ORANGE F.O.O.D WEEK
Patina is a family-owned estate nestled in the rich volcanic slopes of Mt Canobolas near Orange, New South Wales. Owner and winemaker, Gerald Naef, blends science and technology with age-old tradition to create complex flavours forged by the elements of nature.
The Patina vineyard is at 930 metres. In addition it is cooled by the air that drains down the valleys from Mt Canobolas which stands 1395 metres high. This makes Patina a cool site in a cool climate region and is prone to occasional frost.
His Patina Wine represents the complexity and elegance of cool climate wine defined by nature and his personal signature.
