In 1968 at the young age of 16, Reynaldo Robledo, left his home state of Michoacan, Mexico to work the beautiful vineyards of Napa Valley. It was at the Christian Brothers Winery that Reynaldo met his first vineyard. That same day he learned to prune his first vine. He spent the following three decades working in several vineyards learning more and more about this unique type of farming. His experience grew until he was eventually managing vineyards with hundreds of acres and many men. In 1996, Reynaldo formed his own vineyard managment business, Robledo Vineyard Managment, LLC. As his skills in the vineyards continued to evolve so did his affection for the product he was producing.
During those first years the family purchased fourteen vineyards, totaling approximately 350 acres, in Sonoma, Napa and Lake Counties. Together, the Robledo family opened the first winery established by a former Mexican migrant worker in October 2003. Although they still sell most of their fruit to other wineries, they now produce an impressive portfolio of premium wines.
We think every bottle of wine produced by Robledo Family Winery is a small triumph. The quality of our wine displays viticulturalist Reynaldo Robledo's skills of grape culture. He overcame his humble beginnings as an immigrant field worker to become one of the msot successful vineyard consultants and winery owners in California Wine Country. More than anything, Robledo Family Winery, is a success because Reynaldo shares his knowledge and passion with his children and grandchildren.
