Picardy is one of Australia’s leading premium boutique wine producers, established in 1993 in the Pemberton region of Western Australia. Picardy produces Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Merlot/Cabernet varieties. All wines bearing thePicardy label are entirely from our single vineyard property in Pemberton. Label integrity is of the utmost importance to the Pannell Family.
Great wines are made in the vineyard. Pemberton is a tranquil and pristine backdrop to Picardy. Picardy is all dry grown, hand-picked, estate grown and family run, with 3 generations of the Pannell family living on the property.
Picardy is owned and operated by Bill, Sandra, and Dan Pannell. Bill and Sandra were pioneers of the Margaret River region, establishing Moss Wood vineyard and winery in 1969. Moss Wood went on to be a major driving force in establishing Margaret River as one of Australia’s important growing regions. Dan has grown up in the wine industry and completed a Bachelors of Science (Oenology) at The University Of Adelaide.
Picardy was named after a region east of Paris. A wine merchant and family friend noted that many of the great wines and wine regions have names beginning with the letter “P”. Pomerol, Petrus, Pauillac and Pommard are examples. Picardy strives to continue this tradition of wine making quality and excellence.
