Chris and Jackie Paddon started Paddons Paddock Winery in 2014, when they planted their first set of Pinot Noir vines in our beautiful Wanaka winery. This region is well-known for Pinots, and they wanted to make the best Central Otago Pinot Noir they possibly could. They wanted all of their wines to be ready to consume and sell at the same time, so a year later, they planted
our white varieties.
Pinot Noir ages for a year in barrels, then it sits in a bottle for 6 months before it’s ready to consume. The white wines, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Gris and chardonnay, are ready between 5 and 9 months from harvest.
