Discover our story, our wines and our history!

Testarossa Winery, located in the historic Novitiate of Los Gatos, approximately sixty miles south of San Francisco, was founded by the husband and wife team of Rob and Diana Jensen. Leaving high-tech careers behind, they started Testarossa by producing 25 cases in their garage. Today, Testarossa produces over 15,000 cases annually, and we have earned hundreds of 90-point-plus scores on our wines from all the top wine publications.

The name Testarossa (Italian for "red-head") was a nickname given to Rob when he was a university student in Italy. Our reserve Pinot Noir, the Cuvée Niclaire, is named after Rob and Diana's children, Nicholas and Claire. Our Diana's Reserve Chardonnay bears the name of our cofounder and proprietor.

Tasting rooms in our winery in Los Gatos and also in Carmel Valley at 1 E. Carmel Valley Road, Carmel Valley, CA 93924

  • Very lovely winery close to Los Gatos . Enjoyable late noon with slightly warmer weather in May. Sitting under the shelter outdoor and sipping a bottle of nice white Chardonnay is wonderful. Having some cheese platter may help to enhance the he wine tasting experience. Outdoor sitting is perfect to enjoy the nice afternoon. Plenty of parking and wonderful service too! The wine price is reasonable and you can have variety of choices to chose from too..
  • Great place to have a tasting of wine. The staff are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. They are dog friendly (if you have a well behaved puppy). The character ties boards are a wonderful pairing. Tim or Tom was our server with the flat brimmed hat and he was great!!!!
