Craggy Range one of top 100 global wineries

It’s the Giant’s Winery by name and it’s now officially one of the world’s best 100 wineries, according to the 31st annual Wine & Spirits magazine, published this month, which has rated Craggy Range as the only New Zealand winery to make the 2017 list.

The Hawke’s Bay winery joins other iconic wine producers from around the world, including Domaine Zind-Humbrecht, Duckhorn, Champalou, Louis Roederer, Henri Bouillot, Bergstrom, Stag’s Leap, Krug, Louis Jadot, Ridge and Penfolds.

Craggy Range chief winemaker Matt Stafford said the accolade strengthened the family owned winery’s resolve to be consistently one of the world’s best.

Wine & Spirits magazine is one of the most influential publications in the United States and is read by over 200,000 members of the North American wine community. The publication reviews over 13,000 wines every year.

Wine Wednesday kicks off in Wellington… 5.30pm tonight at Regional…

If you’re at a loose end on your way home from work tonight, pop into Regional Wines & Spirits between 5.30pm and 7pm for the first of our Wine Wednesdays in Wellington…

It’s an informal chance to check out our wine of the week, a top drop under $20 from the sunny south of Italy – the Puglia region.

The wine of the week is…

2013 Menhir Primitivo Quota 29, $19.99 – a big black beauty of a red that tastes like velvet, dark chocolate and big ripe blueberries. Delicious stuff and a bargain buy under $20.

Tonight’s Wine Wednesday tasting will also feature a bunch of beauties from Lamont Wines in New Zealand’s deep south.

The details… 

Wine Wednesdays… No bookings are needed, rock up to Regional between 5.30pm and 7pm, pay $5 at the door and enjoy tasting, sipping, drinking a mid week vino or three.
