Johner Estate Vineyard and Winery is situated in Gladstone, the heart of New Zealand’s Wairarapa Wine RegionĀ  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!

Johner Estate New Zealand now has a new Winemaker – introducing Martin Bell, who came to us from the Martinborough region. Martin brings extensive experience from working in Harvests both overseas in Oregon and from winemaking in Marlborough. With a Master of Science degree majoring in Biotechnology, Martin will continue to produce the quality wine which Johner Estate is renowned for and to also bring his specialist skills which produce wines with elegance and flavour.

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.

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