Hans Connoisseur Club

Hans’ Connoisseurs Club – a means of bringing wine aficionados together and a way to thank you for supporting us throughout the year.

We do love the finer things in life and are happy to share it with our guests. The appreciation of fine wine, fresh food and art is a core part of our life’s philosophy and our estate with Winery, Gourmet Restaurant, Bistro and beautiful gardens, homage to all three. 

Hans sees himself as a Vigneron rather than a winemaker, knowing that it’s the hard yards and extremely low yields from exceptionally concentrated fruit which make some of New Zealand’s greatest wines. But maybe as important, he is a passionate wine enthusiast, collecting the finest wines around the world and setting the highest standards when it comes to his own wines. Quiet, modest and unfettered by commercial considerations, he has 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.

Like most acclaimed wineries, we do not enter our wines into wine shows or competitions. Our wines have found their way to ‘glory’ without the help of marketing but stolen the hearts of wine lovers all over the world purely for their outstanding quality. The classy understated label bears our name and family crest as creators of the wine and no award stickers will ever distract from its fine content! Our wines speak for themselves and their true ‘judges’ are you, the connoisseur.

Please see below for how you can become part of our club and receive additional rewards and benefits.
