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. 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!

Here in New Zealand our wine is made by Raphael Burki, who has also been making wine in his native Switzerland and he brings with him extensive winemaking skills, producing elegant wines.

The 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.

Our philosophy is to nurture both our land and our people, to produce  memorable wines that express a complex personality.
