In Loving Memory of Co-Founder Howard Mozeico

Friends of Et Fille,

I am writing to share sad news.

Howard Mozeico, Co-Owner and Winemaker of Et Fille Wines, died on April 13 at age 70 as the result of a tractor accident on his beloved property. While his death is sudden and unexpected, he died working on the land that he loved where he built his home, small vineyard, and garden. Howard is survived by his wife of 49 years, Mona, daughter Jessica, and recent granddaughter Gabriella.

Howard was a software engineer until chasing his winemaking passion and co-founding Et Fille Wines in 2003. Howard loved so many of our Friends of Et Fille, was grateful for the support that allowed him to pursue his love of wine and family, and would have liked to have said thank you before exiting.

Wherever you may be, I ask you to please raise a glass of Et Fille and honor your memory of him. I deeply appreciate the supportive messages I have received, but please know I am simply too shocked and sad to reply quite yet. 

 

With A Broken But Grateful Heart,

Jessica
