Taylor Berkley Boydstun comes to winemaking from a unique perspective. He was not necessarily destined to become a winemaker, growing up as he did in the heart of Illinois corn country, and it was in fact only studying abroad in Europe that sparked an interest in the beverage at all. But once kindled, a love for wine quickly grew, and a chance opportunity to work on a vineyard crew in New Zealand fanned the flames into a passion. That experience led to harvest positions in California, Austria, and Australia and eventually the decision to make the pursuit of fine wine his calling. The combination of artistry and physicality, the heady mix of the analytical and the natural, all in the quest for a perfect creation, proved to alluring to refuse. Now, as the owner and winemaker of T. Berkley Wines and as a consultant for other projects, Taylor Berkley can put those years of experience across all aspects of the industry to use. Harnessing the often-split tasks of grape growing and winemaking, equally at home in the vineyard or the cellar, he brings a true European sensibility to his craft.
