Overview

Craigow Winery was one of the first wineries established in the Coal River Valley which now has an international reputation for producing some of the world's best cool climate wines with similar climate and growing conditions to the northern wine-producing region of France. In 1822, a Scottish doctor named James Murdoch was granted a parcel of land along the banks of the Coal River. He named his property after his home in Scotland, Craigow-in-Minalthort. The current owner, also a doctor, Barry Edwards, planted his first vines in 1985 and harvested his first crop in 1993. Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and dessert wines are all available at the Craigow Wine Centre, or you are welcome to order your wines by the case online. Stop in for a tasting and enjoy a platter of Tasmanian cheese or a freshly brewed cup of coffee. The winery is only open for tastings during the summer months.
