From humble beginnings to a distinguished world wide brand, Konrad Wines have grown out of one man's love for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Family owned, operated and grown, hand crafted and estate bottled, Konrad hope that you get as much pleasure out of their wines as the happy team enjoy making them. After many years of international success, Konrad Wines remain fully owned by the Hengstler family, Konrad and Sigrun, their two sons, Conrad and Carlo. The Hengstlers originally migrated from Germany to Australia. While travelling through New Zealand, Konrad discovered Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and was immediately attracted to the distinctive character of wine. The Konrads established their first Marlborough plantings in 1996 and launched a range of wines from their forty hectares of vineyard in the Wairau and Waihopai Valleys.

Every year, after completion of harvest and fermentations, wines from the two unique climes are assembled into the most splendid vintages of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, a generous palette of fruit which aaffords an opportunity to maintain the same high quality and consistent quality of wines year after year. The grapes for the Gewurztraminer and the award winning Riesling are grown exclusively in the Waihopai Valley next to the estate office and family home. Quality is the absolute focus of Konrad and it starts in the vineyard where no corners are cut, it continues at the wineworks where an uncompromising standard of vinification is the key.

Fruit is sourced from organically farmed & BioGro certified grapes in the family owned Waihopai Valley Vineyard,fully certified BioGro status, grown without the use of synthetic, fungicides, insecticides or herbicides. The vines are cultivated under practices which force the roots to delve down into the soil to extract moisture and nutrients from the sub-soil, resulting in more complex flavours.

Being a family business, control over quality is completely hands on. Konrad Hengstler's philosophy is that the best fertilizer are the footprints of the farmer. Through every day personal involvement and a commitment to the fundamentals of natural winemaking, a tradition of the most exquisite vintages in Marlborough wine are achieved, each and every year.
