The Flores and Zepeda family grape growing tradition began over 3 decades ago with Salvador Zepeda, Fidencio’s great-grandfather. Salvador was the first to cultivate grapes for the Firestone family in 1974. His son, Armando Zepeda, planted the first vines in Buttonwood Vineyards in 1983. Ever since, Armando has been Grape Master. Through hard work and esfuerzo, the Flores and Zepeda family has mastered the craft of winemaking and become essential to Solvang wine country.
