Donati Family Winery Description

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.

Love the building and pictures inside. Big white building right off Rte 46 stands out to easily find. Was disappointed with the wines. Prices were extremely reasonable but the taste did not agree with my pallet.

I really enjoyed the Meritage here. So if you like Meritage I would definitely recommend checking out this winery. Friendly people here.
