Pioneering Family Winegrowers
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.
Aotea represents a selection of wines which the Seifried winemaking team consider to be the very best of the best. The fruit is harvested from single vineyard Estate grown vines. The wines offer texture while maintaining the varietal character of the grape - wines with depth and finesse.
‘Seifried’ is the premium Estate label, with the fruit for these wines grown on established vines, usually in excess of eight years of age. The Seifried wines are often blends of fruit grown on several of the Estate vineyards, enabling production of wines with fantastic depth and complexity.
Old Coach Road is a selection of wines expressive of the region in which they are grown. They are easy-drinking, perfect for any occasion, and almost any cuisine you can think of. Best enjoyed young, these wines show a brightness, with plenty of fruit concentration and focus.
Winemakers Collection is a small range which Seifried considers to be the pinnacle of the vintage. If the winemakers feel that a wine is something extraordinary, they will consider the small batch for this label so the varietals and the quantities available in this range vary each year.
Classic varietals made as we love to drink them! This is an easy-drinking range of wines that reflect the soils and sunshine in which they are grown. Juicy and fruit-driven, and a great addition to any gathering of friends.
