Crown & Thieves explained

The Crown

The people who drink our wines are of the utmost
importance to us, they are the crown, they are
the royalty. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to
do what we love, to make wine the way we want
to make them. People of all types are welcome
at Crown & Thieves, we come with no political
affiliations, no judgemental attitudes, and most
importantly, no snobbery.

The Thieves

In Essence Crown & Thieves started in the cellar, we
worked hard everyday trying improve our winemaking
skills and create better wines every year. Some of these
wines came across as a little geeky and were much different than the average bottle of wine. These wines were our favourites. Instead of blending our hard work away into larger batches we would “steal” these batches and save them for a future release.

sipped by royalty?

At Crown & Thieves the customers are our royalty, those people who without we could not do what we love.
