ABOUT THE WINERY
Robert Talbott, Sr., his wife Audrey, and their son, Robb, move to Carmel, California to start a luxury tie company. Trips overseas buying silk introduces the Talbotts to the fine wines of France; the Talbotts begin to dream of using the Burgundian techniques they had become passionate about to make their own Californian wines.
The renowned Talbott Vineyards crafts estate-grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir inspired by the traditions of Burgundy. With two estate vineyards located in Monterey County, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard and Diamond T Vineyard, Talbott offers a portfolio of exceptional wines to enjoy. Our winemaking team is led by head winemaker David Coventry, who prides himself on putting the fruit first and maximizing vineyard expression in the wines he crafts.
For more than three decades, Talbott Vineyards wines have consistently garnered praise from wine critics and enthusiasts alike, including receiving a rare 100-point score in a Wine Spectator retrospective tasting for our 1990 Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay.
