Paul Halford | Owner & Director
An Auckland native, Paul has shared living between Auckland and Central Otago for the last 20 plus years; the perfect set-up for his action packed life! Paul’s interests include skiing, flying helicopters, fishing, classic car collecting and motor racing. He can often be seen flying the Rockburn flag campaigning in one of his two Rockburn branded race cars – a 2003 Maserati Cambiocorsa Trofeo and a 911 Porsche RS.
Paul’s involvement in Rockburn was the result of a combination of his love of the landscapes of Central Otago and his passion for Pinot Noir, which was developed while vacationing in Burgundy, France. Paul’s early career was in packaging and over time he founded and owned successful businesses in this sector. He sold all interests in these in 2004 to focus on being a Vigneron, and has bought his considerable expertise in the finance and marketing arenas to Rockburn.
Paul is married to Glenys and they have 3 daughters.
