Hans Herzog Estate

One of the worlds most unique vineyards...

About the winery
Hans Herzog. More than just an uber-selective vineyard. A luxurious wine country estate woven into nature. The estate breathes the soul of Hans and Therese Herzog, the passionate, hardworking and hands down owner who embrace a holistic approach to farming. They love to share the fruit of their labour with visitors but ever only see themselves as stewards of this very special place they call home. Whilst Hans is looking after the wines and the vineyard, Therese is running the hospitality side of their Estate with a unique team of individuals who share the same values, a passion for wine and food and a commitment to excellence and quality.

History & Geography
The Herzog’s are Winegrowers since the beginning of the 16th Century, their hillside vineyards towering over Switzerland’s Rhine river. Descendant Hans liked to push the boundaries, challenging the way things were done. In the 80s, rebelling against the restricting Swiss wine law, he successfully plants unauthorized varietals such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon to his Pinot Noir, instead of the uninspiring Muller Thurgau. In the end, the government liberalised the planting restriction on grape varieties, but the challenging Swiss climate remained and so did Hans’ dream to find the perfect terroir to make truly outstanding wines, able to stand amongst the world’s best.
