About the Winemaker

Bill Taylor Snr, and his sons, Bill and John were wine merchants in Sydney. All three Taylors were singularly passionate about wine – and most particularly the famous French clarets such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild from Bordeaux. This love affair with exceptionally crafted wine eventually inspired them to try and create a stunning wine of their own.
Founded in 1969, the vineyard is still family owned after three generations, and the family have been credited with crafting great Australian wines. Their philosophy is 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 site and to highlight the unique varietal expression of each grape variety.
