What's special about this winery?

Seifried estate Winery

The Seifried family have been making stylish food-friendly wines since 1976. The range includes rich full Chardonnays, fine floral Rieslings, lively Sauvignon Blancs, warm plummy Pinot Noirs and intensely delicious dessert wines.

Sun and blue skies all year round, nearby mountains (often snow capped), lakes, forests and beaches, the most beautiful winemaking region in New Zealand - this is Nelson. Still frosty winters, long dry summers, cool autumn nights combined with the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand - this is Nelson.

Pristine conditions, along with specially selected north facing vineyard sites, offer a range of soils from free draining gravels to heavy alluvial clays and a climate tailor-made for growing richly varietal, elegant wines. 

Nelson is located at the top of New Zealand’s South Island and is surrounded by mountains to the east, west and south, while the Tasman Sea is to the north. The constant sea breezes give a moderated temperate climate throughout the year. Enjoying an average of 2,700 hours of sunshine per year, Nelson is often referred to as the ‘Sunshine Capital of New Zealand’.

Nelson's annual rainfall is generally concentrated in the winter months following a dry autumn, thus allowing the grapes optimal ripening conditions and low disease pressure. Our warm days and cool nights during the critical summer and autumn ripening period help produce wines with intense varietal characters and first class aromas. Winter ground frosts of down to -10°C are followed by sunny pleasant blue sky days while summer generally reaches 30°C on hot days.

As the northern hemisphere winter subsides, we prepare for the grape harvest in Nelson, New Zealand.  Vintage (harvest) extends from late March through until early May with the grapes being picked at the peak of their ripeness.

Selection of premium new local vineyard sites continues to provide us with exciting opportunities and possibilities. From nursery through to vineyard, each site has been chosen and developed with varieties and clones most suited to the particular location. With the majority of fruit being Estate grown, we feel this ensures complete control over all areas of the grape production including clone selection, irrigation, disease management, yield and fruit quality. Today, we harvest from six Estate producing vineyards (identified by three main soil types) across the Nelson region.
