“We want every glass of Element wine to taste of our little piece of Gimblett Gravels, Wine for us is the perfect balance of Art and Science with a pinch of luck and a whole lot of passion”
THE HUMAN ELEMENT
Element is a family owned and operated business with the whole family living and breathing the experience. We uprooted from Auckland in 2012 and moved to what is now known as Element Vineyard, one of the smallest of the vineyards located on Gimblett Gravels.
Element has a total area of 4.27 ha and only 2.66 ha planted.
The block was established in 2005 with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Viognier.
Rachelle and Brewski (the German Shorthaired Pointer) spend much of their time in the vineyard making sure the fruit arrives at harvest in pristine condition.
Dom works full time at a local winery where we are all hands on crafting our grapes into fine wine.
Our two teenaged girls Zoë and Zaymia love getting stuck in to the hard work, but none so much as fruit sampling at harvest.
