One Giant Leap

One day after Neil Armstrong’s historic lunar landing, Bill Taylor turned to say the first of many goodbyes to the Clare Valley property that was to become the Taylor family vineyard. While both men had succeeded in a momentous achievement, each had an unfamiliar and challenging voyage ahead of them. Bill committed on this day to a journey which would see the establishment of the largest continuous vineyard in Australia and the beginning of one giant leap to crafting wines that would rival the world’s best.

One Small Step

The 20th of July 1969 is a significant day in our history: not only was it the day that astronaut Neil Armstrong took one small step on the surface of the moon, but also the same day Bill Taylor travelled to, and first set foot on, what was to become our renowned family vineyard. While one stepped on the barren lunar surface, the other stepped on rich terra rossa soils with the hope and determination to craft wines to rival the world's best.

Discoveries

In the early 1960s Bill Taylor Snr had a dream: to create magnificent Australian wine that would rival the finest in the world, so he embarked on a journey to discover the perfect vineyard site. After a tireless search, Bill found what he was looking for in a relatively unknown valley in South Australia. Today these stunning wines are renowned the world over for their style, elegance and finesse, fulfilling Bill's dream and rewarding his perseverance.
