Dalla nostra famiglia ad il vosteo. Salute!
Temecula has had its share of history, and even knowledge pour through its valley over the last 30+ years.
In that time there have been several winemakers who have made their mark along the way, but there is a new generation who have had the chance to learn and follow those same pioneers. Today some of those same enthusiastic vintners are making their own mark into the record books of award winning wines…
Originally from San Diego with family roots in San Luis Obispo, and Paso Robles, Erick Erno first moved to the Temecula Valley in 1995 with his parents and two brothers. Erick got his first taste for the wine industry while he was an eager college student, since he was so intrigued he found himself a part-time job. In 2008 he started working at Filsinger Vineyards & Winery, and he Began a career that has never stopped flowing.
Erick equates to his foundation from working with M. Tingley for nearly half his career, who taught him that “It takes an abundance of beer, to make truly great wine“. Today he uses his past experience and passion as inspiration for every wine he makes, while each harvest is important as the last, he nurtures each grape down to every bottle of wine. With his “hands on attitude” he gained the opportunity to see every aspect from beginning to end, once a consumer and now a wine-maker he has climbed through the ranks as a vintner.
Always surrounded by his wonderful family, wife, and children, he is a wine-maker to watch.
Salute, Erick Erno. Can’t wait to see what you pour us next..!
