A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to pour for our wine club members at the Adobe Member lounge, and I can say it was one of my favorite days working here at Talley Vineyards. After being promoted recently, it took me a few months to truly settle into my new position and a lot of my time I dedicated to hours in the office acquainting myself with the ins and outs of our company. During that period, I missed out on the exhilarating and rewarding experience of pouring alongside our gifted staff and serving our loyal club members. However, this Saturday renewed my love for what I do and inspired me to continue to generate new ideas to show our members just how much they mean to us.
Our member lounge is our way of expressing our appreciation for our members and allows us to interact with our guests in a way we couldn’t before. Our staff works diligently to continuously improve the experience, whether it’s through showcasing the delicious seasonal produce we have available from the Farm, pouring special library wines we’ve secretly fallen in love with, and providing the highest standard of service we can to our guests. We appreciate everyone who takes the time to come out and visit us at the lounge, and we hope you all continue to enjoy the experience as much as we do.
Stay tuned for a special winter edition of the Member Lounge, coming soon!
Over the last few weeks our ground and the surrounding landscape have changed dramatically from the dry golden-brown waves of grass, to rippling greens stalks that come up waist high. It is astonishing how just a few days of rain can have such an immense effect!
Recently, I, along with a few members of the Tasting Room Team, have taken to running through our estate vineyards. It has been a great opportunity for us to explore the surrounding hillsides, and see first-hand where our fruit is being sourced from.
The beautiful scenery has helped make what was once a daunting task a now breath-taking (literally) experience. These after-work jogs have easily become one of my favorite activities. We’ve been blessed with an incredible team, and this is just one of the many ways our staff has continued to bond together. The combination of good company, incredible views, and the thrill of exercise has been hard to beat.
If you haven’t yet had the chance to experience the dusty gold sunset over the surrounding valley I encourage you to come join us. It is unforgettable.!
