Settled in 1994 in the heart of Marlborough within the most beautiful gardens Herzog’s offers casual luxury and indulgence for food and wine lovers. Unfettered by commercial considerations, the Herzog’s have adopted an experimentalist stance, cultivating an eclectic array of grape varieties all of them highly acclaimed wines rich in varietal character showing off the covetous terroir. The Estate’s iconic Gourmet Restaurant, casual Bistro, stylish Cellar Door and lovely Vineyard Cottage oozes European elegance and together with vivacious Therese’s and her team warm hospitality it really is a must visit destination!

Nice atmosphere until a large table of 12 sat alongside us in a small room off the main room. Very hard to have table conversation after that. The fire was on which was nice, but my clothes ended up smelling of smoke so the ventilation needed to be better.
The food was absolutely delicious! The taste was superb. Some really lovely wines.

I went for wine tasting. There is an incredible variety of grapes for what is a small estate, including some I had never heard of before. Outstanding wines. The tasting size was generous too.
Excellent service (there was no-one else there at the time).
No pressure to buy but I recommend you do!

Had been for a wine tasting that afternoon. Decided to return for dinner. Entree was above average in content and presentation. Mains were small but tasty. Of the two dessert selections one was not available. Bread came out between entree and main. Had to ask for a pepper grinder. Unhappily paid $14.50 for 150ml of wine then found our tap water on the wine list was in fact bottled still water at $12 which was brought out befors we had been given the wine list. Lesson learnt.

Magical place, romantic environment, professional service, perfect serving timing, good coordination/communication between the waitress and the kitchen ( we asked for few ingredients change at the very last minute before our table was served, and everything went extremely smoothly ).
Excellent food: we ordered a cheese selection as entré and then the 4 of us opted for a different main course. Each of us was satisfied ( meet cooked as asked, fish tender and juicy, pasta made us feeling to be back in Italy, as well as the risotto ).
Each plate can stand for a wine selection, well explained and supported by the matre available by our request.
Vegetable grown in their property, authentically organic.
The restaurant offers inside and outside options, giving the chance to enjoy the huge green park available.
Parking space within the property.
Booking essential to assure your table choice on time!
Hidden in the heart of Renwick vineyards, its a rare pearl that deserve to be visited.
Prices above the average, but perfectly matching the overall quality.

My husband and I and friends from Austraia travelled to this winery for the tour, tasting and lunch and we were not disappointed. Therese who conducted the tour was passionate and knowledgeable giving us a great overview and understanding of the wines, history and production. The food at lunch was very tasty enjoyed in a beautiful setting.
