Rosa Fierro Cellars (Winemaker & Owner)

Rosa (Rosie) Fierro was born and raised in the Livermore Valley and started her professional career as a legal assistant in a San Francisco law firm. A side job working in a Livermore tasting room in 2009 and befriending winemakers, however, spawned her interest to winemaking. She learned the craft by working with winemaking friends and, as she says, “. . . we were pressing some port in the garage, and I was just totally hooked after that.” Rosie was soon making her own wines at a crush pad in Livermore and was fortunate in working side by side with some outstanding winemakers there who served as mentors and teachers.

She founded Rosa Fierro Cellars in 2014 in Livermore and considers the winery a family project: her mother works the tasting room and her son helps with crush. She calls on the family each time there’s a new vintage to taste.

The winery is known for a number of its wines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, and Primativo. Some of the wine labels reflect Rosie’s Hispanic heritage, examples being Quatro, a red blend, and de la luna, a Merlot.

Outside of the winery, Rosie loves photography, dogs, music, and, of course, wine.
