Winemaker Eric Johnson is a graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he studied Wine and Viticulture and Agricultural Business Management. He joined Talley Vineyards in 2007.
Eric was raised on a family farm in Los Banos, California. “I appreciate the tradition of quality that the Talley family has fostered since they began farming the Arroyo Grande Valley in 1948,” he said. “I believe that the world’s greatest wines are defined by place as opposed to winemaking manipulation.” In addition, Eric has a great work ethic and passion for excellence. “A great winemaker needs flair, imagination and the inspiration of divine discontent.”
Eric has traveled to France, Italy, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile for the opportunity to explore wine grape regions or work harvests. In his spare time, Eric enjoys outdoor sports, food and wine. He lives in San Luis Obispo.
