Crawford River Location and History

Crawford River Wines is a family owned and operated winery in the south western Victorian region of Henty. Vineyards were established on the estate in 1975 by John and Catherine Thomson.The couple were justifiably inspired by the favourable micro-climate of a cool southerly latitude with maritime influence.Crawford River is now an internationally recognized producer of fine riesling. The small estate has paved the way for the wine industry in what was traditionally dairy, wool and cattle country.

Crawford River Wine Styles

The 11ha Crawford River vineyard consists chiefly of riesling and cabernet sauvignon varieties, along with smaller plantings of cabernet franc, merlot, semillon and sauvignon blanc. It is dry grown, hand pruned, hand picked and fastidiously maintained without the use of herbicides or insecticides. Leaf plucking, shoot thinning and green pruning are all carried out to achieve the highest possible fruit quality.

Crawford River Wine Making and Philosphy

The father, daughter winemaking team of John and Belinda Thomson aims to craft high quality wine that delivers a natural expression of very special terroir.Their wines are made in small parcels with meticulous attention to detail, entirely from estate grown fruit. They employ a philosophy of minimal intervention where time and patience are of the essence. Crawford River riesling is highly renowned for outstandng purity, elegance and longevity. It is celebrated as one of the finest examples in the country. Crawford River botrytis Nektar is also acclaimed as a superb sweet wine style.
