About Bell Hill

Bell Hill

Established by Marcel Giesen and Sherwyn Veldhuizen in 1997, Bell Hill Vineyard in the Weka Pass, North Canterbury, is an area layered with history. In May 2001 a large fossil deposit was discovered in an area where the stream crosses a patch of soft clay. The clay is thixotropic, which means that the more an animal struggles in it, the softer and stickier it becomes. The high lime (carbonate) content of the clay also helped preserve the bones, many of which are between 1000-2000 years old. The remains of 19 species of native bird have been identified in the deposit, including the all four of the species of moa present in the lowlands of Canterbury (the Giant Moa, the Eastern Moa, the Stout-legged Moa and the Heavy-footed Moa). The same unique, lime-rich soil now nurtures the vines of Bell Hill Vineyard, helping to form the distinct character of Bell Hill’s acclaimed Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Visit the Bell Hill Website
