For three generations the Taylor family’s unique blend of ‘old world’ estate philosophy and ‘new world’ winemaking innovation has seen them receive more than 5,800 medals at prestigious wine shows the world over, earning them the title of Australia’s Most Awarded Winery (WAWW 2016).
The family’s vineyards are situated in South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, in the sub-region of Auburn and stretch to another sub-region border, Watervale.
The Taylor family believe that truly great wines are made in the vineyard and that the art of fine winemaking is to respect and capture the essence of the vineyard and to highlight the unique varietal expression of each grape variety. With 500 hectares currently under vine, there are 12 different grape varieties grown in their vineyards.
The Taylors philosophy rests on the principle that the finest wines are those made with the greatest dedication and care. Above all their imperative is to ‘respect the fruit’.
