Background

Kim Crawford Wines was established in late 1996, when Kim and Erica Crawford launched a range made from fruit grown on the South Island. The Crawfords sold the company to Constellation in 2005 and subsequently handed the winemaking reins over to the Constellation winemaking team, led by chief winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst who had trained under Kim. Despite Kim Crawford no longer being involved with these wines, the current winemakers and viticulturalists continue the classic Crawford philosophy and style. Control over grape supply has always been essential and Constellation continues to maintain good contracts with growers in the region, ensuring consistency of quality and style.
