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 250 hectares of vines, with their wines being sold in 22 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. 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. A family business, sharing their wines with the world. And home to the fabulous Sweet Agnes Riesling - New Zealand's most awarded dessert wine.

Old Coach Road 2015 Sauvignon Blanc for NZ $13. Great value for a very tasty wine. BTW is "tasty" a wine description? Also very good Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and an interesting red wine made from Zweigelt grapes. They do sell in US. Have yet to find their distributor.

The winery runs many mainstream grapes, but also produces some really rare types of wines, such as Zweigelt, Gruner Veltliner and Wurzer. The quality is good, but it is the attraction of the rare varieties that really acts like a magnet to this winery.

Excellent food and wine, and the dessert was amazing. Martin our waiter was awesome. As we were out for my daughters 30th birthday he brought a beautiful vase of roses for our table, took some snaps for us and his advice on the menu was perfect. The best value for money we have had in Nelson.

Unlike the other vineyards we visited last weekend, this was easy to get to - but sadly it was a distant third on our ratings list. The garden was very pleasant but the food looked quite average. The restaurant decor was a little odd and unappealing. The wine tasting cost $6 per person which was a new thing for us.... More

We stopped here for s look and ended up spending several hours relaxing in the garden over a couple of wines and a huge antipasto platter which proved too much for the two of us to best. Free wine tastings if you go on to purchase a bottle. Great food, great location.
