In 1973, the year Turrentine Brokerage was founded, California crushed just over 1 million tons of grapes for wine. Today, that number is rapidly approaching 4 million. Over these 40 years, we have witnessed extensive change within the industry while passing the torch from Dan Turrentine to Bill Turrentine and now on to Steve Fredricks. The company has grown from one employee to 21 in that time continues to expand. With great appreciation, we thank all of you who have worked with us over the last 40 years and look forward to the next 40. Cheers!
