Doug Fabbioli


The passion that Doug Fabbioli has for making quality wines has been passed down from his paternal grandfather, Leone Fabbioli. When Leone made his wine in the basement of his Elmira home in the 1940s and 50s, he would take special care to sort the fruit, keep the lots of wine separate, and get to know the growers of the fruit before deciding to buy. Doug employs the same time honored traditions of constant care, evaluation of quality, and modern scientific techniques to both grow the grapes, and make the wine at Fabbioli Cellars.
