Let's meet at the

Let's dive into the backstory here: we're a young family who kicked things off with a small vineyard back in 2015, Hollyhock. Fast forward to 2020, and we took the plunge, going all-in and adopting the historic Rotta Winery. It's been a whirlwind from there – we’ve been replanting the vineyard, getting permits for new projects, and creating some epic restoration designs to pay tribute to the storied history.

But here's the thing – we're a family caught in a conundrum. We want to pay homage to the past but still carve out our own path. And let's not even get started on the whole "ROE-TA vs. RAW-TA" thing.   Rotta Zin and Rotta Black Monukka are here to stay, they're legends in a bottle. For the rest, we're cooking up new wine names paired with stories that'll stick with you.

Now, for the big reveal – the winery's got a new fresh name:


Yeah, it might sound a bit quirky, but that's us. Here's the thought – if you're at the pinnacle or apex, it infers that you've "made it" and achieved all there is. But, we believe we are only at the midpoint of our journey.  A midpoint is a connection, a balance point in mathematics.  Plus - we’re smack in the middle between San Francisco and LA.

In a world where everything's turned up to eleven, we want to be the mid•point that can bring people together.  It's about balance, and guess what? Wine's the ultimate balance game – acid, tannin, phenolics, and alcohol all playing together.  

Trends? Nah, we're not chasing 'em. We're making wine that's unique, interesting, and heck, something we'd love to sip. That's how we roll, creating our own trends along the way. Authenticity's our thing – no facades, no pretending. And those winery pics? No need to look all pensive in vineyards or pretend to be a Rolex model while crushing grapes. 

So, here's to the next chapter – Rotta is now mid•point. Where authenticity, balance, connection, and a pinch of quirkiness rule. Fermenting friendships along the way.

We're looking forward to meeting you at the midpoint
