Tucked into the base of Roy’s Hill on the western edge of the Gimblett Gravels, the Richard Priest-designed concrete structure housing the cellar door and winery has an industrial edge and makes a real impression on the landscape. While enjoying your wine tasting, you can watch the activity happening in the barrel hall through the glass doors.
Things to know
Established in 1993 by winemaker John Hancock and London restaurateurs Robyn and Robert Wilson, Trinity Hill is a true Gimblett Gravels pioneer, cementing a reputation for rich chardonnays and Bordeaux-style reds before embarking on a syrah programme that helped secure its pole position. Long-time chief winemaker Warren Gibson crafts wines from sauvignon blanc, arneis, chardonnay, pinot gris, viognier, pinot noir, syrah, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, cabernet sauvignon, malbec and even touriga nacional! It’s unlikely to be open for tasting, but the Homage Syrah is an iconic wine and an international award winner.
For a hint of Spain, the tempranillo is a must-sip.
Ask one of the cellar door staff to sneak you upstairs to take in the awesome, elevated view of the Gimblett Gravels from the veranda. On sunny days you can put together a picnic basket in the tasting room and enjoy it on the lawn.
