Since 1979, family owned Maxwell Wines, with its eighty acre estate vineyard, has built a reputation for producing handmade, rich and robust reds that combine exquisite fruit quality with structure and finesse. The signature Lime Cave Cabernet and Ellen Street Shiraz reds are acclaimed for their cellaring potential and purity of expression. The white wines achieve freshness and superb varietal character via slow, cool ferments that capture the delicacies of the grapes. At Maxwell’s, we believe “Life’s too short to drink bad wine”.
Owned and managed by Mark Maxwell, the winery employs a team of wine industry professionals who each take a hands-on (or paws-on) approach to ensuring Maxwell Wines maintains its reputation as a premium wine producer.
The family is also famous for its range of Maxwell Meads, being the most significant producer in the southern hemisphere of this time-honoured, delicious and golden fermented honey. The Maxwell Meads’ purity of flavour is testament to almost 50 years of family research and development.
