Arriving in Marlborough one feels like they have arrived in the epi-centre of New Zealand wine. Every road in every direction seems to be flanked by vineyards and signs for wineries to visit. And just as there are plenty of great cellar doors to visit, there is also an excellent selection of restaurants that will typically focus on the wines of Marlborough.
Herzog is acknowledged to have one of the premier restaurants in Marlborough. An award winning global team of Master Chef’s will spoil you with delicious market fresh cuisine, served in the most decadent environment with personal service to make you feel totally pampered. You choose, from the totally indulgent famous ‘Herzog Degustation Menu’ 5 or 3 course menu or the sensational Herzog a la carte dishes. You can also choose to have your dishes paired with their handcrafted wines to offer the perfect match.
Alternatively experience the Herzog Cellar Door Bistro. Relax in their Mediterranean gardens with views of the vineyard while experiencing casual lunchtime cuisine. The same top chefs, but with everyday prices means the bistro is a favourite with tourists and locals.
