Price by negotiation
- 27.83ha Land
Established in 2001, after a wide search Karl Johner purchased 27.826 hectares on the banks of the Ruamahanga River, planted Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and smaller parcels of Chardonnay, Riesling, Viognier, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Award winning wines are distributed throughout New Zealand and to established export markets in Europe and Asia. Completely self-sufficient - from growing to vinification, bottling, labelling and selling - every process is overseen at the Winery and Vineyard. At Johner Estate, with its free draining alluvial soil - perfect for growing grapes - the most ecologically sound methods are adhered to. From the Vineyard through to the Cellar Door, Johner Estate is the complete package with the ability for the owner to control the whole process and timing of production offering flexibility to adjust to changing markets and tastes. With scope to increase plantings and production with strong consents and infrastructure, Johner Estate represents a unique opportunity to purchase a leading New Zealand Winery and Vineyard with a strong national presence coupled with excellent export markets. The location lends itself to create a tourism destination with the picturesque Ruamahanga River alongside. Superbly situated in the heart of the Wairarapa viticulture scene and handy to Wellington Port, Johner Estate is a rare opportunity to purchase in a superb location.
