Rosa d’Oro Winery is located in the town of Kelseyville and owned by the Buttitta Family. The vineyard is planted in the volcanic soils of the nearby Red Hills AVA. Only certified organic farming techniques are used in the vineyard. Olive trees are also on the property, and the Buttittas plan to produce olive oil and vinegar soon.
Rosa d’Oro specializes in Italian varietals including Primitivo, Dolcetto, Barbera, and Aglianico. The winery also makes Syrah, Chardonnay, and Semillon. Their Primitivo is especially critically acclaimed and pays homage to the family’s Italian heritage. This grape is originally from the Puglia region of Southern Italy.
The Buttittas also make a delicious Barbera with nice acidity and a fruit forward Dolcetto. Both of these grapes are from the Piedmont region in Northwestern Italy.
Owner Nick Buttitta lived in Sonoma County with his family for many years. He grew grapes and sold them to several well known wineries in the area including Sebastiani and Simi Winery.
