About Herzog

Hans Herzog Estate is one of New Zealand’s most treasured, truly artisan wineries, and Hans Herzog one of its most respected winemakers with more than 40 vintages of winegrowing under his belt.  

Settled in 1994 in the heart of Marlborough within the most beautiful Mediterranean gardens, Herzog’s offers casual luxury and indulgence for wine and food lovers.

The boutique estate and restaurant is now widely acclaimed as one of the best in New Zealand, boasting an impressive collection of 29 different grape varieties, each allocated a specific section of the vineyard where the soils compliment the grapes personality naturally.

The iconic gourmet restaurant was the first restaurant to be awarded 5 stars by Cuisine magazine and with the stylish Bistro and Cellar Door it has become a must visit destination.

The estate breathes the soul of Hans and Therese Herzog – the very passionate, hardworking and hands-on owners who embrace a holistic approach. They love to share the fruit of their labour with visitors and only ever see themselves as stewards of this very special place they call home.
