New lease of life for an old Kiwi winery

One of Hawke’s Bay’s best known wineries has new owners and is once again entirely a New Zealand owned company.
Mitch Plaw, director and one of the new Trinity Hill owners says he sees significant opportunities to grow Trinity Hill and looks forward to being part of its growth and development in the future.”
The Hawke’s Bay based winery was founded in 1993 and was one of the best known early pioneers of wines made made from grapes grown on the now well known Gimblett Gravels sub-region.
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 plans for significant future growth and expansion. All of the winery’s current staff remain and members of the group say they feel more positive about the future of Trinity Hill than they have for years. Win win.
