Nicol’s Paddock

Nicol’s Paddock

Nicol’s Paddock’s vines were planted in 1997, in the rich limestone soil of Waurn Ponds on the edge of Geelong. 2001 marked Nicol’s Paddock’s first vintage. Nicol’s Paddock is family owned operated, specializing in Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Situated on the rolling hills beside the Geelong Ring Road in Waurn Ponds, Nicol’s Paddock is a family owned & operated Winery & Food & Wine Bar.  Come and enjoy delicious local seasonal sharing dishes and snacks, complimented beautifully by Nicol’s Paddock wines, in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, overlooking the vineyard.   Our drinks list also includes an excellent range of other local wines, beers and ciders.

Nicol’s Paddock produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz and our Cellar Door is open for tastings an sales at the same times as the Food & Wine Bar – Thursdays to Sundays. Please visit more information.
