Garry Crittenden is a true pioneer in the Australian wine industry. He was the first vintner to see the potential of the Mornington Peninsula as a thriving wine region.
It is said that behind every successful man is likely to be the guiding hand of a strong woman. Our founding father Garry turns that idea on its head and freely acknowledges that in his case his late wife of forty-nine years was not behind but ahead of him in every respect.
The second Crittenden generation, siblings Rollo and Zoe, both grew up among the vines watching their father make magic out of grape growing. These days they have embraced and taken on the family business with Rollo controlling the winemaking and general management and Zoe taking care of all of the marketing, allowing their father Garry to move into (semi!) retirement.
