Description

Himmelsfeld Vineyard was established in 1991 by Beth Eggers. It is nestled in the heart of the picturesque Upper Moutere. This boutique vineyard is one of the smallest in the country, which allows for the dedicated hands-on management that Himmelsfeld prides itself on. The vineyard was planted out in one acre each of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

In 2006 one acre of Viognier was planted, also high on the clay hill-top.The site of the vineyard was chosen for its north-west facing and somewhat barren clay hill top, which has allowed Himmelsfeld to work to traditional vine cultivation methods. The site was gently terraced to capture all-day Nelson sun, and to facilitate exposure to ventilation to minimize disease risk. Himmelsfeld is working towards a “clean green” philosophy; part of this is using Romney sheep for weed control.
