Inscription.  This is one of five wineries surviving out of 60 such operations which once dominated the cultural livelihood of the Cucamonga Valley. Winery cofounder John B. Ellena focused after 1949 on producing wine vinegar almost exclusively, and the Regina Grape Products Co. was the nation's leading producer of wine vinegar. Along with nationwide distribution of wine vinegar, the winery took on the flavor of a destination theme park with daily tours and an annual grape festival. In 1968, the state's first winery restaurant was opened. The property was purchased in 1993 by the City of Rancho Cucamonga. Although owned by the City, the Filippi family leases the property and it is a working winery, reception center, and gift store where one can enjoy wine tasting.
