I had the pleasure of visiting Rancho de Philo winery this weekend for the first time and I'm very pleased with what I found! Rancho de Philo Winery is located in the foothills of the Cucamonga Valley, 45 miles east of Los Angeles. It was founded in 1975 by Philo Biane after he retired as President/CEO of Brookside Vineyard Co., then one of California's oldest wineries.

The inside joke for LA viewers is that no such train route exists. Rancho Cucamonga also (3 comments)
