After recently winning the title of International Champion 2022 at the prestigious VINUS International Wine & Spirits Competition for the 2020 Taylors Estate Shiraz, we are delighted to welcome Taylors Wine to the University Club to host our October Wine Dinner.

The Taylor family’s long-standing association with the Clare Valley begins in the late 1950’s when as Sydney wine merchants, they partner with the Clare Valley Co-operative to bottle and distribute their own wines under the Chateau Clare label. Then, inspired by the great producers of Bordeaux, and with a vision to craft wines that rival the best in the world, the Taylor family begin an exploration to find the perfect plot of land on which to establish their family estate. On July 20, 1969, their quest brought them to a site by the Wakefield River in South Australia’s Clare Valley. So on the same day that Neil Armstrong takes man’s first steps onto the moon, Bill Taylor takes his first steps on the soil that will eventually become the family estate.

They are proud to be founding members of AFFW. Together with the other eleven winemaking families of Australia, they represent a cohesive voice for the mastery, passion and legacy that form the foundations of the Australian wine industry. It is their desire to use this voice to encourage the future of Australian wine, and ensure that the real story of our nation’s most iconic wines are always shared.

This is a dinner not to be missed!
