Robert Talbott Sr., his wife Audrey, and their son Robb moved to Carmel, California, in 1950, where they started a luxury tie company. During silk buying trips to Europe for their growing tie business, the Talbotts visited French and Italian vineyards and became interested in fine wines and soon aspired to produce their own California wines, using the Burgundian techniques that they had become passionate about during their European vineyard tours.
They founded Talbott Vineyards in 1982 along with son Robb, with the planting of the 24-acre Diamond T Estate Vineyard and the construction of the first winery in Carmel Valley.
In 1994, when presented with the opportunity, the Talbotts jumped at the chance to acquire the Sleepy Hollow property. With the addition of Sleepy Hollow Vineyard, the Talbotts enjoy the benefits of being a 100 percent estate winery, with direct control of all farming of their vineyards.
Today, Talbott Vineyards produces estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir under four labels: Talbott, Logan, Case, and Kali Hart. Each line of wine is its own "winery within a winery," with its own distinctive style. The Talbott family plans to keep production small to maintain exacting quality standards and continue to create distinctive handmade wines with intensity, balance, and finesse.
