Everything Mark Maxwell makes is Maxwell-made. The unique result of his elbow grease and ingenuity. Stubborn determination and unbending standards. Eccentricity and authenticity.
Carved into the limestone hill at the heart of McLarenVale and etched into its history is the five-star winery, meadery and restaurant he built with seductive locations for spectacular occasions: a tribute to one man’s vision and tenacity. Drop by when you next visit the Vale.
The Maxwell vineyards are situated on a solid limestone hill, the estate vines grow in minimal (as little as 15cm) brown loam topsoils, with some mature 50+ year old Shiraz vines planted in alluvial loam, again over limestone. These vines, planted in 1953, provide fruit for the highly regarded Maxwell Ellen Street Shiraz.
