The Largest Family Owned and Operated Winery in Nelson NZ Aims to Grow Its Sustainable Brand in the U.S. Market
August 1, 2023; Lyndhurst, NJ; Worldwide Libations announced today a new partnership with Seifried Estate Winery of Nelson, New Zealand to grow the market penetration across the U.S. with their critically acclaimed wines. The portfolio offers exceptional quality sustainably accredited, estate grown and bottled New Zealand wines.
The Seifried family’s winemaking story begins in 1973, when Austrian born Hermann Seifried and his New Zealand wife Agnes, were the first to plant near Nelson, on the northern shores of New Zealand’s South Island. In 1976 they made their first wine, and today, fifty years since it all began, the family business includes the second generation, Heidi, Chris and Anna, all involved in the daily operations of the winery.
Seifried Estate was an early adopter of ‘Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand’ auditing both vineyards and winery since the mid 90’s. The family farms over 800 acres across ten sustainably accredited vineyards scattered throughout the Nelson region, with their wines being distributed in 25 countries around the globe.
The range consists of two distinct styles of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from the family’s Seifried and Old Coach Road wine brands. All the wines are available in 750ml format. Old Coach Road Sauvignon Blanc and Old Coach Road Pinot Noir will retail for $15 and $20 respectively; The Seifried Sauvignon Blanc for $20 and Seifried Pinot Noir for $25.
With New Zealand wine exports to the US reaching record highs, the interest and excitement for New Zealand wine has never been stronger.
