Boutique Wine Venue

Written by Margo Berryman

Paddons Paddock Winery, a family run vineyard in Wānaka is attracting a steady stream of visitors to its boutique cellar door for wine tastings and larger events.

The business is operated by Chris and Jackie Paddon who started out with the first plantings of Pinot Noir vines in 2014 at their vineyard located on the Wanaka – Luggate Highway.  

Today the winery produces white wine varieties such as Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Gris, Rose and Chardonnay alongside Pinot Noir.

“Our gorgeous winery venue has a tasting room and bar with a spacious outdoor area ,” says Jackie.

“It is an ideal spot to sample our wines but also to host gatherings such as birthdays, parties, friend groups, private meetings, clubs and even weddings. The outdoor area overlooks the vineyard and surrounding mountains with plenty of on-site parking available.”

Owner – Jackie Paddon

Paddons Paddock Winery is open Thursday until Sunday from 12.00pm until 5.30pm or later on request. Bookings for groups or events can be made online at www.paddonspaddock.co.nz
