Region Hawkes Bay

Established in 1851, Hawkes Bay is the oldest region in New Zealand and the second largest in size. Situated on the eastern coast of the North Island, the region enjoys a maritime climate tempered by hot, dry, north-westerly winds that help moderate the climate and reduce disease pressure in the area. Soils in Hawkes Bay are typically Franceee draining and of low fertility, with the best vineyard sites planted on the north-facing hillsides and river terraces. The famous sub-region of Gimblett Gravels, is delineated by the unique gravelly soils laid down by the old Ngaruroro River, which became exposed after a huge flood in the 1860's. Hawkes Bay is a region of family owned vineyards, planted primarily to red varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, although Chardonnay is also grown in the region.

Winery TRINITY HILL

One of Hawke’s Bay’s early pioneers, Trinity Hill was established in 1993 when owners Robert and Robyn Wilson together with John Hancock planted the first vines on a barren plot on the former bed of the Ngaruroro River in Hawkes Bay New Zealand. Right from the first vintage in 1997 the wines met with great acclaim. Today Trinity Hill has extensive vineyard holdings throughout Hawkes Bay including plantings of Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah with additional experimental plantings of alternative varieties including Tempranillo, Arneis and Montepulciano. The winery produces a number of wines including the premium Gimblett Gravels range and the flagship wine, Homage Syrah produced only in exceptional years.
