Back in 2000, Rodolfo Folino purchased 54 acres in rural Kutztown on Rt. 78 with hopes of developing the land for homes. After 7 years of spending money and time on a project that clearly was not going to happen due to township and environmental regulations, his only hope was to try and resell the land as farm in order to recoup a portion of the money he had spent. One evening, Marco and Andrea Folino were relaxing and reading when they came across a story of a husband and wife who opened their own winery. They talked about what a fun and exciting venture that would be when a light bulb went off in their heads. Our family has a combined 40 years of experience in the restaurant industry, all of which have been successful ventures. Marco's grandfather also had a vineyard in Italy in his early years of life. To bring these two elements of our family history together made perfect sense.
Folino Estate is a vineyard, winery, restaurant, tasting room & gift shop, and banquet facility. From baby showers, to graduation parties, to bridal showers, weddings, milestone birthday parties, and retirement parties, we want Folino Estate to be the first place people come when a memory is to be made.
The tagline we have chosen for Folino Estate is Nel Vino C’e la Verita. In Italian, this means In Wine There is Truth because the truth is when Rodolfo Folino bought that land to develop homes and ran into so many problems, it was because it was always meant to be Folino Estate.
Folino Estate Vineyard & Winery reviews
My husband and I opted to stop in for lunch during a weekend getaway at a nearby hotel. We were able to make a reservation for lunch online on the same day we planned to stop on. Beautiful festive... more »
The venue is beautiful and menu is authentic Italian; however, the actual meals are only good, not great. I thought it was odd that my side salad had blue cheese on it. If that was mentioned on menu, I don’t remember, and I definitely would have asked for it without. I would have thought mozzarella would be used. The mixed drink prices were high and my espresso martini was disappointing. GNA In West Reading makes them much better. Wine is good. Like others have said, it’s noisy - seems to be a trend in many newer restaurants these days. We will return, but not anytime soon.
Some of the best service I have ever had and that means something as I used to serve! Excellent food, hot and quick. Was great!
