Stories in Every Sip: The Artisanal Magic of Rosa d’Oro’s Italian Wines

It’s a damp day in Lake County. The clouds hang low in the sky, hiding the top of Mt. Konocti in the distance. The rain is squalling, slanting sideways in the wind. But that hasn’t slowed down anything at Rosa d’Oro Winery in Kelseyville. Owner Nick Buttitta winds his way among the olive trees, turning his forklift into a garage as he sees our car park in the graveled driveway. “It’s bottling day,” he tells us as he slides off the seat, pulls his gloves off, and walks our way. “Let me make a quick phone call.” Phone cradled between his shoulder and ear, he walks to the tasting room/bottling shed, unlocks the door, and lets us in. It’s already clear that this experience is far different than tasting in Napa, where people elbow their way to the tasting bar to receive pours from people who don’t know anything about wine. No, the experience here is personal, intimate, and uniquely refreshing.
