Right next door to Green River Brewing & Taproom is the Winters Aggregate. Although it may not be the most well-known business in town, it’s deeply rooted in Winters with a resume of service that stretches back over 50 years.

The business first opened as Bertinoia Winters Aggregate back in 1969 when Don Bertinoia started mining gravel out of Putah Creek. He then began selling the gravel, and this diamond-in-the-rough business made a business out of selling the rough.

The business temporarily closed in January. On April 4, co-owners Juan Mera and Don’s grandson Adam Bertinoia reopened the business as Winters Aggregate.

Alongside the gravel they’ve always sold, the Winters Aggregate now sells and delivers a wide variety of landscaping materials at prices that keep their customers smiling.

“We’ve been around for a little while, but we are kind of hidden down here by the creek,” said Bertinoia. “We’ve got everything from pavestone to sand and concrete. Pretty much any kind of landscape material you need. We’re backyard warriors.”

Whatever the backyard — or front yard — project Winters residents are embarking on, this generational family business has them covered. As difficult and frustrating these projects can be, the Winters Aggregates mitigates the hair-pulling with top-notch customer service.

“Whether you need gravel or a hole that needs filling, whatever you need, just give us a call and we’ll deliver the material wherever you need it. Our experience is all good from our side and we haven’t really gotten any complaints from customers, but if we do, we’ll try to correct them,” said Bertinoia. “We put the same effort into everybody that does business with us and we’re on a first name basis with customers. We’re honest, don’t beat around the bush and are fair and friendly.”

If one is interested in rocking on with this earth moving business, it’s located at 4499 Putah Creek Rd. or call 530-795-2994. Stay up-to-date with the business by searching “Winters Aggregate” on Facebook.

Updated to reflect on April 4, co-owners Juan Mera and Adam Bertinoia reopened the business as Winters Aggregate.
