History & Geography
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. Wines crafted from a truly passionate family of winemakers.Nelson is located at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. It is one of the country's top holiday destinations with three national parks, fabulous golden sand beaches, alpine lakes, and surrounded on three sides by mountains, its beauty is hard to beat. With over 2,400 hours of sunshine every year, the diverse coastlines, native bush and array of creative colourful characters adds up to a beautiful place to call home.
