It’s hard to tell with the warm weather we’ve had lately, but fall is in the air! It’s one of my favorite times of the year. I love seeing all the gourds and pumpkins in the field, and lined up in front of the Tasting Room and Adobe.
To kick off the fall season we had our 2nd annual Sip n’ pick in early October. The windy afternoon didn’t stop people from coming out to the Adobe and enjoying wine, music, pizza and of course picking out their own pumpkin from the patch!
Last week we hosted a Succulent Pumpkin workshop with Zest it Up and was a huge success! I was excited to attend and had a great time! I felt like a kid again, going to the patch picking out my own pumpkin, carving it and then decorating with beautiful succulents (which I can transplant later). It was such a great experience and fun to watch other attendees walking around curious to see what beautiful creations others did. I heard many say how much they loved the way others decorated theirs.
October to me is the beginning of the crazy, fun holiday season, and to be able to attend 2 wonderful events hosted at work makes it more enjoyable. I look forward to what the rest of the year has to bring.
If you need a pumpkin, there's still time to come out and pick your own!

The New Year is always a great time to start fresh and take on new adventures.
I don’t typically like to make resolutions, but more goals for the upcoming year. Sometimes it’s as simple as trying something new or reverting back to a good habit. One of my goals this year is to hike more often, and we are so fortunate to live on the Central Coast, there are so many amazing places to hike! Especially since we have great weather most of the year!
Last year some of the Talley employees had the opportunity to hike the Pismo Preserve. I had hiked it once before, but I was still looking forward to it. We went on a different trail and it was beautiful! Plus, an added bonus of bonding with your co-workers isn’t so bad either. The views are amazing! You can see all of Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Avila Beach and south toward Guadalupe dunes. A lot of history is in the mountains, so going on the docent led hike makes for an interesting and unique hike.
They have not officially opened the Pismo Preserve to the public yet, but you can visit their website and request a docent led hike.
Being born and raised in Arroyo Grande, I always enjoy exploring new areas and taking advantage of our beautiful weather by getting outside to be active. Hope you venture out to the Pismo Preserve, or any other hike in the San Luis Obispo County and make sure to visit us at Talley Vineyards for a relaxing glass of wine after! Happy hiking!
