Le Vigne Winery has hired Terry Culton as winemaker
Le Vigne Winery has hired Terry Culton as winemaker. Terry is a top winemaker in Paso Robles with an extensive and impressive resume. He has worked with several well-known wineries throughout coastal California and Oregon including Peachy Canyon Winery, Adelaida Cellars, Calera Wine Company, and Willamette Valley Vineyards. “I am excited about the future of Le Vigne and for the opportunity to work with the Filippini family and their stellar estate vineyards. The family has a long history of providing impeccable care for their guests just as they care for their land, vineyards and crew. I am proud to be joining this team and to produce boutique wines from this estate,” says Terry.
Terry has expertise with a diverse portfolio of grape varieties and production techniques. Given his track record of producing wines consistently rated 90+, it is no surprise that he was named a “Top-Flight Winemaker” by Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate. “When I first met Terry, I was incredibly impressed by his outgoing personality,” says Walter Filippini, owner of Le Vigne Winery, “and after tasting his wines, I immediately knew that he was the person I wanted as our winemaker. I believe he will greatly enhance the tasting room experience for our visitors as well as our wines.”
About Le Vigne Winery
Le Vigne Winery is located in the heart of the Estrella District in Paso Robles, California and has operated within the same family since its inception. The property, purchased from the country music star Buck Owens in the 1960’s, was planted with the first set of vines in 1982 when the Paso Robles wine industry was in its infancy. Three estate vineyards totaling 132 acres, with over 88 acres currently under vine, feature more than 15 varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Tannat, Corvina and Petite Sirah, to name a few. The tasting room will be celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, having opened for business in 1995, and is open daily. Le Vigne Winery is the culmination of a love of food, wine and family shared by owners Walter and Sylvia Filippini.
