Stonecroft is a Hawke's Bay winery specialising in organic, Gimblett Gravels wines. It was established in 1981 and remains family owned and operated.
At Stonecroft, we produce only a tiny quantity of wine. We have three small vineyards, all in the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District. All of our vineyards and the winery are certified organic. Pruning, canopy management and harvesting are carried out by hand. Yields are very low and wines are made on site. We focus on getting top quality fruit and in the winery our approach is one of minimal intervention, using traditional methods. Our wines are capable of bottle age, with many of the early examples still drinking well.
Stonecroft was the first vineyard in New Zealand to commercially produce Syrah and it has the oldest Syrah vines in New Zealand. We also grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Viognier and Zinfandel.
