Like the river that engraves the land, JULICHER, meaning ‘to seek the ideal’, has carved its own path to become a globally recognised, champion New Zealand wine producer of Pinot Noir. That path continues …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.

In tune with the Julicher philosophy that great wine is made in the vineyard, Martin is an attentive yet hands-off winemaker. “My role is to provide structure and depth to the wine through influence as opposed to intervention”. Allowing our Te Muna vineyard truly speak, Martin's influence has been garnered from an impressive array of qualifications - from Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry to Master of Science in Biotechnology and, once bitten by the wine bug, a Post Graduate Diploma in Wine Science. Martin’s rich experience also includes having worked alongside some of New Zealand’s most renowned producers.
