Fifth Generation

Today my brothers, sister and I are 5th generation vintners building a family wine business for future generations. We still produce Villa Armando, along with newer brands like Lodi Avenue Cellars that we sell domestically and overseas.

We appreciate the importance of our wholesalers, brokers, retailers, on-premise and export partners, so we focus on building these long term relationships.

We hope you’ll enjoy our wines and share them with your family and friends, like our family has done for five generations.
