Pax Mahle, Agartha and Wind Gap Wines
After Pax wine cellars were dissolved in 2008, the Pax brand was put on hold, leaving the Mahles to focus on their up and coming brand, Wind Gap Wines. In 2014, Pax and Pam re-launched with the original all-star lineup of Syrah that hailed from Alder Springs, Castelli-Knight Ranch and Griffin’s Lair. You will not want to miss out on Pax’s stellar wines which are a result of organic farming practices, vine-by-vine farming and a less is more approach to irrigation.
Wind Gap Wines is the newest project of Pamela and Pax Mahle. Wind Gap Wines was founded in 2006 and champions cool climate sourcing of Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a few other varieties.
Founder, Pax Mahle, describes his journey that led him to Agharta Wines. ”Before I knew it, I had a couple of (yet) unproven vineyards that had what I believed it would take to make some great Syrah, a business plan, a unique label concept based on Pangea and that underlying theme resonating through our focus. It wasn’t long before I found a ‘money guy’ and the rest is as they say ancient history. Eventually on this “journey” I was able to create a wine worthy of the name Pangea.”
