Elephant Hill Estate Winery, Te Awanga

4.1
#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.

  • The best Winery food I’ve tasted in NZ to date. Goes beyond taste as it’s clear they also specialise in food textures. We had such a great experience on the Saturday that we went again the following Sunday night! Didn’t expect the menu to be the same but still plenty to try out and, again, thoroughly enjoyed it. Friendly staff and magnificent views with beautiful colours.
  • Myself and my partner probably dine here 3-4 times a year. Usually having 3 courses. Every time the food is exceptional! Good fine dining and flavour combos. Service is usually pretty good and the setting is great
  • Nice location and lovely wines, with a good selection. I liked how I could customtise my tasting exactly how I'd like it. It would have been really nice if this place offered some more reasonably priced food options though. I appreciate they are trying to appeal to a particular customour, but there are surely loads of people such as us who visit and don't want to spend $40+ on lunch. Why not have a few better value options to cater for us? In the end we didn't buy any food and went elsewhere.
  • Here is very nice winery with wonderful environment. Taste of wine is very nice. Recommend to come here strongly.
  • Very nice service. Food and dessert are fantastic. Had a lovely night with my partner. Definitely will come back another time.👍
