SA’s Taylor Wines has just been awarded Winery of the Year at prestigious awards ceremony

Clare Valley’s Taylor Wines has been awarded the prestigious title of Winery of the Year this month at the Monterey International Wine Competition.

An SA winery has beaten some of the most well-known wine regions in the world as they recently claimed the title of Winery of the Year at a prestigious competition.

Taylors Wines in Clare Valley, South Australia, was presented the prestigious title at this year’s Monterey International Wine Competition in California, USA.

This comes after Taylors Wines took the top spot at the 32nd annual MUNDUS VINI Grand International Wine Awards which was held in Germany this February.

The judging panel at the 30th Monterey International Wine Competition held in March this year had a panel of 18 US-based sommeliers, winemakers and wine media to judge the esteemed wine from all across the globe.

Our Australian wines were up against the incredible award-winning wines of countries like Italy and France, but ultimately the 2022 Jaraman Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley Chardonnay from Taylors Wines took gold. 

This award-winning wine that recently won at the MUNDUS VINI Grand International Wine Awards retails for only $26 here in Australia, not only making it one of the cheapest among SA wines but now, the best. 

Nestled in the Clare Valley and situated by the Wakefield River, Taylors Wines is a family-owned company operating both rurally and in urban settings for over 40 years. 

With over three generations of wine-making experience, the company has committed to creating “wines that will stand the test of time and that the next generation will be proud of.” Taylors Wines is also passionately committed to land and sustainable practices.

Founded in the late 1950s, the third-generation winemaker and managing director Mitchell Taylor has created an incredible business that is being recognised for its hard work and achievements in the wine industry. 

In the past nine years, the SA business has achieved a total of seven awards at the MUNDUS VINI, and among their gold award they also won “Best of Show Australian White”. 

Taylor Wines was not the only SA business that won awards at this year’s MUNDUS VINI, Barossa Valley’s own Schubert Estate Wines won the “Best of Show Australian Red”.
