Dino was born into a Lodi farming family and began raising row crops, such as tomatoes and beets, at a young age. The knowledge and experience he gained during those early years earned him an invitation to be a grape buyer for Benzinger Winery. After nine years of plying his trade at Benzinger Winery, Dino moved to Fetzer Winery in 1993, where he established a quality grape supply for the winery from all across the state. In 2002, Dino partnered with Abundance Winery in Sonoma, California, but a year later, Dino chose to pursue his dream of creating wines using the grapes from his own vineyards, so he bought out the partnership with Abundance and moved the winery to his hometown, Lodi. After developing the Abundance brand for eight years, Dino opened the current Abudance Vineyards tasting room in 2007.
