We really enjoyed our visit here. Clearly there are many bigger wineries some with great views and food etc but we really liked this one for the quality of the wine and the amazing dedication of the owner. The level of production is low as there is only so much a small team can do but everything we tried was... More

Very simple tasting room with a limited production. The ladies who poured the wines were very nice. No pressure to buy anything. Nice outside.

Our tour guide talked this winery up on the bus as we were driving from our first stop. I was not wowed at all. The tasting advisor mentioned Chris the owner numerous times; however, he never said hello or acknowledged us. The tasting was nice, but now wowing. The picnic area was pretty and we enjoyed lunch which redeemed this... More

We first visited Chris Loxton's winery in 2012 shortly after he opened operations. We loved it then and we love it even more now. If you are hoping to experience passion, dedication, great wine and friendly, knowledgeable people, Loxton's is the place! Not only will you taste great wines, you will also learn a little about how the grapes are... More

We were looking for a "down to earth" winery to visit and Loxton was recommended. The staff spent a lot of time explaining about the wines and were in no rush to push us out. The best surprise is their port. I do not like port but Loxton's was excellent and I had to buy a bottle.

Our Californian friends are friends of owner Chris Loxton, and so our visit to California and Sonoma County had to include Loxton's. Chris is a delight and it is great to see an Aussie fitting in so well with the local wine scene, producing great wines from arrangements he has made with other wine growers. While we were there tasting... More

We had so much fun learning about how he made wine. We spent quite a while just chatting as we were the only people in there as we showed up just before closing time but he still let us taste. I would highly recommend stopping by there and just relaxing during the day.

We visited Loxton via Platypus Tours. Chris was AWESOME. His dry, Aussie humor mixed in fabulously with his grape to table knowledge about wine making. He was detailed about the process from planting to bottling. A very worthwhile visit to fully understand what makes wine what we love.

We stopped here on a recommendation and really enjoyed some beautiful reds in the company of the winemaker and owner, Chris Loxton. Not fancy, more like a warehouse, but still pleasant and charming. Spend some time chatting, and you won't miss the castle or fancy grounds. It is a bit off the main highway, so the scenery is quite fine.... More

We also visited Loxton as part of a Platypus Wine Tour in Sonoma. Appearance wise, Loxton was the least fancy winery, yet the visit was very informative and the wines were wonderful. We had the pleasure of meeting Chris Loxton, the owner from a long line of Australian wine makers, who clearly devotes a lot of time to working every... More
