The renowned Edna Valley winery brings its first-class wine experience to customers
December 1, 2020 (San Luis Obispo, Calif.) — Tolosa, acclaimed producer of estate and single vineyard Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from Edna Valley and renowned California appellations, is pleased to announce the launch of Tolosa Uncorked — A Private Virtual Tasting Experience. Tolosa Uncorked makes an authentic Tolosa tasting experience easily accessible from the comfort of your home or work place. Tolosa Uncorked is available for small intimate virtual tastings or large corporate virtual events.
Driven by the belief that wine brings people together, Tolosa has built a reputation for delivering engaging, informative and enjoyable tasting experiences for all who visit the San Luis Obispo Coast in person. Looking to further expand upon its hospitality program, particularly for those unable to travel, Tolosa has launched its virtual tasting program, Tolosa Uncorked. Led by Virtual Ambassador Faith Comé, a wine hospitality professional with a passion for the Central Coast, Tolosa Uncorked invites guests to discover new wines through an interactive, educational and, most importantly, fun virtual tasting while connecting with family, friends or colleagues.
“As a company built around bringing people together through the world of wine, it’s important for us to continue that commitment to our customers, regardless of restrictions on travel and in-person gatherings,” said President & CEO June McIvor. “We offer Tolosa Uncorked as a seamless way to extend the Tolosa experience beyond our winery walls, inviting wine enthusiasts to join a fun, engaging way to get to know Tolosa in the intimacy of their own homes. It’s also designed to provide businesses a way to entertain clients or offer team building for employees, no travel required.”
Each Tolosa Uncorked experience includes wines, tasting notes and background information on the winery. Supplies are shipped to the participants prior to the virtual tasting. The virtual tasting lasts about 60 minutes and is hosted by Tolosa’s Virtual Ambassador Faith Comé, a former banking professional who has spent the last nine years working for top wineries along the Central Coast. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have Faith leading this program, sharing her dynamic personality and passion for the region’s terroir and cool-climate varieties with everyone who participates,” added McIvor. “Whether a guest visits Tolosa in person or joins Faith for our new virtual tasting offering, we are proud that our standards for hospitality and luxury remain the same. Our goal is for every person to experience an authentic taste of Tolosa.”
Tolosa Uncorked can be scheduled by contacting Virtual Ambassador Faith Comé at 805-782-0500 x144 or [email protected]. Attendees can choose from pre-selected 3- and 4-packs of wine or customize their wine selection. The wines must be purchased in advance for delivery prior to the tasting. Participants must be 21 years or older.
Cowboy dreams of owning a cattle ranch brought Robin Baggett to California’s Edna Valley over 40 years ago. The cold Pacific wind and soils from ancient seabed to limestone made him realize he was on a frontier of a different sort.

Founded in 1998 and guided by the core values of integrity, teamwork and meticulous craftsmanship, Tolosa is committed to creating complex, balanced and nuanced wines that are the purest expressions of Edna Valley. The Tolosa winemaking team combines traditional winemaking techniques and cutting-edge technology to achieve the purest translation of place to taste.
