Jules Taylor Wines source their grapes from vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, Marlborough. Well, not so much from vineyards as back corners of vineyards, rises and hollows and dry-as bits of vineyards.
Jules and viticulturist, Jeremy Hyland, have used their not inconsiderable knowledge of the region to find those small parts of vineyards that will produce the grapes and the flavour profiles that they are looking for. But as much as seeking special bits of land, and grapes, they also look very much for relationships. The relationships that they have with their winegrowers are very important. They want people who care about what they produce. Good relationships produce good grapes. And it’s good grapes that make the best wines.
