Established in Springton in 1978, Craneford Wines was relocated to its current home in Truro in 1998. It has grown to be a self‐sufficient wine production facility. Wines are made from start to finish on site. This gives us quality control of the wine at all times.
In mid 2006, Carol Riebke was appointed as winemaker with John Glaetzer overseeing. John is a winner of four Jimmy Watson Trophy's during his extensive career as chief red wine maker at Wolf Blass Wines. As a team, Carol and John ensure that premium quality wine making remains the focus at Craneford Wines.
Fruit parcels from our growers are independently processed during the winemaking process. This maintains the unique character of each vineyard. Final blends are made only after the wines have been individually tasted and analysed to ensure that they show classic Barossa Valley flavours as well as being complex and well balanced. Craneford’s aim is to continually produce the highest quality wine from the best Barossa Valley fruit available.
The cellar door occupies the site of the old Truro Country Fire Service station. Now you can experience a piece of our history together with wines that celebrate the full flavours and unique characters of this beautiful part of the world.
