Tom Dillian is a fourth generation Amador County farmer. His great grandfather Alessio Dal Porto first purchased this land in 1917. Tom, his twin brother Bill and older brother Jerry replanted the original vineyard in Zinfandel grapes in 1972. At a young age Tom learned the business of grape growing and winemaking while working for his father Mike D'Agostini at the historic D'Agostini winery. Here Tom developed a passion for the business that has stayed with him through the years. Using the knowledge he gained in his youth, Tom managed several vineyards for local grape growers while continuing to farm his own ranch. In 1991 he began making wine from the fruit of the Dillian ranch. The home winemaking ventures became more and more successful in the following years. This planted the idea in Tom’s head of one day owning his own winery and continuing the legacy handed down to him from his father. In December of 2003 that dream became a reality as Dillian Wines opened its doors. The tasting room is modeled after the early 1900's home built by Tom's grandfather and retains the rural flavor of the area. So, come and meet the family and enjoy the wine and hospitality that makes a trip to Shenandoah Valley a pleasant and memorable experience Read less
