BELL HILL VINEYARD is a highly personal undertaking by Marcel Giesen and Sherwyn Veldhuizen to actualise the potentials of a very unique terroir in North Canterbury. Through their immaculate biodynamic limestone-based ultra-high density vineyards, the couple has been producing some of the most spellbinding pinot noir and chardonnay wines the modern world has ever seen. Their superlative quality as well as the very limited quantities produced have stoked the passion of growing throng of discerning fine wine lovers into an endless frenzy.

Established in 1997, Bell Hill Vineyard in the Weka Pass, North Canterbury, is an area layered with history. Bell Hill itself, so named for its bell-like shape on its southern side, was first surveyed in 1917 by Charles Trounce who went on to establish a lime quarry that operated until the late 1930s.

However the history of the area goes back much further than that. Maori first explored Weka Pass around 1000 years ago, when the area was still forested and rich in birdlife. A large overhanging limestone shelter in the pass was used as a temporary overnight camp and early Maori rock art decorates its walls.

The same unique, lime-rich soil that has safeguarded a snapshot of the early North Canterbury environment now nurtures the vines of Bell Hill Vineyard, helping to form the distinct character of Bell Hill’s acclaimed Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
