In the heart of Marlborough, there is a slice of wine heaven known as Hans Herzog Estate...

The must visit destination for winelovers.

One of New Zealand’s most beloved wine estates lies idyllic on the banks of the Wairau River – the beautiful wine farm and home of Vignerons Therese & Hans Herzog. The highly admired small batch wines have stolen hearts of the most demanding wine lovers and sommeliers all over the world and there are good reasons for it. Everything here is about the true passion to craft the finest wines. Hans Herzog’s changed 500 years of winegrowing lineage to pursue his dream to find the perfect terroir to make outstanding wines able to stand amongst the world’s best.

Unfettered by commercial considerations, the couple has adopted an experimentalist stance, cultivating the most incredible, eclectic array of grape varieties exclusively from their ‘grand cru’ single vineyard - unique in the world. All of them highly acclaimed wines, rich in varietal character and showing off the coveted terroir. Such quality comes in small quantities but our Cellar Door shop holds the complete collection, including limtied releases and library wines.

We open our doors to a limited amount of walk-in wine lovers Monday to Friday from 9 to 5pm. Check out our carefully curated wine experiences and immerse yourself in a journey from vine to wine.



Beautiful setting. Knowledgeable staff. One can tell Mr Herzog is passionate and trying to do some unusual and exciting things. A great garden in courtyard presenting mini vines and interesting information about each grape type.


Wonderful wines, varied and unique for the region. They seem to be pushing the envelope on what can be planted successfully here, and doing it incredibly well. Pure craftsmanship.


Delicious food, perfect wine matching, outstanding service in a devine setting.

Will definitely be back. Thank you!


One of the best wines I ever had! The passion behind is incredible!

Lovely people, super wine, super food! 10 stars!
