Zotovich Cellars is a family owned and operated boutique winery located in coastal Lompoc, California. Winemaker Joey Gummere has been a Santa Barbara County winemaker since 1997, working alongside some of the area’s most renowned vineyard managers and winemakers. At Zotovich Vineyards Joey uses his experience to craft small production wines that captures the character of our estate vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills to produce cool-climate wines of depth, distinction and complex beauty.

Zotovich's mainstay Pinot Noir, a perfectly classic expression of the grape from their estate vineyard in the cool Sta. Rita Hills, displays a pure nose of ripe cherry and dried strawberry is followed by Asian spice and sweet smoke notes and a suggestion of truffles, that showcases the purity Santa Rita Hills are known for. The palate is driven by red fruit and spice flavors supported by great acidity and fine tannins. This layered and supple Pinot finishes with fruit and spice notes that carry on for a long finish. This Pinot Noir aged in 100% French oak, 33% new.

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The 2020 Pinot Noir is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years, while the flavors remain bright. A burst of sweet red/purplish fruit, sage, lavender and mint lend notable immediacy to this open-knit, engaging Pinot from Zotovich. The 2020 is not super complex, but it is absolutely delicious and a fine example of this part of the appellation."
