Winery SF

It’s no secret Italians have a love for the vine in their blood Ron Donati is no different. In 1998 when he purchased the Paicines property his vision was for his son, Matt Donati, to grow high quality, unique grapes from the 9th oldest AVA in California. Soon, after rave reviews of the fruit, Ron Donati (ever the business man) got to thinking_ good grapes make great wine. Thus is born Donati Family Vineyard.

In 2003 we produced Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage, and Claret, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc. We held these in bottle until 2005 when we started hand selling the product to great restaurants, and boutique wine shops. Again, our ears were burning with positive reviews and re-orders from our customers. We had so many requests from the public to get their hands on this wine – we couldn’t turn them down. Though Paicines offers a lovely home for our grapes, with a population of 204 – it’s not the best place for a Tasting Room, so we chose Templeton, CA (right outside of Paso Robles) for our new home.

March 1st 2007 was our first day of business in the Tasting Room, and we are still enjoying the continued support and love from our customers. Visit the Tasting Room and see for yourself what all the talk is about.

Visit our Tasting Room

Located on the corner of Highway 46 West and Vineyard Drive, the Donati Family Tasting Room is hard to miss! The three story building that looks like a European Chateau nestled in the hills of Templeton, CA.

As a full production Winery, our Tasting Room is a great stop to make on your next Central Coast Wine Country excursion. Want to peek into the cellar, tour the property, watch grapes from our vineyard being processed, and even check out the barrel room? Give us a call before you visit and we will be more than happy to accommodate any size group. If tasting great wine is what motivates you, we open at 11:00 in the morning and close at 5:00 in the evening…7 days a week! Drop by and try our wines, discover what we are all about, and take home some of the best wine on the Central Coast!

Because wine tasting can be hard work, Donati Family Vineyard offers a great spot to relax among the vines. Tasting Room guests are free to use our picnic grounds and Bocce courts.

We hope to see you soon. Please contact us if you have any questions- we’re here to help!
