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. In 2000, the family released their first wine under the PAXTON label: the 1998 Paxton Shiraz. Today, Paxton produces a range of estate grown wines under the family label.
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. Michael Paxton continues to strive to minimize inputs and manages the Paxton vineyards biodynamically – a system of farming without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides with a focus on promoting healthy, living soils through the use of natural compost preparations.
