Winery Open House
Vizzini Farms Winery was founded in 2005 by Tom & Deborah Vizzina with the goal of bringing premium quality wines to Central Alabama. At the time most Alabama wineries focused primarily on producing Muscadine wines, but Tom's vision included varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Chardonnay. The key philosophy of the winery is to maintain the highest degree of excellence in the winemaking practice to allow the wines to fully express the various American vineyards that are their source. Our goal is to provide our customers with high quality, fruit forward wines made in a manner that preserve the flavors that are naturally existent in the grapes.
