The Society's wonderful home winemaking and private membership venue is located in the 120-year old Biane Family Winery facility, 10013 8th St., Unit W, Rancho Cucamonga. We have 5500+ sf of space where we have built-out our home winemaking program, set up a designated meeting area with varied seating and decor, and are planning to do so much more. In the near future, we will transform the venue into a small commercial winery and a public tasting room. For the time being, we will continue to build the Society and have fun with our membership.To date, we are producing more than 60 home wines for upwards of 32 Society members. Our current Society membership stands at around 120 and continues to grow! Join us if you have not already.
