From the Producer: "As the pioneering Pinot Noir producer in the Arroyo Grande Valley, we made our first wine in 1986 and planted our first vineyard in 1982. We are inspired by Burgundy for its unwavering dedication to wine that perfectly expresses place and time. Our location within California’s SLO Coast region imparts a beautiful mix of gentle sunshine and cool weather ideally suited for Pinot Noir. Talley Pinot Noir tends to be refreshing, energetic, and delicate rather than fruit-laden and oak-heavy. Our Pinot typically expresses aromas of forest floor and violet, cranberry and raspberry on the palate, and an elegant and silky texture.

Climatically our coolest site, Rosemary’s Vineyard tends to produce berries with thicker skins than our other vineyards. The resulting wines have a darker appeal, with a surprisingly light and elegant flavor profile. And because of the unique combination of cool temperatures and shaly loam soil, Rosemary’s Pinot Noir has higher acidity that provides incredible length on the finish."


The goal at Talley Vineyards is to produce estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that best reflect the unique characteristics of each of the Talley family’s five San Luis Obispo County vineyards. Talley is located in the Arroyo Grande Valley on California’s South Central Coast, eight miles from the Pacific Ocean. The Talley family has owned the land for three generations with a focus on vegetables until the first grapes were planted on the property in 1986, which the land was well equipped for, given its rolling hills and breezy climate. Brian Talley started his work on the family vegetable farm at the age of 12, and he now runs the vineyard program which is about 36,000 cases today. Of special note is the Rosemary’s Vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, named after Brian’s mother and the estate matriarch. All wines produced under the Talley label are grown, produced, and bottled by Talley. They also make a line of value wines under the Bishop’s Peak label.
