Over a century ago, my family farmed vineyards and owned a winery in Southern Italy. In the late 1920's my grandparents, father, and mother immigrated to the united States. The friendships made by my father decades ago in the Napa Valley as a winemaker formed the foundation and desire for me to follow his path. I am proud of my heritage and strive to carry on the family tradition.

use the best grapes, best barrels, and make the best wine possible.

In the early 90's I met my wife, who also shared the same passion for wine as I did. Our dream to own a boutique winery became a reality in 2002 when we opened Bruno Cellars in Loomis, California. Our philosophy for the winery is the same as when we were home wine makers. Use the best grapes, best barrels, and make the best wine possible. Our private winery is located below our home. This allows us the convenience to have personal control from the initial crush to final bottling. As unconventional as it sounds, cost is the least significant factor. Our wines labeled "Napa Valley" are 100% Napa Valley grapes. With the lenient blending laws, others will blend grapes from different regions, which can cost up to 90% less. We always state the exact origin of our grapes.

We also farm a vineyard on our property that provides us with some interesting estate blends. It gives our children an appreciation of the difficulty and arduous labor involved with growing grapes. All of the wines are properly aged in our underground cave. No wines are released until they are ready to drink, usually a three-year process.

Bruno cellars produces handcrafted Napa Valley and Placer County wines that boast fruit and just the right amount of french oak. We take great pride in each bottle we make and we hope you will enjoy them too.
