“Life is a building process. Building on previous experiences, shaping your environment as your environment shapes you. All my life — since I was seven or eight and painting on sheetrock — I’ve embraced the pure joy of creativity.
When I started thinking about this winery project, I approached it the same way I’ve approached every project: I asked myself how I could creatively infuse something different — something that no one else is doing. I set out to buy the best acreage I could afford, hire the best people, conceive a wine-making facility and tasting room like no other, and sustainably husband the land, knowing it would take many years to realize my vision.
Wine making is like painting: Every time you begin a painting, your mindset should be, ‘This is going to be the best painting I can make.’ In the end it may be . . . or it may not be. You won’t know until it’s finished and others can experience it with you. At Furioso, we are trying, every vintage, to make world-class wines, and every vintage has the potential to be our best yet. One must wait and see.”
As you walk through either the Tasting Room or the Jory House you’ll discover a curated selection of artwork: pieces accumulated over Giorgio’s 52 years of collecting, in addition to photography and sculpture by Giorgio himself. We invite you to visit us and experience the intersection of art, wine, and famiglia.
