Winebow Imports Adds Paxton Wines to Portfolio

Family-owned Paxton Wines in McLaren Vale, Australia, a leader in both organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking, has joined the Winebow Imports' Pioneer portfolio, effective immediately.

The Paxton Estate consists of approximately 200 acres of vineyards in McLaren Vale that are mainly on the Seaview Ridge. They are home to some of the region's oldest vines, including the legendary 125-year-old Thomas Block. McLaren Vale is one of Australia's most unique and important wine regions as one of the most geologically diverse in the world, producing some of the world's best super premium wines.

Established in 1979, Paxton was founded by David Paxton, who built a reputation as one of Australia's most respected viticulturalists, has been growing wine grapes of exceptional quality for over 30 years. Today, under the direction and guidance of consultant winemaker Kate Goodman and winemaker Ashleigh Seymour, Paxton produces a collection of estate grown wines that showcases McLaren Vale's exceptional fruit quality, natural diversity, and varietal expression.

"Paxton's organic and biodynamic farming practices speak to their commitment to stewardship so relevant to the modern consumer. This, along with their enviable McLaren Vale location, one of the most significant growing regions for Australian shiraz and grenache, make them an ideal partner for our portfolio," said Ian Downey, Winebow EVP.
