Description

Renowned sailors, the Butterworth Family is the new custodians of Julicher Vineyard, planted in the iconic soils of Te Muna.

The Julicher family – the founding custodians and the vineyard’s namesake were like a lot of the pioneering families in the New Zealand wine industry. Hard working immigrants who arrived with little and looked to make a big impact with their new life. What they lacked in knowledge they made up for with charm, bloody-mindedness and a lot of No.8 wire.

Larry McKenna and the Escarpment crew were planting their new vineyard at exactly the same time, so Wim took the watch and learn approach. Wim Julicher couldn’t help but notice how interested the top producers of the region were in purchasing his Pinot Noir fruit. Wim sold the entire first crop to local pioneers, Ata Rangi. As the second vintage rolled around Wim proposed to Ata Rangi that they make a few cases that he could label under his own name. Ata Rangi declined to set aside any of the top-quality fruit destined for their top wine, so Wim decided he’d keep the lot.
