Chardonnay Poster

Early in my winegrowing career, I handled the sales of our wines in Northern California.  During that time, I called on a wine shop called Pacific Wine Company, one of the most iconic wine merchants in the United States.  It was a badge of honor to sell wine here because they carried an amazing collection of Burgundy and the very best California wines.

In addition to a world class wine selection, Pacific Wine Company was also known for a monthly catalog that featured a distinctive cartoon cover.  The cartoons were a collaboration between artist Bob Johnson and Pacific Wine Company owner Mike Lynch.  Sadly, Pacific Wine Company closed its doors in the mid 90s after an ill fated move to a new location.  But, the cartoons lived on as a feature in Wine Enthusiast Magazine. After a 3 year run there, Mike and Bob moved on to other projects, and the classic “Lynch Bob” cartoon series came to an end…….until now.

As we were brainstorming ideas to get people thinking a little differently about Talley Vineyards, we hit upon the idea of bringing the cartoons back.  I’m pleased to announce the first in the series.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  If you do, be among the first 100 people to mention it in our Tasting Room and receive a free copy.

Genius! Thanks for bringing their wicked sense of humor to a new audience! You rock, Brian--and I wouldn't turn down a glass of Talley either.

The fact of the matter, though, is that opening wine bottles is easier than you think. When opening sparkling wines, you need to be cautious about the type of cork and also the amount of pressure inside the bottle. Thanks.'s Gravatar

n some private schools, tag day donations are given to charitable programs in the community. Other schools collect canned food donations instead of money and distribute these food items to needy families. Thanks.

Cradle the wine bottle on top of the napkin with the bottom in the palm of the hand, label facing out at all times. Never carry the bottle by the neck or below your waist. Thanks.
