Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Hawke's Bay Region / Te Awanga / Elephant Hill
Enjoy a fine dining experience at family-owned Elephant Hill. 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.

A short distance from Napier, it was well worth the drive to dine here. The pork belly, soft shell crab and sauces was busy but delightful. The dory and prawn was consumed with equal relish. The glass of reserve Syrah was as smooth as silk.
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.
