  • About
    Bovino Vineyards Home of Joludi and gen·er·os·i·ty Estate Wines.
    Joludi, pronounced (Joe-Lu-Dee) is a tribute to the winery owner Dan's parents Joe and Ludrie for their hard work and perseverance. Lovingly called Jo and Ludi by friends and family, their roots have humble beginnings in the farming industry dating back to 1949. Joe and Ludrie's strong worth ethic and legacy is reflected within Dan and his endeavors.

    Bovino Vineyards along with its Estate Brands, Joludi and gen·er·os·i·ty, strive to provide great wines to its customers and also give back generously to charitable causes and the community. "Maintain an Attitude of Gratitude" is Dan's favorite saying.

    Café bovino opened in September 2019, and has become a favorite of locals and out of towners alike. We have a tapas style menu plus weekly lunch specials. Come for the views, stay for the wine and food!
