Nestled in the heart of Marlborough’s famous wine region resides one of New Zealand’s iconic family owned wine estates, where the entire process from vine to wine takes place organically, onsite. This is Hans Herzog.
Herzog is a family owned New Zealand winery and restaurant, supported by a unique team of individuals who all share the same values: a passion for wine and food, commitment to excellence and quality, and a love for the great New Zealand environment.
With some of the countries most treasured wines, delicious food, stunning grounds, a beautiful tasting room, extensive tours, Hans Herzog Estate is a must-visit for food and wine lovers!
As the name suggests, Hans Herzog’s roots lie in Switzerland where the family has grown wine since 1630.
There Hans and Therese owned the successful ‘Taggenberg’ wine estate and Michelin star rated restaurant in the Zurich wine country.
Looking for a new challenge, in the mid 1990’s they planted an 11.5 hectare vineyard bordering the Wairau River here in Marlborough and later moved the winery and Michelin-starred restaurant.
Here Hans, unfettered by commercial considerations, has adopted an experimentalist stance, cultivating an eclectic array of varieties, including Arneis, Barbera, Tempranillo and Zweigelt - as well as the more traditional Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
