Established in 2000 by Pax and Pamela Mahle, Pax Wines focuses on Syrah from cool, coastal sites, as well as a selection of esoteric varieties that showcase the great diversity of California wine.

From the vineyard to the cellar, a holistic style of winemaking is practiced. This means that all the fruit is grown using organic, sustainable, or biodynamic methods and no unnatural additions are applied in the winery.

Pax’s focus has always been on the vineyard, what makes each vineyard unique and how best to emphasize that singularity in the bottle. Extensive tasting, research and travel have helped Pax achieve his goal of producing wines that break the conventional mold of California wines. 

Pax Mahle was named “Best New Winemaker” by Food & Wine Magazine in June 2005, and has been included in Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries for both Pax Wine Cellars and Wind Gap Wines. 

Recently with the proliferation of floods and fires in California, Pax has worked with and created organizations to help those in the wine industry that have been affected by these natural disasters. 

Today, Pax hopes to inspire people to create and drink wines from organically grown grapes that are produced without unnatural additions and push the conversation forward on freshness and transparency.
