Obsidian, Miro and The Hay Paddock are proud to have produced multiple trophy-winning wines in recent years, and have created the Onetangi Wine “Trophy Trail”. You can enter a beautiful private walkway through olive groves and vines in the heart of the Onetangi valley. This walk connects together these three neighbouring vineyards. The walk takes approximately 30 minutes.

The Hay Paddock - entry and parking at  451B Seaview Road

Vineyards are working farm environments, and you are asked to respect grapevines, plants, machinery and netting. Listen and watch out for tractors, sprayers, mowers, farm bikes or any other vehicles.
