Thanksgiving Greetings

As the holiday season begins, all of us at Talley Vineyards agree that we have much to be thankful for.  With that in mind, we'd like to share a bit about our Thanksgiving plans and what we are looking forward to.

  • Alicia Peak, Tasting Room Assistant Manager - I am looking forward to the 49ers beating the Seahawks!  I am also looking forward to eating Yorkshire pudding, an annual Thanksgiving tradition in my house.
  • Alyssa Ball, Direct Sales Manager - I am looking forward to cooking the Thanksgiving meal with my sisters, spending time with my nephews and enjoying a great meal.  I am excited to open a magnum of our 2008 Estate Pinot Noir that has been waiting for a special occasion.
  • Belinda Christensen, Direct Sales Assistant Manager - I look forward to trying out some new and interesting recipes, like this one we found in the New York Times. 
  • Brian Talley - We will be hosting family from Arroyo Grande to Paso Robles for a very traditional Thanksgiving meal.  My go to wine is Pinot Noir because it pairs well with turkey, stuffing and gravy.
  • Christina Bailey, Sales and Marketing Assistant - I am most looking forward to my family visiting from Colorado and to cooking Thanksgiving dinner with my mom.
  • David Block, National Sales Manager - While we are cooking, we'll open a bottle of Bishop's Peak Riesling and a Portugese Vinho Verde.  They are low in alcohol and make for a refreshing start.  With appetizers, we'll switch to Talley Vineyards Edna Valley Pinot Noir and a Beaujolais Nouveaux I purchased this year.  For the serious mega meal, there will definitely be 2010 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir, Tablas Creek Esprit De Beaucastel and Mattina Fiore Grenache.  Then I'll look forward to taking a nap.
  • Jane Cozby, Tasting Room Attendant - Thanksgiving is the perfect combination of several things I love: family, friends, food and football!  I've been saving a magnum of 2010 Oliver's Vineyard Chardonnay and look forward to raising a glass with my family.  About 30 of us will gather to watch football, laugh, enjoy some wonderful wines and eat too much.
  • Kelly Soares, Tasting Room Assistant Manager - Although my husband and I prefer not to celebrate Thanksgiving in the traditional way, we look forward to a day off and going for a hike with a bottle of 2012 Bishop's Peak Pinot Noir and a couple of ham sandwiches in our backpack for a delicious picnic at the end of the trail.
  • Lucy Parkin, Tasting Room Manager - I look forward to my favorite activity of watching the Macy's parade and eating cinnamon rolls in the morning.  For mealtime, I've already pulled a bottle of 2008 Rosemary's Vineyard Pinot Noir out of the wine closet that will be great with dinner.
  • Marian Fiorentino, Tasting Room Attendant - We will drive to El Paso, Texas to see our son Michael who is stationed at Fort Bliss and to return Michael's dog Carl who we've been caring for.  Thanksgiving dinner will be at a restaurant where we'll be joined by two other officers and I'll be bringing bottles of our Estate Chardonnay, Estate Pinot Noir and Rincon Vineyard Pinot Noir to enjoy.  It is always sad to say goodbye to Michael and even harder to say goodbye to Carl too, but I am thankful for time together!
  • Michele Good, Direct of Business Operations - Along with my Thanksgiving pie, I will be enjoying a recently discovered bottle of our 1994 Late Harvest Riesling.  I didn't realize I had this wine, but found it a few weeks ago and look forward to trying it.
