    The history of winemaking in the Renzoni family dates to 1886, when Robert's great grandfather Federico began working in the vineyards near Fano, a small Italian village on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. While working in the vineyards, Federico and his father began making wine for family and friends. At 18, Federico decided to become a commercial fisherman along the shores of the Adriatic Sea. He soon became aware of a need for commercial fishermen in America, and emigrated there in 1912, where he worked in New London, Connecticut’s fishing industry for two years. He then relocated to Buffalo, New York and entered into the wine & cordial business with his brother-in-law, Romeo Battistoni. Unfortunately, that venture was short lived, as they were forced out of business by the advent of Prohibition in 1918. With Prohibition having closed their cordial business, Federico and Romeo were forced into another line of work. They turned to the home construction business, where they were very successful for eleven years. Their success was thwarted again in 1929, this time by the onset of the Great Depression. Prohibition ended in 1933 and Federico and Romeo returned to a variant of their first business venture together, this time in the form of a wine distributing business. Robert's grandfather, Domenic, joined them in 1934 and together they began importing wines from Italy, France and Germany. By this time, the American wine industry was resurgent; having recovered from Prohibition. It was at this time that the trio began doing business with a number of Italian immigrants who had settled in California. These immigrants would go on to become some of the more famous winemakers in California, and included August Sebastiani, Lorenzo Cella (Roma Wines) and Cesar Mondavi (Charles Krug). Federico died in 1938 and passed his share of the business to his son Domenic, Robert's grandfather. Based in Buffalo, New York, the business continued to thrive. In 1954, Domenic and Romeo formed an alliance with Marvin Sands, then President of the Canandaigua Wine Company, to become the first distributor in the country for Richards Wild Irish Rose. The brand experienced phenomenal success thanks in part to Domenic's marketing ability. Canandaigua Wine Company, now known as Constellation Brands, went on to great success and today sells over 110 million cases of wine and spirits annually. Named for Robert's great-grandfather Federico, his father Frederick assumed control of the family business, then known as the Italian and French Wine Company, in 1972. The business prospered as a wholesale wine and liquor distributorship and eventually covered all of Upstate New York. Today, Robert purchased a beautiful property on De Portola Road in Temecula, and supplemented the existing vineyards with additional plantings in 2006. The winery opened to the general public in the Spring of 2008. The journey to this point has been made possible only by the hard work and dedication of the family members that have gone before us. The Robert Renzoni Vineyard today is a tribute to Federico, Romeo, and Domenic. We are proud to put the Renzoni name on these fines wines as a testament to all that they did to enable each of us to be here today. Alla Familgia!

    Winemaker Robert Renzoni
    As young adults, my brother and I spent many hours working at the family business.
    I formally entered the business in 1989, spending five years in various roles, the last of which was in the sales department. In 1994, our family decided to exit the rapidly consolidating wholesale business and the business was sold. In 1996, I opted to relocate to California, and worked in the wine and liquor industry in Los Angeles for several years. My parents relocated to San Diego, California in 1999.
    After many years apart, parts of our family were once again reunited in Temecula, when my parents and I each moved here in 2004. Once here, the muse of winemaking again beckoned.
