Cucamonga Valley

Cucamonga Valley

In the early 1900s, the Cucamonga Valley was one of California’s most important wine regions. While most of its vineyards have given way to suburban development, the valley’s wine tradition endures. The area is known for Zinfandel and warm weather varietals and earned designation as an official American Viticultural Area. At Rancho Cucamonga’s Joseph Filippi Winery & Vineyards, you can take tours of this fifth-generation family operation, whose wine inspired the Grateful Dead song “Pride of Cucamonga.” Or in Mira Loma, taste the Zinfandels and Rhône varietals at historic Galleano Winery, which opened in 1933.
