As part of the “Bringing the Wine Geese Home” programme Farmgate Café, in association with Classic Drinks are delighted to welcome Anna Seifried of Seifried Wines, Nelson, New Zealand to guide us through a presentation and tasting of her wines, with a supper to match! The Seifried family have been making food-friendly award-winning wines since 1976, including rich full Chardonnays, fine Rieslings, zesty Sauvignon Blancs, warm Pinot Noirs and delicious dessert wines.

The Irish connection

Anna’s great grandfather, Thomas McCartney, was born in Donegal in 1857. In 1877, at the age of 20 he boarded the ‘Marlbourough’ leaving Ireland for New Zealand. Settling in the North Island he began farming, carried on by his children and grandchildren.
In 1973 Anna’s mother Agnes married Austrian born Hermann Seifried who shared a dream of making wines in New Zealand’s sunshine capital, Nelson. So, from very small and modest beginnings, Hermann and Agnes, grafting vines late into the night, began the now world famous Seifried Estate – a company devoted to sustainable winegrowing producing the very best wines Nelson has to offer. 136 years later Anna, great granddaughter of Thomas McCartney returns home for the Gathering to rekindle her Irish connection and to share her lively Sauvignon Blancs, warm plummy Pinot Noirs and intensely delicious dessert wines.
