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.
