Taylors Wines

Taylors Wines was founded in 1969 by Bill Taylor Snr. and his sons, Bill, and John. Wine merchants at the time, they set out to bring to life their passion for famous French clarets and established a promising site in South Australia’s Clare Valley near the Wakefield River. Taylors Wines continues as a family-owned and operated wine company, with the third generation at the helm. Taylors’ unique blend of ‘old world’ estate philosophy, ‘new world’ winemaking innovation and zealous attention to detail has seen the family winery awarded more than 7,500 medals and trophies at prestigious wine shows the world over.

The Taylor family is committed to functioning in a responsible and sustainable manner, nurturing both land and sea. In 2021, Taylors was the first independent Australian winery to commit to the Science Based Targets initiative with a target to reduce its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 50% by the year 2030, and to achieve Net Zero by 2050.

Taylors is proud to support the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust as it is an iconic institution that educates people about how we can better interact with nature in a more sustainable way. As an agricultural business, the family winery knows all too well the impacts of climate change on the land they work from. It is Taylors’ goal to act responsibly for future generations by applying best practice principles in environmental management to enhance sustainable business activities and products.

This partnership supports the goals of our nation’s leading botanical research organisation, the Australian Institute of Botanical Science, to discover, understand, and protect plants to drive effective conservation solutions. By developing bespoke Taylors Wines events and activations across our Botanic Gardens in Sydney, these activities will help highlight the power of plants, the importance of our living collections, and the critical role plants play in building a resilient future for all life that depends on them.
