Patina has a boutique range of Chardonnay, Riesling, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Merlot, Sticky Tea Riesling and Liqueur Tawny.
The high altitude and volcanic soils enables the vinification of cool climate wines that exemplify finesse, tightness and slow development.
As a boutique winemaker Gerald Naef produces wines that are approachable and believes the wines should be released after they have achieved complexity and are a good complement to food.
CELLAR DOOR TASTINGS
We are hosting wine tasting experiences at our Cellar Door. Due to Covid19, these are seated, guided tastings, with bookings essential.
PICNICS & LAWN GAMES IN THE GARDENS – WITH A TWIST
The Orange Wine Festival now stretches the entire month of October. We normally provide lawn games for picnickers which gives us a good deal of satisfaction watching visitors enjoying themselves. However, Covid has changed all that as we cannot sterilise the games between each group.
So, this year it is BYO games as well as BYO Picnic. You are welcome to buy bottles of wine and have your own self-guided tasting from the Patina selection as you picnic. Just remember that it is a Covid requirement for everyone to be seated while consuming alcohol.
If you wish to have a Tasting at the Cellar Door while enjoying the picnic you need to book online in advance for a Tasting place to be guaranteed. We can only accommodate a limited number of people in Cellar Door whilst remaining Covid compliant. Be sure and read the rest of the requirements whilst on the booking website. We hope you have a most enjoyable day at Patina.
