Gershon Bachus immigrated to the United States in 1922 from Europe with his wife and two daughters. His grandson fulfilled his dream of owning a California vineyard 84 years later. Ken & Christina opened Gershon Bachus Vintners in 2006.
The Founding winemaker here was Michael Tingley. He is well-known in the Temecula Valley and was instrumental in developing the winery from the early plantings. Joe Vizcaino was the assistant under Michael Tingley and became the head winemaker in 2010. Joe also acts as the Director for Gershon Bachus.
