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.
