HISPANIC WINERY DIRECTORY

HISPANIC WINERIES OF NAPA AND SONOMA.

Hispanic culture has deep roots in Napa and Sonoma Wine Country. Many of the local wineries we visit are some of the first Mexican and Spanish owned wineries in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and the wine is absolutely delicious!

A selection of some of the Hispanic rooted wineries we might visit during the tour include:

Ceja Winery

Arriving in the Napa Valley in 1967 as braceros, the Ceja family is now producing some of the finest wine in the famous Carneros region. Carneros is close to San Pablo Bay, and the cooling fog keeps the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from ripening too quickly, creating the ideal climate for fine wine. Their amazing tale is a true American success story, and their welcome is as warm as the sun that shines down upon their slice of earthly heaven.

Robledo Winery

Robledo Winery is found in the Sonoma Valley, and their story is much like the Cejas’. Also beginning as farm workers, the Robledo Family now owns over 200 acres of grapevines. The wine is specially designed to be “food friendly” and their “Seven Brothers” Sauvignon Blanc is just one of the award winning wines you will taste during a visit to Robledo. Can you guess why their Sauvignon Blanc is called: Seven Brothers?

Mi Sueño Winery

Mis Sueño is Spanish for “My Dream,” and these words perfectly describe why Rolando Herrera became the owner of his own winery. Born in the Mexican state of Michoacan, his family arrived in California in 1975. Beginning his wine career with the famed vintner Warren Winiarski at Stag’s Leap, he now produces small lots of extraordinary wine you will taste at his facility in South Napa.

Historic Sonoma Plaza

An eight acre natural jewel in the heart of Sonoma, the Plaza is lined with historic adobes and is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Your guide will point out historic buildings and tell stories of the Bear Flag Revolt: the curious military action that ended Mexican rule over California. You will also hear tales of General Mariano Vallejo, the most famous of all Californios, and a man beloved as a great citizen of both Mexico and America.

San Francisco Solano Mission

Now a California State Park, this is the last of 21 Spanish missions that once stretched from San Diego to Sonoma. Beautiful, historic, with excellent exhibits, the San Francisco Solano Mission is a treasure located right on the Historic Sonoma Plaza.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
