GINO L. FILIPPI

Gino L. Filippi was merely 4 years old the first time he picked grapes forty-some years ago in the family's vineyards. Growing up among the vines and wines in the Cucamonga-Guasti district has provided the 4th generation vintner a unique blend of grapegrowing, winemaking and wine marketing experience.

In 1995, the U.S. Dept. of Treasury approved "Cucamonga Valley" as an official American Viticultural Area. This was the result of a petition written and filed by Gino. He is co-owner of J Filippi Winery, and developed a relationship in 2001 with Enologist Marc LURTON of the LURTON wine family of Bordeaux. They created Deux Mondes "Two Worlds" Reserve 2003, the first ultra-premium red blend grown and produced in the Cucamonga Valley.

Since 1996, his "Off the Vine" column has appeared in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin newspaper of Ontario, California. He is wine writer for Inland Living Magazine inlandlivingmagazine.com. Gino's articles have highlighted a wide range of wine subjects, from Cucamonga-Guasti area vintners – past and present – to the famous chateaux of Bordeaux and beyond.

Gino also is involved with the Los Angeles International Wines & Spirits Competition, and is a Member of the Los Angeles County Fair Association Board.

He serves as business development consultant and travels to Bordeaux and other wine regions. Gino's passion and perseverance in promoting the wines and vines is to be commended. His ongoing efforts provide the community a significant remnant of its viticultural heritage. Please visit Ginoffvine.wordpress.com
