Behn Payten spent a number of years working as a winemaker at Punt Road, even working on some of the Dalwhinnie wines that we import to K&L, and his partner Troy Jones works in sales while managing time over at Four Pillars, one of the best gin distilleries in the world. Together they make up the formidable team of Payten & Jones, a duo out of Healesville making small production wines from their own estate vineyard and neighboring sites. Behn's dad Peter, a viticulturist and consultant in the Yarra Valley, also helps with the project, working to source additional fruit beyond the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay sites on Behn's property. Having worked at Botobolar in the early eighties, Peter Payten had an early role in organic farming in the Yarra. Botobolar was the first organic vineyard in all of Australia when it was founded in the seventies, and his experience there has proved valuable to those producers who continue to move away from pesticides and other chemicals. As a result, all of the wines from P&J come from sustainably-farmed vineyards and showcase some of the Yarra Valley's purest fruit sources.
