Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: At Tolosa, we are true believers in the special terroir that is Edna Valley, nestled amongst the East-West running volcanic hills of San Luis Obispo County and the frontier for the most complex cool-climate varietals in California. Our Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays reflect the cold Pacific wind that sweeps down the coast and funnels into the valley, as well as the remarkable diversity of soil types: ingredients for nuanced and balanced wines of distinctive character. We combine traditional methods such as hand punch down and whole berry uncrushed fermentations with cutting edge technology in soil exploration and vineyard mapping to handcraft exceptional Pinot noirs and Chardonnays that are the purest expressions of Edna Valley. Visit us daily 11-6pm for exclusive limited release and barrel tasting flights. Reservations recommended. Contact our concierge at 805.782.0500.

Tolosa Winery offers very fine wine available in their tasting room. They specialize in Chardonnay and Pinot noir. All superb. Their flagship Pinot is very possibly the finest one of its kind in the area. Prices in the tasting room range in 2017 from $42-$120.

Nice surroundings and facilities. A bit commercial in style, but hey we are in California so what to expect. Modern tasting bar. Friendly and informative service. 20 dollar for 4 samplers, all of them ok, 2 in particular very good. We bought a bottle with for 38 that waited the tasting fee.

Tolosa is perfectly located for breathtaking views of the vineyards with the Edna Valley in the background.

We're members and frequently visit Tolosa for tastings with friends. The service never disappoints.

The wine is worth every penny. My favorite is the Viognier, however my wife loves the syrah. You can't go wrong.

We were touring Central Coast wineries while staying in Paso Robles. We needed to drop one of our group at the airport at SLO so spent the morning touring that area. We did the normal tasting at Tolosa and decided on the spot to come back for the private tasting and cheese pairing. We had our private somm, John, who was knowledgeable and ably handled a group that included some with strong wine knowledge. Several of us joined the club, and I have been delighted to continue to taste Tolosa wines since.
The setting is gorgeous, and the whole facility is well run.
