Consulting winemaking with a focus on the needs of small wineries.


Our Beginning

When Shalini moved to California in 2005 with a Master’s Degree in Music Performance, she never imagined that her long time love affair with wine would push her to pursue a full-time career in winemaking. Today, after being named Winemaker of the Year at the 2015 San Francisco International Wine Competition, she started Ottavino Wines to focus on small batch, artisanal winemaking with her clients from famed growing regions throughout Northern California.
