About Baron Herzog
Look closely at the Herzog label and you can see the drive, the passion, and the story of nine generations who brought our family to where it is today. From the courts of Kaiser Franz Joseph of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, to a Europe torn by war, to the streets of New York City, to the vineyards of California, the Herzog story is one of a family’s enduring commitment to their Jewish identity and their belief in the promise of America.
Our story begins with Rabbi Menachem Herzog in the early 19th century in the town of Vrbové in the Trnava Region of Slovakia, where he created the family’s distillery, winery and brewery, which would sustain the family for the next century and beyond. The Austro-Hungarian Empire grew with great innovation and became a powerful world force. Emperor Frans-Josef was so impressed with the Herzog wines, that he dubbed Phillip Herzog a baron and asked the Herzog family to produce wine for the royal court.
Through decades of dedication, the success of the Herzog winery grew, bottling carefully crafted wines, beers, and spirits. In the town of Vrbové, many of the townspeople proudly worked for this family and saw them as a pillar in the community.
