Employee Spotlight: Emma Lyon

We’ve had no shortage of Cal Poly SLO Alums here at Talley Vineyards and recently we were able to add another to the club.  Joining the production team is Emma Lyon, one of our newest production assistants.  Emma is fresh out of Cal Poly’s Wine & Viticulture program having graduated just last month.  We are excited to have her here at Talley Vineyards and are looking forward to a great 2018 harvest.

I’ve asked Emma some ice-breaker questions so that you can all get to know her a little bit better.
