This winery was founded by Central Coast resident neighbors who started the vineyards and winery together in 2001 and have gone on to establish one of the most popular wineries on the Central Coast. Rick Quinn and Dave Nichols joined forces in 1999 to create a 300 acre vineyard estate, winery, extensive wine repertoire and hospitality venue that resonates with its extensive club membership, followers and first-time visitors.
The name Opolo was inspired by the Serbian rosé wine known to come from founder Rick Quinn’s ancestral roots, and isn’t it fitting that this Zinfandel specialist adopted the grape now known to have originated on the coast of Dalmatia? Known not only for their organically-farmed wines, the winery and original tractor barn is a buzzing hub of entertainment with the Inn, tasting and event venues, vineyard tours, covered patio, busy pizza oven and kitchen, and even a distillery. Among many wines and options for tasting experiences at Opolo Vineyards Zin fans should be on the lookout for the opulently styled Mountain Zinfandel and Reserve Zinfandel.
