Har and Sophie Eradus immigrated from Holland in the year 1982 along with their kids and settled in Auckland where they started a flower shop. After 20 years in the business, they decided to sell the shop and set up a semi - retirement business in New Zealand. Their search led them to a vineyard in the beautiful Awatere Valley in Marlborough and this is where Eradus Wines was born. In the year 2004, Michael and Hanna took over their parents’ estate and carried on their legacy of producing great wines. Their contributions led to Awatere Valley being recognized as the production house of some of the most beloved Sauvignon Blanc from NZ.
