"Hear the family tradition behind the wines being poured and enjoy the beautiful setting of this new venue. We are excited to be here."

Family Winemakers of California was established in 1990 in response to a need for public policy involvement for the small wine producers of California. The association has become a strong force in the wine industry, lobbying for wine producer rights, and has an active membership of over 325 California wineries.
