OUR STORY

JULES TAYLOR WINES

Established, owned and operated here in Marlborough by Jules and George, Jules Taylor Wines is the successful result of big dreams, hard work and a healthy dose of not taking ourselves too seriously.

Born in Marlborough

Born in Marlborough in the year the first vines were planted, Jules has literally grown up with Sauvignon Blanc.

Local girl Jules spent several years putting her viticulture and oenology post graduate degree to use as Group Senior Winemaker for one of Marlborough’s largest wineries, and then as  Consultant Winemaker to the region’s most prestigious brand.

Nurtured in Italy

Several life-affirming vintages in Italy underscored Jules’ love of wine as a simple pleasure to be enjoyed alongside good food and great friends. Jules strongly believes wine should be more about creating great memories and less about status or cellaring potential.

ITALY BROUGHT HOME TO ME THE IMPORTANCE OF ENJOYING GREAT WINE WITH THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE IN A PLACE THAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU. DRINKING WINE SHOULD BE LESS ABOUT STATUS AND MORE ABOUT CREATING GOOD MEMORIES.

Cultivated in New Zealand

In 2001, Jules Taylor Wines emerged as a little moonlighting project with a mere 200 cases. Five years, two children and many, many late nights later, George and Jules took the nail-biting decision to put everything on the line, jack in their day jobs, and give their dream a shot.

ESTABLISHED IN MARLBOROUGH

Today, Jules makes her harvesting decisions in the vineyard, purely by taste rather than by laboratory analyses. No matter the cost, Jules will only release a wine if she is entirely satisfied it has met her standards.

Jules left her corporate winemaking career to give her the freedom to make wines the way she thinks they should be made. She only makes one batch of each wine every harvest. So, enjoy it while you can. Once it’s gone, it’s well and truly gone.
