“To preserve the varietal expression of the fruit grown on our estate vineyards and to produce elegant, sophisticated and fruit driven wines that express the personality and character of the region from which they are grown.”

Our Wines

Elephant Hill is a producer of premium single-estate beautiful Hawke’s Bay wine.

Our vineyard enjoys the spoils of a temperate, dry climate and an extended growing season. Cooled by afternoon Pacific Ocean sea breezes, the shingle vineyard grows wines that display a wonderful fruit purity and elegance.

The afternoon sea breeze is perfect for preserving a lively acidity, yet allowing excellent maturation and ripening of the grapes. This moderated climate results in intense flavour development ensuring that distinct wines are produced representing the terrôir of Te Awanga.

With the distinctive Elephant-hide effect labels our wines reflect our dedication to produce classical, aromatic white wines and world class reds.
