Testimonials:

 

My daughter had her wedding at Paxton’s and I cannot express my gratitude to your staff for the great night we all had. Such a professional and organized event was presented for the wedding party and guests. I have even been informed one of the male staff carried the flower girl through the rain to minimize her getting soaked. Would be happy to recommend you to anyone who is interested in having an event. Thank you particularly to the event organizer Jen, who I understand is new to your company.

 

Pat Penny, Nov 2014

I just wanted to let you know what a great time we all had at the company event on Sunday. Thanks so much to you and the team at Paxton for providing a fabulous venue, entertainment, drinks and food. We were there from 1pm to 6pm and you looked after us beautifully. It was our first time at Paxton’s so we have been busy sharing our photographs on Facebook and telling everyone what a great time we had. We will look forward to future events. Thanks again

 

Roz Hanson Oct 2014

We’re back from our honeymoon and I’ve finally got time together to send a proper thank you for all your work to make our wedding such a lovely day. We had such a great time and it all ran so smoothly! Thank you for all your help setting up and packing up. The venue looked amazing – we’ve had so many comments from guests about what a lovely spot Paxton’s is. Thanks once again!

 

– Katelin and Adam, Nov 2014

Hi to all the wonderful staff at Paxtons! Our daughter Amy held her wedding at your beautiful winery on 5th September. We were all delighted with the venue and utterly helpful staff! Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them….. It really made everyone relaxed and able to enjoy the special day. If anyone is thinking of choosing a private and secluded venue away from the big wineries, please don’t hesitate and check out Paxton’s!

What will the 2022 vintage bring? 🧐

“Well, we've had quite unpredictable weather during flowering, a lot of rain and wind, so fruit set has not been the best in all of our vineyards. But that only means that crops will be a little lower than last year, so we might have to spend less energy on bunch thinning. The quality looks like it will be pretty good with beautiful green canopies that have only profited from the spring rains.
In Mclaren Vale, we have had a dry December - one of the driest on record, which has been conducive in eliminating any small amounts of mildew that had started in the rainy spring period.
Overall, everything is looking excellent out there, and I am looking forward to an exciting vintage and lots of new things to come at Paxton!”

-Ashleigh Seymour, Head Winemaker

Say hello to a man with two business hats. Garry Stillwell, the singer/guitarist has performed and shone for over 15 years. You can find him across the Southern Vales humming his sets while he moonlights (or daylights in his case) running his window-washing business!

Garry knows how to read a room and has amassed a following playing laidback acoustic to lively performances that will make you want to dance. You can expect classic renditions from the '60s through today with covers from The Beatles, Creedence, Cold Chisel, INXS, David Bowie, Coldplay and many more.

It's well worth catching Garry in the act as he leaves every atmosphere (and piece of glass) a little bit sparklier than he found it ✨

See you this Friday from 5pm!

Playing gigs in Mclaren Vale since he was 16 years old, Rhys Coventry is no stranger to the locals. His "acoustic chilled out folk" style only compliments his laid-back attitude. And as a local midcoast surfer, he knows how to keep a smile on his face when the weather gets stormy (back in November he happily played here in 20kph gusty winds!)

Rhys is now an established 21-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist who plays his signature Coastal Folk tunes across the Fleurieu Peninsula. But as much as we love his music, his endearing nature has us booking him again and again!

Does this man look familiar? You might have seen Mason Lloyde as a contestant on The Voice Australia 2020!

And lucky for us, he is playing at Paxton this Sunday.

Born in Broken Hill, NSW, Mason is a self-taught guitarist. Initially inspired by Elvis Presley, he went on to unearth his unique sound and elegant yet powerful raspy vocals. With an impressive vocal range and oozing charisma, it's not just us who are big fans of his music!

"So Dynamic" and "Such an elegant voice. Nothing like I've ever heard." -Kelly Rowland

Dying soil changed the course of Paxton Wines; here's how.

In the early 2000s, after nearly 20 years of grape farming, it was becoming apparent to David Paxton that the soil in his vineyards was slowly dying. He needed to find another way to farm to ensure soil & vineyard health for the future, so off he went to his first conference on biodynamics in Victoria. Intrigued by Rudolf Steiner and his Biodynamic principles, he thought, 'let's give this a go!' And give it a go, he did.
Returning to Mclaren Vale, David then converted 40+ acres at his newly acquired vineyard site, Quandong Farm. After the first vintage, David was so impressed by the quality of the fruit, moisture retention, and improved quality of the soil that he converted his entire estate, six vineyards across 200 acres to become fully biodynamic completed in 2011.

Today all Paxton Wines are 100% fully certified Organic and Biodynamic. David is still Paxton's head viticulturist, and he keeps a watchful eye on his vines as they continue to thrive.
