Wer sind Sie?

Heidi & Werner Pluss, originally from Switzerland, fell in love with New Zealand on a holiday and bought The Peppertree some 19 years ago, a gracious family homestead with a history that goes back to the early 1900’s. With Heidi’s background in hotel management and catering in Switzerland and Werner’s keen business sense, The Peppertree fulfilled their dream of owning an exclusive accommodation, offering their guests 5-star service in relaxing and comfortable surroundings within the famous Marlborough wine region. Since living in New Zealand Werner has learned the craft of viticulture and has become a passionate wine maker.
