About
We are true believers in the special terroir that is Edna Valley. Influenced by the cool Pacific wind and hugged by the limestone soils with ancient seabed roots, Edna Valley creates some of the most complex cool-climate varietals in California. The temperate climate, with consistent temperatures and lots of sunlight, creates the perfect environment for our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes to thrive. Enjoy our award-winning wines in the tasting room or at events by visiting our website for more information. Our tasting room requires reservations and is open from 11am–6pm daily.

Thoroughly enjoyed this winery and everything about it was xlnt. From the moment you step onto this beautiful property, check-in to be seated for a personalized wine tasting flight of 6 different pours fir $45.00 to listening to the server share about the wine and the fantastic tasting wines themselves and the gorgeous views you can't help yourself from falling in love with this little slice of heaven. Definitely a must, especially if you enjoy Pinot Noir.

I do believe that it was the best wine I have ever had the pleasure to drink. I went to or called every retailer in the county tracking down a few bottles here and a case there. Is it my jaded memory or was it really that great. Still trying to find a vintage that I am willing to do that again for. Yesterday’s visit to Tolosa was a good event for us. The brother-in-law is a wine club member, so we took advantage of his discount to purchase a few bottles. Our favorite on this sunny and warm afternoon was a Chardonnay.

This was s first stop of the day and, boy, was it a good one. Justin took amazingly good care of us. Besides their Tolosa brand, they also have a bold red brand from Spain that was amazing. Very generous tasting pours, Our tasting included SEVEN wines. We were feeling NO pain when we left. This is a MUST TASTE winery.

I think this winery put all their money into the building and not into the wine. I nor anyone I know likes the wine here. Maybe it is because we have been to over 500 wineries and have a more refined palate.

Please note, we were totally happy with our tasting experience. Kelsey took excellent care of us from start to finish. Her knowledge and attitude were the standard that I would strive for in a staff. They even welcomed our small dog! (Dogs ok if on leash. If it's a nice day hit the patio for your tasting!)

The wine selections were hit or miss but that's the whole point of wine tasting. Not everything appeals to everyone.

Here's where points start coming off. Our tasting was $15 each, which is waived with the purchase of 2 bottles (acceptable enough on the surface). How much do they want to charge for each bottle? Well over TWICE the amount you'd pay at most retailers.

This is a completely backwards and downright STUPID business practice. You have just started a personal relationship with a consumer. You have an opportunity to create a lifelong brand loyal customer. What you DON'T do is price gouge. It costs the winery the least amount of money to sell a bottle. There's no transport or shipping costs when bought at the source. WHY would you slap your brand new customer in the face. Whoever the operations manager is should be immediately fired.

The tasting room is nice and inviting. The staff is very knowledgeable. They have a very wide range of both Red and white wines.

We really wanted to enjoy Tolosa, but our experience fell way short of other reviewers. Shortly after we arrived we were the only customers there. John was our pourer/attendant. Unfortunately, it appeared that we arrived on “wine club pick up day”. John barely spoke to us and I don’t think he would have blinked if we blew our brains out with a sawed off shotgun right in front of him. I don’t even remember the wines. We got interrupted at least 6-7 times. The wine club members were the priority, not us.

Was there not one extra employee there that could have taken care of us or the wine club members? Apparently not. They have a huge wall of glass that gives you a view of all their stainless steel tanks. What was odd was outside there were wonderful views but you would never know it inside. Why highlight the tanks and not the outside views?

This was our only negative experience out of NINETEEN wineries that we visited during our trip to the central coast region.

Top Quality Wine in lovely location. Visited here with friends from Cleveland and they enjoyed the beautiful location, nicely appointed tasting room, with view of the production tanks. Their Pinot Noir is just about the best I've had, and it is great to see their committment to sustainable practices. Quality people run this place, make this wine and serve it to visitors. A bit high on the tasting charge ($15) or more ($29) if you want a cheese platter to go with it. I guess I am so old I remember when all the wine tastings were free. Having said that, you do get a quality experience in a great setting from a top notch business.

We both were anxiously awaiting a return visit to Tolosa Winery, and thought it would be the highlight of the wineries we visited. We were wrong! We were there 4 or 5 years ago and had an incredible experience tasting their Chards, etc...even thought about joining their wine club.
The gentleman who poured for us was knowledgeable, but the pour list wines we had on Tuesday just didn't match up to Chamisal or others. We asked if he could pour some reserve 1772 Chard or anything else from the other list...he said that was only OK on weekends. Are you kidding me??
What difference did that make? He finally agreed to pour a Pinot and we bought it! We asked a 3rd time for the Chard and he declined. Well they must have so much business they didn't need ours obviously...so much for them, we were well taken care of a the other 3 wineries we went to in the SLO area that day.
