The Talty story starts years ago with my father, William Talty. He was the first to introduce me to "Zinfandel Country", and it was with him that I learned and practiced the fine art of winemaking. It had always been our dream to own a winery; unfortunately, we were unable to bring that dream to fruition prior to his unexpected death in 1993. My family and I bought our vineyard in 1997 and named it in his honor. The Estate wine of the Talty Winery comes from dry-farmed grapes grown on our own six-acre vineyard in Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. For over one hundred years, the Dry Creek Valley has been home to thousands of acres of cultivated land, five hundred of which are solely Zinfandel grapes. Although Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot grapes can be seen trellised all over the valley, the abundance and quality of the valley's Zinfandel grapes has led most to consider the Dry Creek Valley, "Zinfandel Country". As was my father's way, each Talty Zinfandel is truely handcrafted, from vine to wine. Our Read more »

  • We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit.  Now comes the really trying part:  building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor.  But it's official:  I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper...

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More
