Our Story

"Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance."
 -- Benjamin Franklin

Filipo Marc Winery was established in October of 1999. The original owners started Filipo Marc Winery following the wineries they visited in Canada that allowed people to make their own wine and add the ability to custom label the bottles.

February 11, 2004, the ownership of the winery was taken over by  Tressa & Gerard Giacona. When the winery was changing hands the selection of wine consisted of 8 traditional red, white and blush wines.

Today, Filipo Marc Winery boasts over 70 varieties of wine with more to come in the very near future consisting of many of the standard wine lovers selections like Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and yes White Zinfandel along with many more exciting wines from grape of other countries and blends including fruit like Raspberries, Mango, Peach and Strawberries to make exciting variations of the traditional wines.

We have added a make your own area where visitors can come and make their own wine under our supervision in stainless steel tanks from Italy, not plastic buckets and glass jugs. You will make the wines exactly the same way we do, but on a smaller scale.

We offer the visitors to our store the opportunity to sample wines before they buy at no charge or for a fee you may book a private wine tasting event to experience, educate and enjoy in a setting with your closest friends, family and/or business associates.

The printing ability went from letters on labels utilizing inkjet printing to the present day digital laser printing of  labels that we create incorporating your photos, corporate images or clip art images to enhance the presentation of your wine bottles whether its one bottle for a birthday gift or 100's of split bottles for your weddings or large corporate events.. 

You must visit to appreciate how much there is to see and experience. Filipo Marc Winery follows the simple promise, we promise to leave the snob & connoisseur out of the formula so if you are a novice you will feel respected and for the seasoned veteran, if we don't have the answer and you do, we will both be richer for the experience.
