  • Huon Hook Wine Reviews

    Huon Hook, one of Australia’s leading wine reviewers, writes for publications such as Decanter, Gourmet Traveller Wine, and the Syndey Morning Herald. He’s a tough critic, so we were wrapped to have recently received the below two reviews. MV Shiraz 2016 – 91 Points Deep,…

  • 2016 Quandong Farm Shiraz Lands Top 100 & Blue-Gold at Sydney International Wine Competition
  • Wrapped at our 2018 James Halliday Wine Companion results

    With 11 wines scoring over 90 points, and 5 wines scoring 95 and above, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the reviews.

This is not just another wine club, which is why we’re not calling it a wine club. Think of it more like a social club if anything. Sure, we’ll ask you to buy some Paxton Wines, because that’s where the conversation starts and finishes. But we will also get to know you personally, introduce you to our home in McLaren Vale, teach you about Organic and Biodynamic winemaking, and have a heap of fun along the way. And of course we will look after you with a whole host of member benefits.

 

WELCOME TO PAXTON SOCIAL

OUR CELLAR DOOR

Paxton cellar door is conveniently located at the gateway to McLaren Vale. Housed in the original 1850’s shearing shed, the cellar door is surrounded by luscious sprawling lawns and oozes both charm and character with historic stone buildings dotted around the site.

OUR ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC VITICULTURE

We believe biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming. It uses natural preparations and composts to bring the soil and vine into balance, resulting in exceptionally pure and expressive fruit.

  • Essential quality control tasting of our soon to be released 2018 Pinot Gris - overlooking a Kangaroo Island sunset with fresh America River Oysters.

Can confidently say that the wine, oysters, and view all passed with A+ results!

  • McLaren Vale is considered one of the most unique and important wine growing regions in Australia today, as well as one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world. It is renowned for the production of super-premium quality wines – particularly red wines. Its history dates back to the mid-1800’s and is world renown for the production of not just Australia’s top premium wines but also some of the best wines on a global platform. This South Australian region, just 40 kilometres south of Adelaide, is known as ‘Sea & Vines’ which perfectly describes the essence of its favourable geographic location in the Gulf of St Vincent; its unique terroir soils, the winds, temperature, and Mediterranean climate. All of these unique factors are at the core of why the region’s vineyards produce such high-quality premium grapes

  • This is a pink box - it contains our new look Graciano. It’s being featured at Ruby Red Flamingo, they are the first ones to get their hands on it. P.S the courier didn’t leave it there, it was our winemaker Richard making a personal delivery and trying to be creative 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • What a pleasure it was for us to host members of The Killers for a winemakers dinner and winery tour this week on their hard earned, night off. They surely rocked Adelaide, what a show...and what a tour! #thekillers #wonderfulwonderful #adelaide #mclarenvale #paxtonwines
  • Over the coming months, we'll be rolling out our new packaging, which includes this awesome capsule designed by @parallaxdesign Why the bee?
.
Vines do not need bees, but they need plants for a healthier environment; that’s where the bees come into it. Bees are the primary pollinators of plants, which then aid in the natural replenishment of important soil nutrients.
.
The flowers that need bees then attract more bugs, and hence the healthy ecosystems begin. Keeping this biodiversity in balance eliminates the need for chemicals.
