Rotta Winery, Templeton

4.3
#3 of 10 in Things to do in Templeton
Rotta Winery, founded in 1908 by the Rotta Family, is the only remaining family owned “original” winery in San Luis Obispo County. Mike Giubbini, grandson to the Rotta Family & Mark Caporale of Napa, have combined their talents to “bring back to life” the historic and rustic winery.

Today, Rotta Winery, just as in days of old, specializes in premium red and white wines along with flavorful and distinct dessert wines.

  • Rotta Winery is one of the oldest wineries in the area, established in 1908. The staff was excellent, giving an overview of the wineries history. They have a collection of old bottles that were used in the distant years by customers. The grounds have whale bone fossils from when the area was covered in water.
  • Really fun to hang out here. They have some really cool swings having from a giant tree, some lawn games, and tons of hang out places. We found a great spot outside and they brought our tastings out to us!! That have an amazing Sauv Blanc. My fav was the Leather & Lace fortified Zin port.
  • Perfect good wine..
  • Excellent value tasting; friendly staff; interesting wines. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Went to winery on Monday, 4/25/16. One of the oldest wineries in Paso, wines are excellent. Ended up joining club giving us a nice 30% discount on wines Tip: Buy a bottle of wine and tasting fee is waived
