Paxton Vineyards, McLaren Vale, South Australia

Over the last 30 years, Paxton Vineyards have represented the amazing product of well-nurtured and biodynamically grown grapes. The family-run winery has a wide range of estate-grown wines of which you can taste in full at the cellar door at Landcross Farm.

Mel, me and the Paxton dog

I picked up some of the Jones Block Shiraz during my visit, a fruity, spicy drop that is also vegan friendly. The Tempranillo and the Guesser Red Blend were also great drops.
