We were referred to Rotta Winery by another winery when we said we liked sherry. We did the wine tasting and were blown away by the Black Monukka. It's in a beautiful bottle and we had to buy some. It is one of the oldest wineries in the area and the person working that afternoon gave us some great recommendations... More

They are combining cold weather grapes with warm weather grapes to produce some excellent white wines. But the Zin's are amazing! 70 year old vines producing some of the best Zin's I have ever tasted. They sell out quick so buy as much as you can when there. I barrel tasted a Pinot Gri that was excellent. Their chardonnay. Sav... More

My wife and I were impressed with and bought a few bottles of the Sherry. They rest of the wine didn't really jump out and grab me but the did have a plentiful group of wines for the tasting. However, the tasting room was kind of cramped which put a little damper on the visit. We will probably go back... More

Paso is now our wine country destination after Solvang got so commercial. And Rotta is a "must go" whever we go there. We've been wine club members from the first visit. Great people - Gale is terrific, as is everyone else - and yes, the Black Monukka is as good as you read about in the other reviews. Definitely worth... More

One of only two wineries my wife bought wine at when we went wine tasting in the area. We especially liked the Black Monukka Dessert Wine.

Visited during the barrel tasting weekend. Also tried their normal selection of wines. Excellent tasting wines. Our personal favorite was the barrel tasting wine which will be for sale soon! Make sure to try the Black monukka desert wine. Incredibly unique! We also enjoyed the Zinfandel Rose. Will visit again for sure. Staff was very pleasant and helpful

We had a lovely time chatting with the people at Rotta. The wines are very good. The dessert wines are awesome! This is the oldest winery in the area and totally worth the visit just for historic purposes.

At a recommendation we visited Rotta Winery to taste their wines made from Black Monukka grapes. The lady who helped us, Gale, was great. The wine was great and I left with several bottles of their various wines which I can't wait to share with friends.
