Julicher Estate was born in 1996, when Wim Julicher fell in love with the secret valley of Martinborough, Te Muna.

Carved thousands of years ago, by the Huangarua river of Martinborough, Te Muna valley is notable for its deep, mineral-rich, alluvial gravels. These soils aligned with the warm days, cool nights and low rainfall of the region, result in the outstanding Pinot Noir wines that Martinborough is valued for.

Planting vines and an olive grove on 50 acres of bare farmland, Wim sought to realise a dream. Meaning “to seek the ideal” and having created a truly idyllic spot, it was fitting that the name the Estate itself, would be Julicher.

Since establishment 20 years ago,  Julicher Estate wines have consistently won gold medals and trophies around the globe. Maintaining a hands-on approach, Julicher Estate is rated as one of the top 50 wine producers of New Zealand and has established strong distribution and export markets throughout Asia and Europe.


Julicher Estate is located in the south-east corner of the North Island region of Wairarapa.

Situated in the Te Muna valley, five kilometres from the Martinborough Township, the vineyard is part of a region that is internationally accredited for producing New Zealand’s most outstanding Pinot Noir.

Approximately one hour’s drive from the capital city of Wellington, the area is known for low rainfall, warm days and cool nights. Conditions perfectly balance to produce New Zealand Pinot Noir wines of exceptional elegance, structure and savoury complexity.

Te Muna Valley
‘Te Muna’ means ‘secret place’. First planted in 1996, and an extension of Martinborough’s river terraces, the Te Muna terraces were carved by the path of the Huangarua River. When the river retreated to its present course a few thousand years ago, the free draining, alluvial deposits left behind were discovered as exceptionally suited to viticulture.

Stony and rich in minerals, at a slightly higher altitude than Martinborough itself, Te Muna valley enjoys a slightly cooler season. With the lowest rainfall of New Zealand’s North Island, this cool but dry micro-climate provides ideal ripening conditions. As such, this micro-region of Martinborough is producing outstanding New Zealand  Pinot Noir and other noble varietals.

Julicher Estate is an accredited Sustainable Winegrowing vineyard, verifying our commitment to environmentally responsible wine production.

Forever seeking the ideal, we use organic practices wherever we can. Working with naturally derived resources. organic based fertilisers made from fish, seaweed or compost, rather than synthetic chemicals are used. Pest and disease sprays are drawn from natural ingredients. After pruning, canes are mulched and left to compost, providing valuable nutrients to the soil.

As our place for our time on earth, we take seriously our commitment to preserve that ideal for those future generations who may equally seek it.
