Stonecroft is a small, family owned winery making organic Gimblett Gravels wines in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. The owners are Dermot McCollum and Andria Monin, who took the reins at Stonecroft in 2010 and converted to organic production. The owners are very hands on, managing the vineyards, winery and cellar door themselves.
At Stonecroft, we seek to express through our wines the unique character of our vineyards and each vintage. We seek to make wines which are intense, 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 30 years, with many of the early examples still drinking well. Our total production is very small; with around 2500 cases produced annually over a number of varieties. Both the vineyards and the winery are certified organic.
