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.

  • I recently had my wedding at Testarossa and it was the best decision we ever made. The facility and staff are above and beyond what we ever expected. The food is amazing as well as the amazing wine selection they offer. Kelsey was our event coordinator and did a fantastic job. She was so detail oriented and made sure we were comfortable and everything was perfect every step of the way. If you're thinking about getting married or having and event here do not hesitate to book it. It is worth it x1000. Additionally, we are wine members and truly enjoy visiting to try great wine in their tasting room and terrace as well as at Wine Bar 107 for some great snacks.
  • Had the elevated wine tasting experience. Our host Belinda was very knowledgeable and fun. Really enjoyed the time out there. Will go again!
