About Us

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. Visit our Tasting Room in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea for a taste of our acclaimed wines.



Making great wine is not a matter of convenience, it is a matter of necessity

– David Coventry

Talbott Vineyards wines translate our acclaimed vineyards into every bottle we make. We farm to the vine and make wine to the barrel; these are the smallest-possible increments we can distinguish, and this is how we approach getting the very best from our vineyard into the bottle for you to enjoy.

Talbott Vineyards winemakers are keepers of a great history. We believe it is our responsibility to not only respect the past, but also to innovate in the present, ushering the legacy of Talbott Vineyards into the future.

Talbott Chardonnay


All of our Chardonnay undergoes the same gentle pressing process for the most delicate handling of the grape, allowing its natural characteristics to shine.

Pinot Noir


We use classic Burgundian techniques alongside modern methods to produce our Pinot Noir, blending tradition with contemporary practices.
