THE SARZOTTI FAMILY
Sarzotti Vineyard & Winery, a small family-owned and operated venture set off El Pomar on the east side of Templeton not far from Highway 41, produces 3,000 cases a year, 100 cases per varietal. As a complete family operation, it is owned by Jim and Cheryl Sarzotti along with their son and daughter-in-law, James and Jenne Sarzotti.
The Sarzottis have been growing grapes for 16 years on their west Templeton property. When visitors stop by the tasting room, located at 180 Bella Ranch Road, they will always be greeted by a family member.
“It’s very family orientated here – we believe everyone should be treated like [family],” said Jim, a third generation Italian American who shares winemaking duties with son James. “We favor our wines and want everyone to try them.”
Jim said Sarzotti wines are “made the old-fashioned way here – hands-on.”
A HANDS ON OPERATION
We manage and control all aspects of our vineyard and winery production. Our family has a commitment to crafting wines that are consistently high in quality at an exceptional value.
AWARD WINNING WINE
Our grapes are grown, hand picked, and processed under strict supervision. We currently produce only 1500 cases of wine which allows us to pursue our passion of making premier award winning wines.

Our store and Tasting Room is now open Thursday through Sunday from 11am to 5pm. Tastings are also available for your party mid-week by appointment.
