Brian Talley’s grandfather started farming in the Arroyo Grande Valley back in 1948. It was Brian’s dad who planted grapes in the early 1980s and eventually started producing wine as well, and as they say, the rest is history. 

Talley has won numerous prestigious awards and received the honor of having Talley wines served at numerous White House dinners.
