The idea for the Trinity Hill winery in Hawkes Bay was first conceived in 1987. Trinity Hill is a partnership between John Hancock, Robert and Robyn Wilsonand Aucklanders Trevor and Hanne Janes. Three entities, hence “Trinity Hill.” Hawkes Bay is situated on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island and it is New Zealand’s warmest grape growing area, best known for producing Syrah and Bordeaux style reds. It has a temperate maritime climate which is distinctly influenced by the Pacific Ocean to the east and protected from the west by a mountain range. It has a varied array of different soil types and microclimates which makes it an exceptionally versatile and unique region. Of particular note is the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing region, which defines a particular “terroir”, with an extremely long ripening season, concentrated fruit flavours and certain minerality to some wines.
