About Trinity Hill Winery
Trinity Hill’s story began over a bottle of wine at London Restaurant Bleeding Heart in 1987, when the idea for a Hawke’s Bay winery was born. Trinity Hill’s founders recognised the outstanding potential of the Hawkes Bay’s Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district and in 1993, the winery became one of the region’s early pioneers, planting grape vines on a barren plot which continues to produce exceptional wines today. Trinity Hill Gimblett Gravels wines are crafted from vineyards within the small, sub-region. Deposited by a wandering river, these unique, stony soils create wines of character and personality.
New Zealand architect Richard Priest designed the distinctively farm-structure inspired building, with the first stage ready in time for the 1997 harvest. Originally a barrel hall, Trinity Hill’s Cellar Door an impressive space with five-metre-high ceilings and a view of the Chardonnay barrel hall – the Cellar Door is open for tastings and platters 7 days, 11am – 5pm.
