At Stonecroft we make wines from grapes we grow ourselves in the Gimblett Gravels, Hawke’s Bay. The winery is family owned and operated and is a tiny operation, with two small vineyards plus an onsite winery. Established in 1982, Stonecroft has the oldest Syrah vines in New Zealand. We are well known for our Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot blends, Zinfandel, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay wines. Pruning and harvesting are carried out by hand. Both vineyards and the winery are certified organic
Over the summer our cellar door is open to visitors Friday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm (plus additional days in December and January). You will get to meet one of the owners at the cellar door and taste a selection of our organic wines. Tastings are informative but also relaxed. We are located west of Hastings in the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District®, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Picnickers are welcome. We look forward to seeing you.
