Turley is a winery that focuses on small production “Big Red” wines from old vine Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, based in St. Helena in the Napa Valley, California. The winery is a family operation helmed brother and sister duo Larry and Helen Turley, founded in 1993. Their prestigious wines are in constantly high demand, and their private wine club has a two-year waiting list. The wines are produced from several vineyards, with vines dating back to the 1800s. Each terroir lends its own character to the wines, and they are given separate labels according to location each vintage. The vineyards are located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Lodi, Howell Mountain and Contra Costa.

  • Turley Zinfandel Judge Bell Amador County 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, briary fruit gains a nuance of pencil lead on the very complex and aromatic nose which shows rich medicinal and macerated herb top notes. In the mouth this shows off green herb an ivy notes on entry, followed by black currant fruit, a little wood, and a subtle bitter edge. Quite clear and precise on the palate, this turns a bit chewy on th... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • I find the assertion that oaked chardonnay is somehow lacking in pure fruit ... hands of people like Helen Turley, chardonnay can be fully malo'd, fermented in oak, and packed with delicious ripe fruit flavor. Brewer Clifton still makes a pretty good bottle of wine, most of which I think see both wood and malo; I prefer the Sweeney Canyon bott... Read More

  • Is it me, or are oaky chards out of fashion? Nowadays most every producer I encounter boasts about their stainless steel tanks. All I want to experience with my Chardonnay is toast with a big ol' pad of melted butter on top. Can anyone recommend some excellent oaky chard producers? Thanks!  Read More

  • Sounds interesting Mark, at least if there was a Charbono tasting to be had.OT...agree on Turley (plus I believe they source from Tofanelli's vineyard) so really not much interest there at an inflated price. However, in checking out Foley's he talks about the wine getting under 13% routinely and that the grape stops producing sugar at 22 Brix so... Read More

  • So does Turley but it's like $45. Foley wines tend to be a little on the big side. For this VT I was picking new world wine for an old world drinker so voted against Foley and Turley. Read More
