Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounding Rosemary Talley’s home, Rosemary’s Vineyard is the coolest site at Talley Vineyards. It has distinctive chalky shale soils and produces chardonnay marked by refreshing acidity. It produces our most ageworthy and highly regarded wines.
The 2015 vintage of Rosemary’s Chardonnay is pale straw in appearance. On the nose, creamy notes of hazelnut and croissant are balanced by a hint of white flower. The palate is marked by a zesty acidity, with notes of lemon balm, juicy Golden Delicious apple, and crushed rock. Try pairing this chardonnay with Petrale sole garnished with a corn relish or soft Camembert cheese.
Welcome to Talley Vineyards
At Talley Vineyards, the holiday season is a time of sharing, especially with those in need. We got things started in November with a contribution to support the fire relief effort in Northern California. Between a commitment of 5% of our tasting room sales for the month, a special contribution from the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers to support the farm worker community in Sonoma County, and a collaborative auction lot at the SLO Wine Country Harvest on the Coast, we were able to contribute a total of $ 17,385 to help our friends and colleagues to the north who suffered the devastation of the largest wildfires in California history. Thanks to everyone who supported this effort!
The spirit of sharing continues in the month of December. Here are a couple of ideas: if you want to share the gift of food and wine, we’ve put together several special gift packages featuring our wines along with a copy of Our California Table. Not only is the book full of great seasonal farm to table recipes and wine pairing ideas, but profits from the sales benefit the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers. If you are more interested in pure philanthropy, please consider a donation directly to the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers to the Community Foundation of San Luis Obispo.
However you choose to share and celebrate, all of us here at Talley Vineyards wish you and your family the very best this holiday season.
Cheers! Brian Talley
