Historic Vineyards Collection

From a very special section of the famed Talley Vineyard. This well structured Pinot shows berry/cranberry notes and dusty, earthy spice charactertistic of the vineyard. The finish is elegant if not ethereal.

In the Arroyo Grande Valley lies Talley Vineyard that is internationally recognized for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.  Within in the vineyard are 14 separate subsections of vines. Rosemary's Vineyard is located on a hillside surrounding Rosemary Talley's home about one mile west of the Rincon Vineyard and is characterized by white, rocky fractured sandstone and loam, with some clay in the subsoil. Like the Rincon Vineyard, Rosemary's Vineyard is steep and very well drained. Because it is closer to the ocean, it is slightly cooler. Yields average less than three tons per acre.

High quality and long-term sustainability are the two principles that guide Talley Vineyards' farming decisions. Brian Talley and Vineyard Manager Travis Monk constantly strive to improve fruit quality while ensuring that the techniques employed work in harmony with the natural conditions of the individual vineyard sites. Biologically based farming techniques and integrated pest management practices are employed throughout the vineyards. To improve soil conditions, prevent erosion and provide fertility, cover crops are maintained in all vineyard blocks.
