About Boat O'Craigo

Boat O'Craigo was founded in 2003 by Swinburne alumnus and entrepreneur Stephen Graham (Dip Civil Engineering, 1973). He named the vineyards in memory of his ancestors.

Boat O'Craigo comprises two distinct vineyards. The Black Spur range of white wine is grown in the high-altitude 12-hectare site at Healesville. The reds are grown within the rich volcanic soils of Kangaroo Ground on the opposite side of the Yarra Valley.

Steve is a significant supporter of Swinburne University. He has a strong commitment to providing educational opportunities for young people, particularly giving a 'headstart' to students struggling with difficult circumstances. Steve also has a passion for leadership. He was the founding benefactor for the Centre for Leadership and Public Interest at Swinburne.
