Wine Lover's Retreat Amidst the Vines

The beauty and allure of the Marlborough Wine country continues long after the sun has set, and the tasting room doors have closed. There is something magical about sleeping in serenity, surrounded by grapevines, olive trees, and overflowing gardens with only the sounds of nature echoing in the background. 

Our lovingly restored historic workers' cottage, originally refurbished during the Herzog’s transcontinental wine journey between Switzerland and Marlborough, is now a treasured hideaway awaiting wine lovers from around the globe. Revel in relaxed luxury within your private garden sanctuary, with sweeping vistas over the vineyard to the mountains beyond. As the sun dips below the horizon, toast to the moment with a glass of wine in your very own exclusive lounge setting.

A word from our Guests


Absolutely exquisite! This cottage is absolutely stunning. Would highly recommend, so much character and finesse, from all the little details (high end linen, bath robes, coffee, arrange of tea, fresh flowers). Beautiful interior design. The team at Herzog were so friendly and welcoming. We made the most of using the bikes they had on offer to pop around to the local vineyards. Highly recommend the breakfast option, delicious! We hope to return in the near future!


We enjoyed a fabulous night in the Rose Cottage and a most excellent dinner in the restaurant. The Cottage is a very special experience and I highly recommend both it and the restaurant. The Herzogs are lovely hosts, the staff are welcoming and attentive, the food is divine and the wines even better.


A wonderful 2 nights in the most delightful "Rose Cottage", an idyllic setting amongst the vines, a short walk from the winery and family home, we enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting set in the garden in late afternoon with dappled sun shining through, little fantails hopping from tree to tree, like being in a Disney movie! The cottage itself was immaculate with many antique and original features, and the rooms were serviced beautifully, indeed we enjoyed a "Vineyard Platter" on our deck one evening and of course the wine. Super location, we loved it!!


Flanked by vines on all sides, the Hans Herzog Vineyard cottage is about as Marlborough as you can get. With a complimentary tasting included with the stay, the Wairau River running along the edge of the property and bikes on-hand for gentle exploring, you can get the full Marlborough experience without even leaving the grounds.
