Winemaker ~ Peter Cron
It was my fortunate pleasure to have been introduced to the Filipponi family in the early 1990s. The wonderful close family bond and heritage of this family on the Central Coast is legendary. They have given me the opportunity to make wines that I feel best showcase the Central Coast.
Great wines are made in the vineyard and I am fortunate enough to guide these grapes through the wine making process. From the cool coastal valleys to the warm rolling hills of North County, the Central Coast is an amazing and diverse wine growing region. Here at Filipponi Ranch we strive to make wines that are true expressions of the varietal and the vintage. Please enjoy these wines with friends and family, or people that you would like to be friends with. Friends, food and of course wine, that is life here on the Central Coast.
