About
Taylors Wines is a family-owned wine producer with an impressive list of award winning wines. The Taylor family’s vineyards are situated just outside of the tiny township of Auburn in the picturesque Clare Valley. These vineyards were first purchased by the Taylor family in 1969. Originally, wine merchants, they were singularly passionate about wine and set out to craft exceptional wine that would rival the best in the world. Their 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 they achieve the seemingly contradictory outcome of ‘enormous delicacy’ or ‘massive finesse’ when it comes to the flavour and structure of their wines. Taylors Wines are branded as Wakefield Wines in the northern hemisphere due to trademark restrictions held by the owners of Taylors Port.

Great winery
Apr. 2021
We had a Scoopon deal and definitely were not disappointed.
The wine tasting was done professionally, without being pretentious. And both cellar door staff members were equally good.
Our platter was put together, using local produce and was enjoyed outdoors, with a glass of Tempranillo.
On arrival, I noticed that there was no seating, with back support and, having a serious back issue I asked if it was possible to have a chair with a back on it. Not a problem. They headed out back and wiped down a chair for me, before bringing it to the front of house.
Thank you.
I will recommending this place to all my friends.

Big Beat of Expectations
Apr. 2021 • Couples
At the risk of doing Taylor’s a disservice, I’d thought the mass scale of production of this winery might lead to an average experience but this was not the case. Some different tasing options, some terrific wines in pleasant enough surroundings. Service was friendly and helpful. I was disappointed the tasting price was not deducted from my purchases which costs them a star. It’s really about the wines though and they were very good.

Lovely experience
Jan. 2021 • Couples
This was our first stop off on our way into Clare, we had a cheese and wine pairing ($15) and a chocolate and wine pairing ($15), I actually enjoyed reading about them myself off the card that comes with the wine flights

The staff were absolutely wonderful and so friendly.

I suggest joining up to the wine club it’s free and gives you a discount on the wines you buy, they also send you a $50 voucher that you can use on 6 bottles of wine so I will be returning as I leave to purchase more.

The views are lovely too.

Awesome Experience at Taylors
Nov. 2020 • Couples
Visited the cellar door on Friday last week we did wine and cheese tasting, staff members were informative we were told that tasting setup was supposed to be a self-guided experience, however we were explained that the order of tasting the wine, cheese then back to the wine sample again which is amazing we got to explore these by ourselves in front of such a nice view! It was a busy afternoon, staff members were checking on us every now and then. We enjoyed the format of the experience and on the way out of the valley today we got a nice selection of the wine!

Opportunity missed
Nov. 2020 • Couples
Visited Taylor’s today as I couldn’t miss an opportunity to visit the cellar door to one of my favourite wineries.
Unfortunately the cellar door was a great let down.
We were not greeted by staff until literally standing under their nose and the wine tasting lacked personal connection.
By no means was it busy, but we were left to try our wine and read a tiny comment about each wine.
Yes the wine was delicious but I’m really disappointed at the experience, I wanted to leave there with boxes of wine, instead I left with nothing buy a bad experience.

A lovely place to visit with stunning views when sitting outside. The temperature was not high but the outside area is protected so very pleasant. Good service of tasty wines.

Impressive setting, wine and chocolate flight something different.
Jan. 2020 • Friends
First visit. Loved the setting and well kept grounds. Was slightly disappointed on the service. Waited for someone to actually ask us if we wanted to wine taste, then the lady kept going off doing other things. Felt a bit like is there something wrong with us? Eventually someone else took over, and actually made us feel she was engaged with us. The wine and chocolate flight for $10 was a good addition to the experience. Lovely outdoor setting and gardens. Always can find a wine to enjoy and buy. Make sure you check this one out. But just be prepared for hit and miss service.

Wine and Cheese
Nov. 2019 • Couples
A good range of wines to sample - both whites and red - informative and friendly host - for $30 we shared a cheese board with a glass of sparkling white and a rich Cab Sav. Wine prices very competitive. Walked from Auburn - relaxing valley views.

Terrific Taylors Wines
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We are great fans of Taylors Wines and on this visit those we tasted were splendid. The reds are superb, with additional tastings of their nero d'avola, and another favourite, their estate rose absolutely wonderful.
Whilst the wines are superb, the tasting centre staff could do with some improvement in the hospitality stakes, and their platter for two ..... well, of all the South Australian wine regions, and even the Clare Valley, they need to see what their competitors provide. This was barely adequate as a lunch platter for 1 person, certainly not two. We won't be back for a platter, but the wines are still worth the journey.

Hi _lille4, Thank you for your recent visit to our Clare Valley Cellar Door. I'm so glad you enjoyed the wines you tasted. Upon reading your review, I checked in with the staff who recalled there was a visitor who felt the cheese platter was not adequate for two people. they advised that more provisions were added to the platter to ensure your were satisfied so I hope that you felt that your needs weer catered for in this instance. we certainly always try our best to ensure our visitors have the best experience possible. As per your advice, we did indeed check out the completion prior to making cheese platters available and felt that our offer was definitely on par, given the complimentary glass of wine. We do thank you for your feedback and will always endeavour to ensure we meet our visitors expectations. Cheers, Cherry

Top class wines
Oct. 2019 • Couples
HAD to go to Taylors Wines as part of our Barossa/Clare Valley trip. Taylors Wines are world class. The cellar door has some really good prices & packages & the staff were very helpful & made us feel special.

Make sure you ask the staff what specials they have & joining their wine club is also a good idea.
