We took a wine tour, and this was our 2nd stop. We were guided through a nice variety of wines half way through our tasting a huge group arrived our hostess did a great job of still making us feel special. My husband a self proclaimed "wine wimp" enjoyed the ports, and we bought a couple of bottles. I also... More

We had driven for four hours and had stopped at a brewery and a winery before this place. We were looking for something quiet where we could enjoy a couple tastes of wine and unwind. (both places before were too crowded.) We are so glad to stumble upon Rotta! Upon arrival we felt so at home and welcomed. It was... More

We visited around noon on a Sunday. We had a toddler and our dog in tow and someone greeted us right away, and invited us inside even with the dog since it was so hot outside and they weren't yet that busy. We were down in the lower part of the property (their event space vs. the usual tasting room)... More

Beautiful setting, great history and a staff that knows their stuff. We had a great tasting here and ended up leaving with a few bottles. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Wines are good and it is not too pricey. Purchase two bottles and tastings fees are waived. It is one of the oldest wineries (100+ years old).

I am limousine driver. Rotta was a nice place to go. It is was good. The new winemaker is now general manager too. The wine is wonderful. My clients like the personal knowledgeable service too. And...I really love their new chef made and inspired weekend lunches. Give it try. Please note I have their on business, with friends, and solo.

Worth the drive from Santa Barbara or San Francisco. The Syrah, Zinfindel and their sav blanc/ chardonny blend is awesome! Beautiful surroundings. Great tasting menu.

$10 tastings, waived if you buy 2 bottles. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Their wines are nice and of average prices, but nothing too impressive worth buying except for a bottle of Black Monukka, which we realized after finishing it that it tastes very close to Madeira (~$20 for full bottle at Bevmo). Overall a worthy stop along 46 West.

This was our third time tasting at Rotta. They are one of the oldest wineries in the area, and have some great wines, especially the zinfandel. We bought a bottle of the Siot and are looking forward to drinking it.

We went to Rotta in 2011 and loved it. Fantastic servers and fabulous wines. We put it as #2 on our list for this trip. Went back and tastings had jumped to $10 each. The college age servers were raving about the new wine maker. We tried the Siot label wines and thought it was bland. The only 2 wines... More
