Can you believe Elephant Hill is turning 10 this month?! We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, whether you purchased wine from us, dine with us for a special occasion or been in for a tasting. In this very special time of the year, we want to share 10 fun facts of Elephant Hill which we get asked quite often. Let's see if you know all of them!

1. Where does the name 'Elephant Hill' come from? Our founder Roger Weiss was inspired by the elephants while travelling with Reydan in Myanmar and he decided to name the winery and restaurant Elephant Hill.

2. Do you have a sweet wine? Yes, we do! It's called Rania. Roger and Reydan named the sweet wine after their daughter's name: Rania - because a sweet wine deserves a sweet girl's name! We released the first vintage of this sweet wine for Rania's 25th birthday in 2009.

3. Why is the winery building in teal colour? It resembles the colour of the sky and the Pacific Ocean on a sunny afternoon.

4. How old is Maggie the winery dog? 3

5. How many permeant staff? We started off with only 6 staff in 2008 but we currently have approximately 40 staff.

6. How many staff have been here since 2008? 6

7. What does Airavata mean? The name stems from the mythological white elephant who carries the Hindu god Indra, also called "elephant of the clouds" or "the fighting elephant"

8. Has anyone ever jumped in the green pool next to the restaurant? Yes, a few years ago. Sorry, it's NOT a swimming pool!

9. Which wine is the top-seller? Syrah!

10. How much does Elephant Hill produce? Around 20,000- 22,000 cases per year.

Can you add a Blackberry template? This page is difficult to read otherwise for those of us browsing with cell phones. Otherwise, if you can put a RSS link up, that would be great also.

Hi, just came across this article. Its a brilliant illustration of how small to medium sized companies can use Awards based advertising to get their companies ranked on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to winners. After all they bring recognition and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as much as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential customers peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and sponsorship) and those that provide promotional materials. The latter is a great choice for those who are wary about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be involved. Winners often receives online recognition, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can deliver. Other free benefits can include the use of an announcement. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further utilise their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!|

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance.
