As Talley Vineyards celebrates 25 years as one of the most respected wineries in the nation, Brian Talley reflects on what made it all possible. From the people to the history, find out what sets this family winery apart from the rest.
There are a ton of popular vineyards that make delicious wine in the United States, but a hidden gem is Talley Vineyards. Located on the coast in Arroyo Grande, CA, Talley Vineyards is in the perfect spot to grow grapes for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. For the Talley family, the last three generations have consisted of learning, refining and perfecting the wine-making process. As a result of their hard work and passion, Talley Vineyards now produces approximately 30,000 cases of wine every year.
We would recommend taking the private Estate tour and tasting. This experience blows all others away. For an hour and a half, you will get a private tour of the estate, vineyard and winery, as well as a barrage of tastings. For this tour, you must call ahead and book it in advance. No visit to Talley Vineyards is complete with out checking out the views of the vineyard from their tasting room.
Anyone who still wonders whether or not California can produce an elite Chardonnay must visit this Vineyard. Despite being one of the elite California estates, Talley Vineyard is reasonably priced and truly enjoyable.
