  • 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.

  • Wine Bar @ Paxton is back! Our converted container has landed for some Spring vibes, but for a short time only before it heads to a secret location on the coast for the Summer. Come join us for a sundowner or knock-off drink, starting this Saturday! Open 3-7pm Fridays through Sundays from next week. Find us on Olivers Rd, McLaren Vale, between S.C.Pannell Wines and the turn off to d’Arenberg’s cube.

  • Our EJ block - 125+ year old vines - swimming in sour sobs. Sour sobs are a little weed flower that will die off at the first bit of heat, right about now actually. .

  • Oh Grenache, how we love you dearly - how you grow beautifully in our home on the Fleurieu Peninsula - how you go perfectly with the diversity of Australia’s cuisines - we love you for your beautiful aromatics, spice and all things nice. HAPPY INTERNATIONAL GRENACHE DAY to you, it’s your day, and we’ll drink to you, by drinking you, cause you’re only a wine at the end of the day!

  • These two:
Roo 1 - "Mate, seriously, I'm taller than you"
Roo 2 - "Bro, you must be kidding, I've got at least a couple of inches on you"
Roo 1 - "I'm standing in a ditch!"
Roo 2 - "Screw this, let's rumble, but mind the Shiraz vines"

  • It's 20 degrees out, and we're starting to get those Spring vibes. We've got some exciting plans for our pop-up container this coming season. Can't say much, but we will say this - it will be popping up in more than one location!

  • Pictured here is one of our EJ Shiraz vines, planted in the late 1800s, and can be found in our Thomas Block Vineyard. The is one of the oldest surviving vineyards in the region, and still on original rootstock.
.
Every vineyard has its story, and this one is out of this world. Thomas Block is named after the previous owners, who incidentally, are the grandparents of South Australian astronaut Andy Thomas. The low lying site where this vineyard sits is one of the coolest in McLaren Vale, and as a result produces fruit of exceptional natural balance and flavour.
