For 50 years, the Prospero Company has shared the Prospero family hobby, winemaking, with local home winemakers.
In 1972, Prospero founder Tony Prospero started selling California wine grapes from a fruit stand helping home winemakers produce their own high-quality wine.
More than 25 years later in 1999, Prospero expanded to become a bonded winery producing affordable, everyday wines to locals.
Today Prospero Winery continues our tradition of selling mainstream wine. We also cater to commercial businesses by offering wine grapes and juice, bulk wine, and co-packing.
