About 19 Crimes

19 Crimes turned convicts to colonists. In 18th-century Britain, criminals guilty of at least one of the 19 Crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. 

As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, 19 Crimes wines celebrate the rebellious spirit of the more than 160,000 exiled men and women that forged a new culture and national spirit in Australia. 

Today, 19 Crimes continues to celebrate that spirit by partnering with modern day culture creators and innovators. 

In 2020, 19 Crimes collaborated with entertainment icon, Snoop Dogg to launch Cali Red, the #1 selling single wine in IRI’s New Product Pacesetter history. His next release, Snoop Cali Rose was named the #1 Wine innovation of 2021 and later, Snoop Cali Gold was awarded #1 Sparkling Wine Innovation of 2022. The highly successful partnership prompted 19 Crimes to collaborate with tastemaker Martha Stewart to launch the #1 Wine Innovation of 2022, Martha’s Chard.
