Paxton Wines

Established in 1979, Paxton is a family owned McLaren Vale 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, South Australia, 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 Michael Paxton – David’s son and Paxton winemaker & viticulturalist – Paxton produces a range of estate grown wines under the family label, including Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rose, Tempranillo, AAA (a Shiraz Grenache blend), MV Shiraz, Quandong Farm Shiraz, Jones Block Shiraz, ‘The Vale’ Cabernet, The Guesser Cabernet Shiraz and the flagship wine, the Paxton EJ Shiraz.  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 Cellar Door
Paxton vineyards are spread across a diverse number of sites and soil types, which are managed without compromise from planting to harvest. Michael 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 preparations.

In 2005 Paxton opened their cellar door at Landcross Farm, an historic 1860s sheep farm and site of the original village. Managed by David’s second son Ben Paxton, the cellar door is open every day from 10am-5pm for tastings, functions and events.
