Elephant Hill is an innovative, multi award-winning winery located on the idyllic Te Awanga coast in Hawke’s Bay. As a producer of premium Hawke’s Bay wine, our vineyards enjoy the spoils of a temperate, dry climate and an extended growing season.

We firmly believe that great wine starts in the vineyard. Because of this, we manage our vineyard inputs extremely carefully and with maximum attention to detail.

  • Planning, coordinating and supervising labour inputs
  • Implementation of spray programs
  • Monitor and schedule irrigation inputs
  • Maintain proper records of vineyard operational activities, including SWNZ
