LANDCROSS FARM, HOME TO OUR WINERY AND CELLAR DOOR DISCOVER

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 consultant winemaker Kate Goodman and winemaker Ashleigh Seymour,  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.

Our 2021 Rhone blend is hitting the bottling line today! Look out for it in the next couple of months after it’s had a little sleep before heading to market. #mclarenvale has the perfect climate for these varieties mirroring the south of France where these varieties are traditionally grown and blended together.

We’re all about keeping close to nature here at Paxton’s. From our preservative-free wines to our lush, 100% organically cared for lawns, Mother Nature is our muse.

Picnic at Paxton is a celebration of this connection.

Grab your family and friends
Kick-off your shoes
Find a shady tree
And unwind with live music, wine and food ✌🏽

We are very proud and excited to announce that our 2021 Paxton Graciano was awarded Best Organic Wine in Show at the recent Alternative Varieties Wine Show Gold Medal 95pt. We were one of the early adopters to this varietal in McLaren Vale and so happy to see it being recognised and awarded. Although it's orgins are in Spain, its clear that the McLaren Vale terroir has welcomed it with open arms. #graciano #organicwine #biodynamicwine #mclarenvale #bestinshow #goldmedal #vivaespaña #AustralianAlternativeVarietiesWineShow ...
