The Wine
Located in Hawke's Bay, our vineyards enjoy a temperate, dry climate and an extended growing season allowing us to grow vines that display wonderful fruit purity and elegance. 
The winemaking at Elephant Hill is driven by tradition while not losing sight of what innovation can bring to the blend. Our aim is to make wines that are balanced and elegant and a true expression of the vineyards they come from.
In the winery we ferment our grapes in many small, separate batches. This allows for the nuances and character of each separate fermentation to come to the fore and be considered when blending for our Estate, Reserve or Icon wines.
You're always welcome to visit our Cellar Door and taste a selection of Elephant Hill wines (Open 7 days, closed major statutory holidays)



Tasting Fee - $5 (waived on purchase of wine)
