Imagine driving up to a gorgeous Italian style villa in anticipation of drinking a nice cool glass of Pinot Grigio paired with a mouth-watering pasta dish, watching the sun set over a gorgeous vineyard. Now imagine where you would have to be to enjoy this. Tuscany? Napa Valley? How about Kutztown, PA.

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.

  • This was my first time to Folino Estate and it will definitely not be that last. The food and presentation was a 10! Can’t wait for the weather to get warmer to sit outside and enjoy the views with wine, great food and friends!!
  • I'd give 5 stars, but they've got a good scam going. The wine was great. The food was great. Not a huge menu, but it's good. When you walk in they tell you it's a 2 hour wait so then you go into the retail area and buy some wine and cheese and crackers. We loved sitting outside and drinking the great wine and eating cheese and crackers, but they got us a table within an hour. They say they are understaffed, but there are a ton of wait staff. Service was good. So plan on waiting with wine, crackers, and cheese, but not as long as they say.
