About Taylors


The Taylor Family’s wine journey started back in the 1950s when the South Australian Wine Distributors company was formed. This family-owned business bottled and distributed wines for the Clare Valley co-operative. Led by Bill Taylor Snr, and his two sons, Bill and John, the family’s passion for wine inspired them to try and create stunning wines of their own. Motivated by the great ‘old world’ winemakers of Europe and in particular Château Mouton Rothschild, they set out to find the perfect piece of land in Australia to establish a vineyard in the Taylor’s name. In 1969, after a considerable search, they found a promising 178-hectare site by the Wakefield River in the Clare Valley. Today there are four Taylor family members actively involved in the business. Second Generation Bill Taylor is Deputy Chairman, Mitchell Taylor is Managing Director and Third generation Winemaker, Clinton Taylor is General Manager Winery Operations and Justin Taylor is Export Manager. 

In 2017 Taylors Wines was awarded the #1 winery in the world by the World Association of Wine Writers and Journalists. From more than 50,000 producers and 700,000 wines, Taylors wines was ranked most awarded winery across the top 80 international wine competitions.
