About this event

Gimblett Gravels Winter Series - Elephant Hill & Trinity Hill image

Elephant Hill is located within a stone’s throw of the Pacific Ocean on the idyllic Te Awanga coast in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Established in 2003, Roger and Reydan Weiss and family set out to create an exceptional winery, restaurant and vineyards inspired by the Pacific Ocean, Cape Kidnappers and the spectacular beauty of the coastline. Every bottle of Elephant Hill wine is a proud testament to the hard work, focus and determination of the entire team.

Elephant Hill is made up of three vineyards in three renowned sub-regions of Hawke’s Bay, the coastal Te Awanga, the inland GIMBLETT GRAVELS WINE GROWING DISTRICT and the Bridge Pa Triangle.

Our belief is that great wines are hand-made wines where meticulous attention to detail starts in the vineyard. This is why all our grapes are 100% hand-picked and hand sorted in order to be very selective in using the best possible fruit to make our wines.

Trinity Hill’s story began over a bottle of wine at London Restaurant Bleeding Heart in 1987, when the idea for a Hawke’s Bay winery was born. Trinity Hill’s founders recognised the outstanding potential of the Hawkes Bay’s Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district and in 1993, the winery became one of the region’s early pioneers, planting grape vines on a barren plot which continues to produce exceptional wines today. Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels wines are crafted from vineyards within the small, sub-region. Deposited by a wandering river, these unique, stony soils create wines of character and personality.

New Zealand architect Richard Priest designed the distinctively farm-structure inspired building, with the first stage ready in time for the 1997 harvest. Originally a barrel hall, Trinity Hill’s Cellar Door an impressive space with five-metre-high ceilings and a view of the Chardonnay barrel hall – the Cellar Door is open for tastings and platters 7 days, 11am – 5pm.
