Wine Wanderlust: Elephant Hill

Elephant Hill is the result of owners Reydon and Roger Weiss visiting the area in 2001 and falling in love with it. Together they envisioned creating a state-of-the-art winery that produced world class wines. The first plantings were made in 2003 and their first vintage in 2008. Cooled by nearby Pacific Ocean sea breezes – the winery is as coastal as you can get – and warmed by long sunshine hours and low rainfall, the wines show wonderful purity and elegance, rich concentration, and a lively acidity. The grapes are 100% hand-picked and 100% sustainably farmed. Walking around the winery you immediately get the impression that every detail has to be just right. Try their Sauvignon Blanc here.
