Stonecroft is a small, family owned winery producing organic wines in Hawke’s Bay. We specialize in making Gimblett Gravels wines from estate grown fruit. The owners are Dermot McCollum (from Ireland) and New Zealander, Andria Monin, who live on the Roy’s Hill vineyard with their children Emer and Oscar, plus Jasper the cat and Stanley the chocolate lab.
At Stonecroft, we seek to express through our wines the unique character of our vineyards and each vintage. Our intention is to make wines which are intense, full-bodied, elegant and fruit-driven, but capable of significant bottle development. The ability of our wines to improve in bottle has been demonstrated over more than 20 years, with many of the early examples still drinking well. Our total production is very small; with around 3,500 cases produced annually. Stonecroft’s three small vineyards and the winery are certified organic. All three vineyards are located in the Gimblett Gravels Wine Growing Disctrict.
The winery is best known for Syrah and has the oldest Syrah vines in New Zealand. Other varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Viognier.
