Taylor Family Vineyards
In 1980, Napa Valley residents Jerry and Pat Taylor, along with their children Scott, Sandy, and Mike, took on the ultimate do-it-yourself project: converting ten acres of the family’s 23-acre ranch in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley to vineyard. This experience of the five family members, on their hands and knees planting and tending young vines, was a dream come true for Jerry, a fifth-generation Napa County resident who had grown up on his family’s farm.
As the vineyard grew and matured, so did the family tending it. The next generation, Sandy and her husband, Phil Carlson, were the driving force behind the creation of Taylor Family Vineyards as a wine brand. This next venture was a way to honor the family’s deep roots in the Napa farming community while keeping an eye to its future: creating a legacy by transforming the fruits of their labor into fine wine. In 2013 Mike Taylor joined the family business full time and in 2014 Sandy’s children Danielle and Tyler joined the winery.
The inaugural vintage of Taylor Family Vineyards was the 2002. The winery now produces 1,700 cases of wine per year, which is available only through the winery. Today, you will find three generations of Taylor’s, happily working side by side in the family winery, growing and producing wines from several regions in the Napa Valley and from their beloved Stags Leap District Vineyard.
Three Generations, One Passion.
