This winery is quintessential beautiful Australian scenery, architecture, hospitality and wines all in one place. A MUST for any McLaren Vale visit. Pets and kids are fine to bring along and it's a great place to chill out for a picnic as well.

We were pleasantly impressed with the crew at Paxton's and the wines are of a high standard. Certainly they have taken the time to make your visit welcoming and pleasant. Certainly put these on your must visit Cellar Door list!
