From the beautiful Waimea Plains come the inspired and innovative wines of the South Island’s oldest family winery, Seifried Estate. Harvested from Estate grown, ‘Sustainably Accredited’ vineyards scattered throughout the Nelson region, this is a winery with a focus and passion for beautifully crafted wines.

From humble beginnings in the Moutere Valley near Nelson in 1973, Seifried Estate has grown to become synonymous with sustainability, quality, innovation and family values. The family business has grown and now farms over 325 hectares of vines, with their wines being sold in 25 countries, including having established themselves as a familiar and favoured brand in New Zealand. A leading producer of Nelson Sauvignon Blanc, Seifried has also gained a reputation for interesting and unusual varieties, including Grüner Veltliner, Würzer and Zweigelt – paying homage to Hermann’s Austrian heritage.

The Seifried Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2019 was awarded ‘Champion Sauvignon Blanc’, as well as ‘Champion White Wine’ at the NZ Wine of the Year competition in November 2019 solidifying the company’s reputation for high quality Sauvignon Blanc producers.

In September 2014, Hermann and Agnes were acknowledged for their tremendous contribution to New Zealand wine and inducted as Fellows of New Zealand Winegrowers. They made history as the first husband and wife team to be recognised and it was also the first time a woman has been honoured.

The passion has been passed on with all three of the Seifried children, now home and working in the company. Each brings experience and knowledge gained in various roles around the world. The grandchildren have also become regulars at the winery, eager to help and get their hands (and feet!) dirty, and follow in “Opa and Nana’s” footsteps.
