  • About
    Rotta is one of the three original wineries in Paso Robles.

    Situated on the famed Willow Creek District, at the West side of Paso Robles, Rotta is the proud owner of some of the best and finest vine-growing soils, as well as one of the oldest vineyards in San Luis Obispo County.

    We specialize in creating excellent 100% varietal wines as well as some traditional Bordelaise blends like our star Time Capsule, an exceptional marriage between Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot; and some new guys brought home from Tuscany: Super Rotta, an adventurous mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.
