Iconic HB Winery Trinity Hill back in NZ Ownership

It is with great pleasure that a group of private investors announce their acquisition of Trinity Hill Limited.

Mitch Plaw, Director and one of the new Trinity Hill owners, said, “Trinity Hill is a fantastic company, with an amazing product and team, and a passionate community of valued customers,” … “We are excited to bring Trinity Hill back to a majority New Zealand ownership. We see significant opportunity in Trinity Hill and look forward to being part of its growth and development in the future.”

Founded in 1993, Trinity Hill is an iconic early pioneer of the famous Gimblett Gravels TM sub-region located in Hawkes Bay. It is said that great wine is made in the vineyard and Trinity Hill is renowned for producing distinctive wines of elegance and power that reflect the character of each vineyard site. Trinity Hill is the proud recipient of numerous global accolades, more recently for its Homage Syrah, “The wine by which all other top-tier New Zealand Syrah wines have always been judged.” Nick Stock for JAMES.SUCKLING.COM

The new owners are private investors who are passionate about the wine industry. Mitch Plaw and business partners Craig Turner, Mark Sandelin and Michael Nock will continue to operate the business and have extensive plans for future growth and expansion. All current staff remain and the group are very positive about the future outlook for Trinity Hill.

Today the new owners have paid tribute to Robyn and Robert Wilson who, as the founders of Trinity Hill, can take great credit for its success, the quality of its wines and its status as an iconic New Zealand winery.
