Himmelsfeld Vineyard

Quintessentially New Zealand in flavour, the surrounding countryside is punctuated by rolling paddocks and trees and surprisingly very few vines. That’s because the vineyard is on another part of this working farm. The cellar door or “wine loft” is based on an old workman’s cottage, so is rustic and welcoming.

Things To Know
Owner Beth Eggers bought the property in 1991 and has planted a small portion in grapes, while the rest is dedicated to apples and sheep. She is producing cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, viognier and chardonnay.

Our Pick
The sauvignon blanc is vibrant and fruity, and very much influenced by the Moutere clays.

Himmelsfeld often has concerts and celebrations on site. Check the website for details.
