Paxton are leaders in both organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. Fruit for all wines are sourced solely from estate vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia.

Established in 1979, Paxton is a family owned wine company. Founder and owner, David Paxton is one of Australia’s most highly respected viticulturalists – a reputation built on managing and growing wine grapes of exceptional quality for over 30 years.

 

The Paxton family have nurtured their own vineyards in McLaren Vale for three decades. Internationally recognised as one of Australia’s leading wine regions, McLaren Vale is renowned for the production of super premium quality wines – particularly red wines.

In 2000 the family released their first wine under the PAXTON label: the 1998 Paxton Shiraz. Today, under the direction and guidance of winemaker Richard Freebairn Paxton produces a range of estate grown wines under the family label.

 

The Paxton wine range is an approachable collection of wines that showcase McLaren Vale’s fruit quality (through Paxton’s superior vineyard sites), natural diversity and varietal expression. In the winery, minimal winemaking intervention ensures the integrity of the fruit from vineyard to bottle.

Paxton vineyards are spread across a diverse number of sites and soil types, which are managed without compromise from planting to harvest. David Paxton continues to strive to minimise inputs and manages the Paxton vineyards biodynamically – a system of farming without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides with a focus on promoting healthy, living soils through the use of natural compost preparation.

 

In 2011 Paxton became a fully certified organic and biodynamic wine producer.

 

In 2005 Paxton opened their cellar door at Landcross Farm, a historic 1860s sheep farm and site of the original village. The cellar door is open everyday from 10am-5pm for tastings, functions and events.

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.
