Did you know New Zealand is home to some of the world's finest wineries across 11 major wine regions and a widely varied topography, from mild subtropical islands to rugged mountainous terrain? One winery that’s been gaining a lot of popularity is the family-owned winery Elephant Hill, located on the idyllic Te Awanga coast in Hawke's Bay.
Currently under the leadership of its second generation, Andreas Weiss, the winemaking at Elephant Hill is driven by tradition while not losing sight of what innovation can bring to the blend, creating wine that are balanced and elegant and a true expression of the vineyards they come from — the coastal Te Awanga Vineyard, the inland Gimblett Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowers District, and The Triangle Vineyard in the Bridge Pa Triangle region. We recently caught up with them to discuss new updates at the winery.
