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.

My partner and I visited for a wine tasting and decided to share a cheese & wine and a chocolate & wine tasting. We were delighted to have been gifted a double chocolate tasting for the price of one, as well as large wine pours (amazing as it meant not halving a small piece of chocolate). Both tastings were incredible - I’m a cheese lover and he’s a chocolate lover so we both left very happy! The wines were beautiful - especially the Pinot noir chardonnay. Service was exceptional. Thanks Taylors!

We enjoyed a magnificent wine and cheese and a chocolate and cheese tasting experience at the lovely Taylors cellar door in Clare. The cellar door staff were wonderful providing information about the local wines, cheeses and chocolates and they assisted with their local knowledge offering us ideas to discover some other beautiful wineries in the Clare Valley. This truly was an amazing experience and is not to be missed when visiting Clare Valley.

Have enjoyed various Taylor’s wines for many years and was high on my list when visiting the Clare Valley. Was not disappointed. Surprised there was a range available for tasting at no cost. Have a number of wines only available from the cellar door. Have found all the Taylor’s reds, even the cheapest, can handle some cellaring with positive results. Staff were very informative and helpful.

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.

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.

Hi (agarda2018), Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to our cellar door and winery in the beautiful Clare Valley wine region. Yes, because our wines are so popular out in the general marketplace, people often assume we are a big corporation but we are still family owned and proudly so. I'm pleased you had an enjoyable visit and importantly, enjoyed the quality wines that we craft with the utmost of care and dedication. Cheers, Cherry

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.

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!

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.

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.
