Partner & Sales & Winery Relations
Taylor is the younger daughter of Andrea and Susan Bartolucci. Like Brette, she spent her formative years on the family's Madonna Vineyard in Carneros.
From a very early age Taylor enjoyed helping her father with various tasks in the vineyard and the winery. Over time, these tasks developed into a full-time job.
During her teenage years she worked in the cellar and vineyard, and following graduation from high school began giving tours in the tasting room during her vacations home from college. It was at this time that she also began assisting her family with public relation events.
In 2004, Taylor graduated from Pepperdine University with a B.A. in Theatre Arts. She promptly accepted a job at a public relations firm in Los Angeles and began to build her knowledge and skills. While in Los Angeles, she continued to assist with special events at the winery and enrolled in the University of California, Davis Viticulture and Enology distance-learning program. In July of 2005, she returned to Napa and joined Brette and her father as a partner in the winery and Director of Sales and Winery Relations. Upon completion of her Davis coursework in July 2006, Taylor graduated and received a certificate degree in Winemaking.
Today, she is a member of the Napa Valley Vintner Association, Next Generation of Wine, Carneros Wine Alliance, and when she is not traveling, an avid performer in local theatrical productions. As a fourth generation member of the Bartolucci family, she has enthusiastically made a commitment to help carry on the family legacy. Taylor is excited about the future of Madonna Estate and is dedicated to continuing the premium grape growing and fine winemaking that has been created by the three generations before her.
