A.J. and Jen Filipelli & John and Kirsti Harley are the co-founders of INIZI Wines. The name INIZI came from their belief that a bottle of wine begins in the vineyard. They believe that wine should reflect not only the variety of the grape, but also the place it was grown, and the farming applied to the vineyard. Learn more about them here.
