Pax

Sonoma, California


Pax and Pam Mahle moved to wine country in 1997 to pursue a career in the wine business. After a few years tasting and sourcing Californian wines for Dean and Deluca, Pax decided to launch his own brand, and in 2000 made his first wine. 


Pax’s focus was syrah, working with growers in cool-climate vineyards from Mendocino and Sonoma. He is extremely selective of the vineyards he works with, weighing location, soil, exposition, the dedication of growers, and sustainability. 

Pax wines seek to balance ripe grapes with good acidity to yield powerful yet structured and nuanced wines.
