Great Wine, Even Better Staff

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

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
