Johner Estate Vineyard and Winery is situated in Gladstone, the heart of New Zealand’s Wairarapa Wine Region  and is a boutique, hands-on, family owned winery. Karl Johner started planting the vineyard in 2001, transforming what was leased farmland into a 14 Ha vineyard of Pinot Noir as well as many other grape varieties which grow well in the Gladstone area.

The Johner Family also own a winery in Germany and they import many of our New Zealand wines to be distributed throughout Europe and sold through their Cellar Door – our New Zealand wine is very popular over there! Karl is also the Chief Winemaker for Johner Estate in New Zealand.

Our picturesque vineyard follows the course of the ancient Ruamahanga River, and is set in a beautiful and idyllic setting. Free draining alluvial soils and a cool but dry climate, create the setting for the story that is our wine.
