The Vineyard Wine Market

A Turley Weekend Tasting

They are cult wines. They’re hard to come by and they do fetch unworldly sums on the auction market. But it’s odd how much misinformation still prevails about the Turley Wine Cellars bottlings, given their fame.”

For example, the winery does not belong to famed winemaker Helen Turley, but to her brother Larry and his wife Suzanne. And since 1995, the winemaker has not been Helen, but the very talented Ehren Jordan, who also now makes the wines for Neyers.

And despite what you may have heard, the Turley Zinfandels are not priced out of this world. Certainly not when compared to other cult wines. But not even when compared to other high-quality Zins from Ridge or Ravenswood.

Larry Turley, a emergency room physician who practiced in Augusta GA, has long loved Zinfandels made from California’s old vines. But his attention was directed elsewhere for years. He co-founded Frog’s Leap Winery in 1981 and co-owned it until 1993.
