About Talley Vineyards

Before the Talley family made wine, they grew peppers, avocados, zucchini and more. In fact, in the Arroyo Grande Valley, the Talley’s have more of a name for vegetable growing than winemaking.

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2012

Pale yellow.  Expansive, highly perfumed bouquet of tangerine, honeysuckle and chamomile, with a spicy topnote.  Deeply pitched orchard and pit fruit flavors are energized by juicy acidity, with notes of citrus zest and minerals emerging with air.  A lively citrus pith note adds definition and a bitter edge to the long, sappy finish.

Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

Chardonnay

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
