With great sadness, we regret to inform you that Herman Salerno has passed away.

Herman was a pioneer in the wine industry here in Ramona and one who supported his fellow winemakers. He was an award-winning winemaker and an entertainer to many who visited his winery. His pizza and homemade tomato sauce were always the talk. To visit Salerno Winery with its artwork and friendly environment was a memory you placed in the keepers folder.

For those who would like to pay their respects, Carol Fowler, a close friend of Herman’s, has passed along the following information.

Memorial Service will be held at Bonham Bros. & Stuart Mortuary at 4:00pm. Thursday, May 12th. Followed by a Herman style potluck after at Salerno Winery.
