Hawke’s Bay based Craggy Range has announced that Aaron Drummond has joined the board of directors. Drummond served as general manager at Craggy Range from 2015 until late 2022, when he and his family relocated back home to Australia.

Since returning to Australia, Drummond along with two partners, purchased Stonier Wines, bringing the iconic Mornington Peninsula producer back into local family hands.

Drummond has been passionate about fine wine all his life, starting his career at Mount Langi Ghiran before overseeing sales & marketing for the Rathbone Wine Group (Yering Station, Mount Langi Ghiran, Xanadu). Drummond moved to Craggy in 2015 and was also a member of the NZ Pinot 2021 Board and the Hawke’s Bay Wine Board.

“It is with great pleasure I can confirm that Aaron Drummond has now joined Craggy Range’s board. Aaron is a unique talent in the world of wine, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have Aaron’s continued involvement with us,” Terry Peabody, owner and founder of Craggy Range said.
