About This Winery
Arroyo Grande- Talley Vineyards has sweeping vistas, fine Chardonnay & Pinot Noir plus a great country casual environment.
Heading six miles northeast from the Village of Arroyo Grande you enter Lopez Canyon – the home of Talley Farms. The Talley family started their farming operation in 1948, and today second- and third-generation family members maintain Talley Farms’ international reputation for premium quality fruits and vegetables. In 1982 wine grapes were planted, and in 1986 the first wines were produced.
As you drive up to the state-of-the-art winery you pass the historic Rincon Adobe, which was built in the early 1860s and formerly served as the winery’s tasting room. Today a new tasting center greets visitors with its tile-roofed hacienda-style architecture, shady veranda, and lovely courtyard featuring tables, umbrellas and a delightful fountain. Lavender and rosemary plants mingle with the olive and pepper trees that surround the property. Inside the spacious tasting center are gourmet food items, logo clothing, pottery, Riedel glassware, picnic baskets, vineyard maps, and a large wooden tasting bar.
The bucolic view from the expansive windows reveals vineyards as well as row crops, and at times the air is filled simultaneously with the aromas of grapes, cilantro, bell peppers and lettuce. The wines of Talley are all estate-grown and include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Late-Harvest Riesling and a number of vineyard-designated Pinot Noir offerings.
Talley Vineyards also produces Bishop’s Peak wines, including value-priced Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah along with their proprietary Rock Solid Red blend. Magnums are available for some wines.↑ Less
