Taylors Wines is a strong family wine brand with an impressive roll call of award winning wines. The Taylor family’s vineyards are just outside of the tiny township of Auburn in the picturesque Clare Valley. These vineyards were first purchased by Bill Taylor Snr, together with his in sons, Bill and John, in 1969. Originally, wine merchants, all three Taylors were singularly passionate about wine and set out to find the perfect piece of land to establish in the Taylors wine name. Inspired by the great producers of Bordeaux, it was their vision to create a Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia that would rival the best in the world. From the outset, Taylors have aimed to honour the outstanding fruit produced as a result of the unique Clare Valley terroir. Our winemaking philosophy centres on the knowledge that if you ‘respect the fruit’ you can preserve the delicate nature of those elements we enjoy most about wine; the flavours and aromas. This is how we can achieve the seemingly contradictory outcome of ‘enormous delicacy’ or ‘massive finesse’ when it comes to the flavour and structure of our wines.

Taylors Wines are branded as Wakefield in the northern hemisphere due to trademark restrictions held by the owners of Taylors Port.

Our 1st stop for the day was Taylor's and we were not disappointed The Team on duty, Peter & particularly Taylia were the most gracious hosts. We were interested in their range of Rieslings, and went thru the entire portfolio taking in some aged and premium. Took the offer to upsell to the St.Andrews range and again was suitably impressed... More

The day we went we had a lot of one on one time with the girl helping us select wines. She never rushed us and her knowledge and enthusiasm was just lovely. The wines are so good.

We were lucky enough to be here in between tour group tasting and had the place to our selves. The staff not only shared there great wines and knowledge of the vintages but also gave us stories of the area and the history of the vineyards. More than just a wonderful wine experience and great education about the Clare Valley... More

Iconic family wine company est. 1969 with multi levels from entry Estate to Pioneer. Perhaps best known for their Cabernet but now a 'cellar door only' range takes centre stage and are wonderful!

We enjoyed a variety of wine tastings as evident on our eventual purchases. There were no bad wines, all were above average but nothing there to say they were standouts. The service by Andrew was very good and made us appreciate each wine. Note that Taylor's is a big boy in the industry and not your smaller boutique wines. We... More

We visited this winery and sampled their wines. Several wines stood out which we purchased. Obviously, this is subject to the palate of the taster.

I visited the Taylors Wines of Clare Valley with G-adventures. We had previously had another wine tasting in the hunter valley which had been a great success and a lot of fun. We were expecting the same but were all very disappointed. There was just 1 lady behind the bar serving the wines we were to taste. She just served... More
