View Ellero website
A short drive from the town of Cromwell Central Otago you will find the spectacular site of Ellero Wines. The Organically grown Pisa Terrace Vineyards are set high up on a hill with the rugged beauty of snow capped mountains in the background. The “Terraces are an island like vista” offering well needed air drainage on its slopes which helps to protect the vines from frost during those bitterly cold spring mornings.
It’s all about the site and the soil profiles that make these truly outstanding wines. The land at Ellero is made up of rocks and gravel of decomposed Schist and Quartz, which provide the vines with the drainage they need to survive.
Ellero are true artisan wine producers dedicated to making wines that reflect the individuality of the vineyard sites.
Ellero’s devotion to organic farming is evident not only from the 7 hectares of vineyards planted and also the 300 corn and tomato plants situated on the south side of the vineyard.
Pinot Noir and Riesling are produced in very small quantities. The wines are carefully made showing why organically grown vineyard practises are producing some exceptional wines from this region.
