Owner description: We welcome visitors to our rustic Cellar Door. Our winery is a true family owned, boutique operation where wines are made, bottled and labelled on site. Come in for a wine tasting of our organic, Gimblett Gravels wines. Visitors are welcome to bring picnics. Stonecroft produced the first Syrah in New Zealand and visitors can view the original row of vines planted in 1984. Next door to the cellar door is the historic Old Winery, which was the first winery to built in the Gimblett Gravels. Our cellar door is open from Labour weekend (at the end of October ) until Easter, Friday to Sunday 11am to 4pm.

Stonecroft had a reputation for its syrah, and we hoped to stop by and taste it, but alas, it was sold out! but the new owners are working hard to keep the reputation strong, and had a few other interesting wines to taste, such as the Old Vine Gewurtz, and Zinfandel. We really enjoyed both, and although the Zin was light in color, it had that classic brambly fruit spice and we bought it. The cellar door is not at all flash, quite boring really, but it's always a joy to taste wines with the owner/winemaker and be the only ones in the place.
