Paxton Wines, McLaren Vale SA

The Paxton Wines is a hotel located in McLaren Vale, South Australia.
They have an average rating of 4.8 out of 113 reviews, with the latest ratings ranging from 1 to 5.
Love these wines. Went in looking for whites predominantly as we head into summer and walked away with quite a bit more than I bargained for. Karyn was an amazing hostess and really drilled down on what we liked and although there were set tastings she "bent the rules" a bit to make the experience suit our palates. The site of the winery is spectacular with great views over the bush vines rather than trellises and with the organic and biodynamic practices, they are turning out beautiful wines. The repurposing of ancient farm buildings and the multi generational wine-makers added to the story. Forget about the big flashy producers with their massive marketing budgets - go and visit these little boutique guys with small batch production of top quality wines that are great to start with but age beautifully.

We loved the informal atmosphere, live music and great wines. The wines are very approachable and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. There's plenty of space on the lawns or in the tasting room. We walked in on a Sunday and were able to get a beautiful spot on the patio. Tastings are a very reasonable $10 per person for 4 wines.

We caught up with friends for a birthday, was perfect weather on a Sunday arvo to lounge on the grass, eat pizza, and drink delicious wine ?. It's worth bringing some chairs and picnic rugs for larger groups for lawn lounging. My fiance and I ended up doing a tasting and buying a box of mixed wine. Staff were excellent, they brought your pizza to you, and the tasting staff were very knowledgeable and made our experience personable. Tastings are $20, but the price is inclusive if you buy at least 2 bottles. Well worth it, we'll be back.

We had the absolute pleasure of being able to get married here last March and it was the best decision!

We honestly didn't look at any other venues - as soon as we walked in and were greeted by the friendly staff we knew this was it!

The wine is THE BEST, the venue / premise is unmatched and mostly the staff are so kind and you can sense a real family vibe every time you go there!

On our actual day they went over and above to make our day so special! They worked so well with our vendors and it was lovely to see the joy they were bringing all our guests when getting drinks and food!

We are so thankful we got married here and enjoy coming back every now and then to reminisce on the beautiful ay with a splendid glass of wine!

We had our Wedding at Paxton Wines on what turned out to be one of the biggest storms we have ever had. The staff at Paxton were so kind, helpful and supportive, they handled the weather and last minute changes to the space wonderfully. They just wanted us to have the day we had envisioned and thanks to them, we did. I would not hesitate to recommend Paxton as a wedding venue. Thank you so much to the whole team at Paxton!

We booked for 3:30 over the phone twice to confirm for a wine tasting, only to arrive to a wedding being held and Sasha being very rude saying we booked for 12:30 and had to be quiet and leave, Julianne was an angel and so nice about the situation! So props to her, and shame on sasha

We visited the Paxton Winery for their Easter Family Day
There were a lot of families enjoying the day
We purchased 3 bottles of wine and lined up to purchase a Pizza ...after 20 minutes on a line we were sent away as there were 30 orders still being made...were told come back in an hour ???'
The weather wasn't favourable..it started to drizzle with rain...but we lined up again to get a pizza. This time we were told ...no more pizzas were being made...sorry
Disappointing as we had a group of 12 and 3 young children.
We travelled from Port Augusta and my brother came from Victoria
Not blaming the Winery for the Pizza fiasco...but the catering was very poor
Maybe a BBQ or 2 would have helped
And when was the Easter Egg Hunt
We left disappointed and hungry

We visited on a cloudy cold day but our reception was warm and sunny. The friendly Scottish lass behind the bar was so very helpful, informative and charming. Met one of the winemakers and had a lovely chat with her too. Left with some Rose', some Paxton's AAA and the Queen Bee? highly recommend
