The Seifried story began in 1973 when Austrian born Hermann Seifried and his New Zealand wife Agnes had a dream of making wines in New Zealand’s sunshine capital – Nelson. From very small and modest beginnings when Hermann and Agnes grafted the vines late into the night, to today when all three Seifried ‘children’ have returned home to play their part in growing the family business, Seifried Estate is a company devoted to sustainable winegrowing and producing the very best Nelson has to offer.
Nelson is at the top of the South Island, New Zealand. It is one of the country's top holiday destinations and with over 2,500 hours of sunshine each year, it is the sunniest place in New Zealand. Diverse coastlines and bush combined with the colourful array of creative characters in the region make it a beautiful place to call home. The cool inviting waters of Tasman Bay are surrounded by golden sand and native bush, with snow covered mountains (in the winter) as a backdrop.
