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.

We visited for a tasting and found the staff member extremely knowledgeable and friendly and all wines excellent. We bought a 6 pk plus an extra wine for dinner that night. Freight for 6 wines is reasonably priced. Lovely setting and a great range of wines, including some brilliant premium wines ($10 pp to taste premium selection, redeemed on purchase).... More

We did the winery tour (bookings essential) which took about 2 hours and included a tasting and mixing exercise at the end. Was a wonderful experience. Seeing all the winery processes and machinery in a detailed tour was really interesting. We did a wine tasting at the end as we really like Taylors wines. Whites and reds are both great.

I am not a huge fan of Taylors Wine but the cellar door is a real find. Recently renovated this is a great place to stop off on the way to Clare. Very knowledgeable staff and a great selection of wines to taste

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!
