Our Story

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.

The Sights and Sounds of the Nelson Region

Sun and blue skies all year round, nearby mountains (often snow-capped), lakes and forests,
and the most beautiful winemaking region in New Zealand - this is Nelson.

The cool inviting waters of Tasman Bay, surrounded by golden sandy beaches and 
native bush as a backdrop - this is Nelson.  

Peaceful frosty winters, long dry summers, cool autumn nights combined with some of the 
highest sunshine hours in New Zealand - this is Nelson.  

Artisans perfecting their crafts, from glass blowing and painting, to jewellery making, sculpting, 
brewing and of course, winemaking. A region brimming with inspiring talent - this is Nelson. 

A feast of the freshest foods including scallops, snapper, strawberries, boysenberries, 
raspberries, kiwifruit, apples, pears, olives, hops and truffles all growing in abundance. 
The food scene is dynamic and exciting - this is Nelson.
