ABOUT PATRICK CARMODY:
Patrick Carmody, an agricultural science graduate, took over the management of his family farm in Sunbury in the early 1970s. When several bottles from the original winery were opened at a function in Melbourne, it became clear that the Sunbury site provided a unique terroir ideal for the growth of cool-climate wines. As a result Patrick planted vines on the site of the original vineyard in 1976 and processed the first wine in 1979. The first commercial quantity was released in 1982 with the 1980 shiraz.
Craiglee has enjoyed ongoing success with numerous Gold Medals at the Melbourne Wine Show, and as an ongoing member of the Langton's Classification of Top 100 Shiraz producers.
Patrick continues to make wine from the fruit grown at Craiglee, and is assisted by his wife Dianne and sons, as well as the constant companionship of loyal dogs Coco, Bessie and Rowdy.
