“Enjoyable wine tasting, excellent dining experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

We recently dropped into the Elephant Hill Winery, after reading about them while researching the Hawke's Bay Food Trail and based on the very positive responses they had received on Tripadvisor. We did have an excellent meal here and we enjoyed the wine tasting experience we had beforehand as well.

The wine tasting was nice, lots of explanations provided, it was casual but structured and the wines, particularly the whites here quite good. We enjoyed the Chardonnay (2010) the best. Unfortunately, this was had during our lunch only, not being available for tasting. Of note, the Syrah (2010) and a very sweet and friendly Pinot Juice, were also quite enjoyed during the wine tasting.

Overall, the wine tasting experience here was good. Truth be told, we found wines elsewhere that we enjoyed more but we had fun tasting here and simply loved our lunch at their restaurant. Not sure if we would return for the wine tasting again or not but we'd definitely come back her to dine.

“Fantastic dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Totally superb dining. 4 outstanding meals and even a free desert for my birthday. The service was wonderful too though a certain young man could loosen up a smidgen. Very im pressed with the waitresses knowledge of the meals and how they are cooked. 5 star experience!
