Schubert Wines

Kai Schubert instructed New Zealand Immigration Concepts with his business investor case.

Upon approval in 1998 he established Schubert Wines in Martinborough /Wairarapa . SCHUBERT'S philosophy is to craft wines of uncompromising quality that would stand out alongside the finest in the world. 14 hectares of wines are closely planted in the traditional, European style and the unique climate produces low yields.

As a result they have been quick to capture the attention of connoisseurs and critics alike for their alluring, internationally award winning wines of outstanding character, complexity, balance and grace. 90%, the majority of the production, is exported to currently 36 countries.

Heck German Gourmet Butchery 

Ulrich Heck, the proprietor and his family obtained Permanent Residence in New Zealand with the assistance of New Zealand Immigration Concepts.

In 2006 Ulrich established Heck German Smallgoods, a German gourmet butchery. 

Based on original German recipes, enhanced and perfected by the Heck butcher family over the last 150 years, they produce and sell authentic German and European quality smallgoods, sausages, salamis, beersticks and specially cooked and smoked meats.

The business has gone from strength to strength and goods are now shipped to retailers and customers all over New Zealand.

 Uli tells his success story:

"My family, the Hecks, have a proud tradition in the art of butchery. It started in the 1850s as a butchery and restaurant in the southern German town of Diedesheim. Ever since, my family developed new and perfected traditional German sausage recipes and handed them down from generation to generation. What has also been passed on was the passion to the German way of sausage making.

In 1925 my grandfather Robert Heck moved to Heidelberg, one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. He started his own butchery shop, then leaving the prospering business to my father Günter Heck in 1960. While my two brothers left the family trade, I decided to stay, following my ancestors’ tradition in the German butcher business.

My wife and I always had the urge to live in another country. Driven by our “wanderlust”, we took the challenge in 2004 and moved to beautiful New Zealand with our two young sons.

Settling in Christchurch we noticed the demand for quality sausages and smallgoods. Aiming to bring the best of Germany’s authentic art of butchery and sausage making to our new environment, we opened ‘Heck German Smallgoods Ltd’ in 2006. We handpicked Canterbury farmers to supply us with premium New Zealand meats, ensuring only the very best ingredients will be used in our products.

We are continuously upgrading our equipment and expanding the product range, while keeping the spirit of a family operation, where every single item is passionately handmade, to turn a simple meal into a culinary delight."
