Kim Crawford is a veteran of the Sydney wine scene.
He’s won at most of the biggest wine festivals in the world and he’s done it without the help of any fancy wine-making equipment.
“I have been in this industry for a very long time,” Mr Crawford says.
“The wines I have won have all been from a small number of wineries.
Firstly, the quality of the wine is always so low and the wine never stays in the bottle for long. “
There are a few reasons why it doesn’t work for me.
Firstly, the quality of the wine is always so low and the wine never stays in the bottle for long.
Secondly, I don’t drink it with a big glass of red wine.
It’s not a big drinker’s drink.
It just never works for me.” “
So I’ve always been a wine person and I’m a wine drinker myself.
It just never works for me.”
What is kim’s secret?
Kim has had a good wine-growing experience.
“My mum, she was in the wine business for 10 years and when she died in 2013, she gave me some land,” Mr Crawford says.
Mr Crawford and Mr Crawfield started in 2007 by growing vines at a winery in Sydney’s west.
It was a lot like growing a vineyard but in a different way.
The vines grew on the land but they didn’t produce grapes.
Instead, the vines produced seeds which were then picked up by Mr Crawford.
Mr Crawfords vines are now on the vineyards of a local winery and the pair say the experience was “the best winery experience I’ve had”.
Mr Crawford has a knack for finding the best wine grapes and has developed a taste for the best wines.
“When we first started growing grapes, it was really difficult because it was a very expensive vine,” he says.
