Boat O'Craigo has one of the Yarra Valley's best located cellar doors. At the far end of Healesville en route to the high country, it sits above vines next to Graceburn River. Forested hills and mountains fill the panoramic windows, kangaroos and wild ducks fossick among the vines and magpies chortle in the trees. Excellent whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, elegant reds from Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Try them here with a grazing plate of local specialities, sit back and breathe the mountain air.
The ancestors of Boat O'Craigo Wines haled from the township of Craigo in Scotland. Their farm was located on the banks of the River Esk where the ferry would dock. Hence they named their farm Boat O'Craigo. Drawing from this Scottish heritage, comes Boat O'Craigo Vineyards with wines that also carry names synonymous with Scotland's history.
One of the highest altitude vineyards in the Yarra Valley, the vines lay in the foothills of the Black Spur Ranges. It is here that the cellar door is situated. Floor to ceiling views over looking the vineyard and Mt. Riddle make this a truly spectacular experience when you walk through the door.
The Kitchen is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4pm. The menu is designed for you to share with companions to enable a taste of everything. Make your choice from a range of antipasto paddles and pizzas, salads and desserts matched with your favourite Boat O'Craigo wine.
