There might be a little dust on the bottle, but don't let it fool you about what's inside. Incredibly delicious tastings @rottawinery. Cheers 🍷
Here's a little history about the vineyard and how it all started. Sending all of our prayers to those up further north in Sonoma and Napa.
In 1856, Adolph Siot, a French immigrant, was the first to plant wine grapes and build a winery in Templeton, CA.
Rotta sits on some of the finest grape growing soils in the famed Willow Creek District of the West side of Paso Robles. On the tail end of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range our vineyards hang off the steep hillsides comprised of old bedrock with largely Calcareous soils. Amongst the stratified layers of calcarious rock are occasional patches of younger marine sedimentary rocks of the Miocene age Monterey Formation. These soils are laden with old marine fossils and the occasional chunk of the famed Paso “whale bone”.
