Dominick and Gloria Chirichillo’s choice of name for their winery is a reflection of their commitment to their Italian heritage and the tradition of family winemaking. In 1955 in New York, Dominick who is called Domenico in Italian was introduced to these traditions by his Nonno (grandfather), Domenico Giovinazzo. In the basement of their home was a wine press that Nonno showed Dominick; passing down from one generation to another the love of handcrafting wine. Affordable, delicious Santa Cruz Mountain wines, great tasting room, wonderful owners/winemakers. Looking forward to seeing this winery expand and grow. Kudos, and wishing the team the very best on their latest wines and their new tasting room location in San Carlos. Open Fri., Sat. & Sun. Domenico Winery is a participant of the Golden Gate Winery Experience. Domenico offers a two for one tastings.
Wine is not just for wine geeks and snobs. Don’t be intimidated. Always feel free to ask questions, joke around, and make yourself at home at wineries and tasting rooms. They are designed to be enjoyed.
