Elephant Hill Estate Winery, Te Awanga

#2 of 8 in Things to do in Te Awanga
Enjoy a fine dining experience at family-owned Elephant Hill Estate Winery. The first thing you'll notice as you arrive at the vineyard and winery are the sights: a stunning view of the Te Awanga coast and its cliffs. You can tour the vineyards and cellar during your visit, then sit down to admire the scenery while indulging in scrumptious food. Of course, they serve the vineyard's very own wines, and each course has a suggested pairing. Some of the specialties offered include Syrah, viognier, and the proprietary blends Le Phant Rouge and Le Phant Blanc. To plan Te Awanga vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • We were a party of 15. Unfortunately unless we broke into 2 tables, slightly different timing, the restaurant could only accept us as "set menu". We chose 2 tables out on the terrace. Great service, s...  more »

  • Very nice service. Food and dessert are fantastic. Had a lovely night with my partner. Definitely will come back another time.👍
  • Great location and views. Gorgeous venue but not impressed by the wines and service (only tasted wines, didn't have any food).
  • Aesthetically one of the most fabulous vineyards in the Hawkes Bay. Food is high class as is the wine. Suggest you do a tasting and then sit outside with a glass of your favourite wine. I absolutely adore their 'Rania' desert wine. P.S. they also have a very cool underground wine cellar & library...
  • We went for the tasting. Server was good although a little shy with the pouring. Only one person doing the tastings so made our experience a bit boring as she was going back and forth. The wine was okay. 6 wines to taste and $5 pp or fee waived if you spend over $20. Must be a NZ thing because we have never payed to taste a few drops of wine before.
  • Best meal I have ever eaten
