"Outstanding winery regularly producing exemplary wines"
Lindsay McCall began his incredible wine journey in 1984 with the purchase of a derelict orchard in Paringa Road. Lindsay’s passion and fascination in wine began in the mid 1970’s and by the mid 1980’s he decided to follow his dream by establishing Paringa Estate.
In the first ten years progress was slow while Lindsay remained a fulltime school teacher. The first vines were planted in 1985 and by 1990 the “home vineyard” 10 acres (2.5 ha.) was fully planted. Lindsay became full-time in his business in 1996 allowing him to devote all his time and energy to growing his fruit and making great wine.
Paringa Estate’s first vintage was in 1988 with a mere 3 tonnes of fruit. By vintage 2000 production had grown to 78 tonnes of fruit, and by 2008 production had grown to 220 tonnes (16,000 cases). Paringa Estate has a strong presence in the Australian market and exports to the UK, Denmark, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, China and Taiwan.
The incredible list of awards that Paringa Estate has collected with their wines particularly over the past 10 years are testament to the quality of the wines and the passion of the people who have made them.
