The Winecentre is leaving Greytown

It has been a wonderful opportunity to present and sell so many Wairarapa wines and local produce in this lovely historic building however, unfortunately, knowing that the winter months will be very quiet and fixed costs are very high we have decided on the closure of the Wine Centre in its current location.

At the same time, Johner Estate Winery, with their cellar door already open 7 days a week, are relishing the opportunity to create a ‘Mini Wine Centre’ at the end of Dakins Road  where you can enjoy the wines and the company of our charming  tasting staff.

By the middle of June, we are hoping to finish setting up a small version of the Wine Centre at Johner Estate. We are sure you will enjoy the authentic experience, being in the middle of a vineyard, and enjoy the wonderful wines of this lovely region.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Johner Estate   Open 7 days, 11 am to 4.30 pm

359 Dakins Road, RD7, Masterton (just 10 minutes drive from Masterton or Carterton, through lovely countryside beside the river)

(06) 370 8217

How to get there:

Coming from the South / Wellington, pass through Featherston, Greytown and Carterton. Turn right into East Taratahi Road Road 3 km before Masterton.
Coming from the North, pass through Masterton and turn left after 3 km into East Taratahi Road.

Follow the road until you can see the first Johner Estate sign.

The Martinborough Fair to Re-run!

After the ‘weather bomb’ back in March caused the cancellation of the scheduled fair day, organisers have made the unprecedented decision to hold a ‘re-run’ to take place Saturday 5th May. There is no better way to spend an Autumnal day than in the Wairarapa, so visitors make the most of your day out and after the mayhem of Martinborough, escape to the tranquility of Greytown and the wonderful Wairarapa Wine Centre. We will have plenty of the regions’ wines to taste, there’s no better way to unwind after a busy fair day. So keep your fingers crossed for fabulous weather, and we’ll see you soon.

Easter Opening Hours 2012

This Easter the wine centre will be open on Thursday 5th April, Saturday 7th April and Monday 9th April. Due to national trading regulations we are unable to open on Good Friday or Easter Sunday.


We have an Easter special, Johner Noble Cabernet Sauvignon. This sublime wine with unctious, sweet port flavours is the perfect match for those chocolate eggs, or a rich, chocolate cake, even hot cross buns! Normally we sell the 375ml for $22.00, but  we have a limited number of 750ml which we have at the bargain price of $38. Rememeber with the high residual sugar content of this wine, it will last for weeks in the fridge, if you can resist it that long! Happy Easter!
