Taylors Wines has announced an ambitious multi-million dollar project to construct a new cellar door at its Clare Valley estate, with preparations already underway ahead of an expected opening in April 2023.

To bring the project to life, Taylors has called upon South Australia-based experts GP Architects, Cook Building and Georgie Shepherd Interior Design in what will be the first major upgrade or change to the Taylors cellar door experience in over 50 years.

“The Clare Valley has quickly become a feature region for travellers looking to immerse themselves in gourmet food and wine experiences. Producers in the area have stepped up to deliver world-class facilities to meet that demand,” Taylors Wines third-generation Winemaker & Managing Director Mitchell Taylor said.

“Our cellar door is a fantastic place to showcase our world-renowned wines, but we have plenty of room to grow, and this exciting next step will mean that yet more guests can experience the Clare Valley and our award-winning wines. The build and interiors team we’ve assembled has done an incredible job at capturing what we want guests to experience when they visit Taylors Wines.”

GP Architects has developed similar wine and hospitality sites in the region, including the Watervale Hotel, Pikes Wines & Slate Visitor Centre, and Pikes Beer Company Micro Brewery.

Senior Project Architect at GP Architects, Kristina Soggee said: “This is an exciting project which will breathe new life into an already beautiful existing space on the Taylors property – it’s something we are passionate about working on.

“We have spent a great deal of time working with the cellar door team at Taylors to get a deep understanding of how they would like to use the space, enhance their cellar door offering, and function as a tourist site to create a unique build that compliments the existing heritage homestead on site.”

Taylors aims to have the project complete by April 2023, with further details on the developments to be revealed in the coming months.
