The proudly Family-owned Terlato Wine Group based in a Chicago suburb is a holding company for several independent businesses specializing in the marketing and production of exceptional wines. They are probably best known for pioneering the popularity of Pinot Grigio in the United States. That’s no small accomplishment…
The Terlatos started out in the wine business as retailers in 1955. Over the years, they have been involved in every facet of the business as wine distributors and importers, as well as winery owners and vineyard developers. No other company in the industry has successfully operated throughout all channels. This vertical integration and diversity of experience shaped the Terlato family’s unique perspective and approach to luxury wine marketing, sales and production.
Chairman Anthony Terlato’s philosophy that “Quality Endures” has guided the growth of the Terlato family’s businesses and provided opportunities to lead, rater than follow, industry trends.
In California the noteworthy Terlato portfolio includes familiar names including Chimney Rock Winery, Rutherford Hill Winery, Terlato Family Vineyards and Sanford Winery and Vineyards.
