Talbott Vineyards Special Wine Dinner Tonight!

Posted on

Robert and Audrey Talbott settled in Carmel, CA in 1950 and started the Robert Talbott Tie Co.  Today, Talbott clothing stores are everywhere and son Robb – in addition to running the clothing empire, operates a super successful winery specializing in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir!  Please join TONIGHT when we sample three upscale Chardonnays and three Pinot Noirs from Talbott’s Central Coast Winery.

Although some of the selections are just released and as of yet un-rated, we have three wines that Robert Parker has scored over 90 points!  The Carlton has been a big supporter of Talbott wines for many years and I personally have consumed more of their Kali Hart Chardonnay (named for their daughter) than perhaps anyone else on the planet!  When you join us for this special Wine Dinner, you will understand the addictive qualities of their spectacular products!
