GUGLIELMO WINERY CELEBRATES 90TH ANNIVERSARY
MORGAN HILL, CA (March 11, 2015) - Guglielmo Winery welcomes 2015 as it marks the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Emilio Guglielmo Estate Vineyard and Winery. The Guglielmo family will commemorate the event of their grandfather, Emilio Guglielmo's, signing of the deed to the original 15 acres of land in Morgan Hill, by hosting a black tie celebration at the winery on Saturday, September 12. In addition prizes and special events throughout the year will be planned for both the general public and their wine club members (Guglielmo Wine Group).
Purchased in 1925, Emilio & Emilia Guglielmo, hailing from Italy's Piemonte region, planted the seeds of a dream that still blossoms today. Grandson's George E., Gene, and Gary operate the winery facility that has grown to 82 acres upon the original estate property.
"When our grandfather first purchased the property, it was only 15 acres and the house we grew up in," said George E. Guglielmo, eldest brother and Head Winemaker. "Over time the family was able to purchase the surrounding property, add a larger winemaking facility, tasting room and multi-purpose event center." Gene Guglielmo, Director of Sales and middle brother continues. "After his service in WWII our father, George W., joined the business, he married our mother, Madeline, and together they continued making wines and building the business through their hard work and hospitality." Gary Guglielmo, General Manager and youngest of the three brothers notes "It's not often that any business makes it to 90 years, especially in the same family and at the same location. We're proud of what our family has accomplished and want to celebrate by thanking our loyal customers and welcoming new ones."
