About Alonso Family Vineyard

Le Chene

Juan Alonso at the Alonso Family Vineyard – Agua Dulce, CA

Juan Alonso, owner and head chef of the renowned French Restaurant, Le Chene for almost 40 years, began operating Alonso Family Vineyard in 1995.

Against the advice of many who thought the region was unsuitable for a high quality vineyard, Juan has persevered and continued to grow the fine reputation of Alonso Family Vineyard and gone on to produce award winning wine ever since.

Through a partnership with Jasper Dickson, of Angeleno Wine Company, Alonso Family Vineyard has broadened its reach and is bringing ever more award winning wines to a wider audience.

As Jasper says, “There are no words to articulate the stunning beauty of the vineyard in the early morning during harvest. It is still cold enough to see your breath and you need to wear gloves, even though it’s summer. Juan is the heart and soul of Angeleno. We consider him Angeleno’s real winemaker, as the character of his vineyard is what shines through in our wines.”

About Angeleno Wine Company

Jasper Dickson was born and raised in Northern California. His father was a home winemaker who would take Jasper along when he would go wine tasting. It was there that the seeds were sown: the smell of fermenting wine, the vibrant greens of surrounding vineyards. All made an impression that would last a lifetime.

Soon, Jasper moved to Los Angeles, met Juan Alonso, and fell in love with the Alonso Family Vineyard. This, combined with a deep dive into Los Angeles’ forgotten wine history, convinced him that the city could have and deserved to have its own local wine. The stage was set and Angeleno Wine Company was born.

Amy Luftig Viste grew up outside Cincinnati, Ohio. She moved steadily west over time, pursuing a career in public policy and health care access. Along the way, Amy fell in love with wine, and became obsessed after volunteering with California winemakers during harvest. She decided by the end of the first day that nothing was more fun than cleaning wine barrels, shoveling grapes out of a fermenter, picking fruit in the earliest hours of the day and spending countless sober and not-so-sober hours with the soulful, hard-working types who gravitate towards the winemaking path.
