RAPAZZINI WINERY History Temporarily closed for construction and covid protocols

Rapazzini Winery is located at 4350 Monterey Highway adjacent to The Garlic Shoppe. Alex and Charlie Larson have worked here since 1994 and purchased the business and real estate in 2000 from Jon Rapazzini. Jon and his brother started the winery and tasting room helping to create the popularity of California wines and wine tasting in 1962. We continue to make affordable delicious wine in very small lots. We try to offer our wines with a year or two extra bottle age at the same price as most wineries offer the most recent vintage. We think Rapazzini wines taste better for the money. Step through the giant doors made out of a single barrel to enter a fun place to taste, laugh, learn and talk wine. Our tasting room is a beautiful 2 story open beamed room with natural wood walls and ceilings. Behind a 40 foot long pounded copper bar you will find Chef Owner Alex and our friendly customer servers while the music plays on the big black shiny grand piano. We have most of our wines open every day for your wine tasting with your friends, neighbors and business associates. Oh don't forget your boyfriend or girlfriend would love to spend a few hours with just you, a glass of wine and some fun.
