Tony Terlato

The Terlato name is synonymous with quality, thanks in no small part to the work of Anthony "Tony" Terlato. Over more than half a century, he has reshaped the luxury wine business in the United States as an importer, marketer and producer of many of the world's finest wines. As the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "In short, Tony Terlato is one of the most accomplished wine personalities on the planet."

The Vineyards

The Terlatos have tirelessly invested in new vineyards, vineyard replantings and innovative growing approaches in top appellations, and in state-of-the-art equipment at each of their wineries. Through long-lasting friendships with many vineyard and winery owners, they have assembled peerless management teams and wine-producing groups.

This commitment has resulted in quantum leaps of quality at all of their properties. With these pieces in place, they challenge their winemakers to produce distinctive, high-quality wines representing each of the most important grape varieties from the most important appellations. This is the vision brought to their namesake label, Terlato Vineyards.

The Terlato Family

When Tony and his sons, Bill and John, became winery owners and vintners in 1996, they started with one goal in mind: excellence. The concept was to produce quality wines that were as important as those the Terlato family imported and marketed during the last half century.
