds are grown within the rich volcanic soils of Kangaroo Ground.
