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.

  • 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!

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.
