Home Winemaker Depot’s Mission

Home Winemaker Depot, a subsidiary of Prospero Equipment Corp., has been maintaining the home winemaking tradition since 1972. Our quality equipment and supplies allow home winemakers to continue their home winemaking locally and nationally. As a leader in the industry, the Prospero family looks forward to keeping the tradition alive for generations to come.


We started as a fruit stand selling California wine grapes during the fall harvest and continue to hold onto our roots as we supply home winemaking equipment and expand into the world of wine aficionados.

Back in 1972, Prospero founder Tony Prospero began selling winery equipment sourced from Italy to home winemakers helping them continue their European lifestyle here in America.

We broadened our portfolio to include commercial wine making equipment in the 1980’s, providing automated equipment to small wineries.

Today we maintain our dedication to local home winemakers and hobbyists who enjoy the home winemaking tradition. The Prospero Family plans to serve our long-standing customers for years to come.
