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.

For us, we're always in the dirt. Through the use of natural preparations and composts we bring the soil and vine into balance. The result? Exceptionally pure and expressive fruit; exceptional wines

  • 31 degrees in Adelaide today. Can’t believe it’s heading towards May. So we’re reaching for one of these. This is our Guesser White, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and friends. Extremely popular at cellar door, and available in our online store

  • Say hello to our new look 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon. The featured letter type is based on woodblock printing, reflecting the wood grains that are so prominent throughout our vineyards and historic cellar door. Thanks to @parallaxdesign for their great work on the label design.

Now to the wine. It's Cabernet Sauvignon, make no mistake about it. Remarkably soft for a young wine; it's ready to go! Link in bio for more info.
