The Rincon Vineyard is the home vineyard where Don Talley planted the first vines of Talley Vineyards in 1982 and where the winery is located. Consisting of two hillsides rising from the floor of the Arroyo Grande Valley, the clay calcareous soils of the West Rincon Vineyard yield wines with
distinctive mineral and iron notes.
Light burgundy in appearance, the 2015 vintage of Rincon Vineyard Pinot Noir is ruby in color and offers aromas of strawberry, herb, and cinnamon spice. The palate is soft and plush and exudes vibrant notes of cherry, ripe raspberry, and green tea.
Try pairing this pinot noir with ahi tuna with miso glaze or grilled pork tenderloin.

Welcome to Talley Vineyards
April marks the release of our 2016 Single Vineyard Selection Chardonnays. These wines are special both because they are representative of our 30th Anniversary vintage and because 2016 might just be the greatest vintage we’ve ever produced. After four years of severe drought, El Niño conditions brought the most rainfall to the San Luis Obispo Coast region since 2011. Though spring was cool and windy, temperatures throughout the rest of the season were moderate, especially during the critical summer months when veraison and ripening occurred. The absence of severe heat for any extended period during the harvest season meant we harvested the grapes at a moderate pace at optimal ripeness. Yields in the vineyard were consistent with five year averages and the resulting wines reflect the concentration, balance and elegance that is the hallmark of the confluence of a perfect growing season and a wine growing approach committed to capturing all the potential of our vineyards.
As much as we enjoyed producing these delicious wines, it brings even more pleasure to share them with you.
To purchase visit our Chardonnay page.
Cheers! Brian Talley
