At the age of 16, Reynaldo Robledo came to Napa, working as a migrant vineyard worker, earning $1.10 an hour and $1.50 on Sundays. Learning to prune a vine and developing a passion for the wine business, his experience grew until he was eventually managing vineyards with hundreds of acres and many men.
In 1984, after years of toiling in the vineyards, Reynaldo and Maria Robledo purchased their first piece of land in Napa, Rancho Rincon de Los Carneros (named in the 1800’s when California was part of Mexico). It is here where the family sources its fruit to produce its Pinot Noir and is where Reynaldo taught his children to farm the land. From a very young age the Robledo children learned the responsibility of a family business and of letting Mother Nature work her magic.
With 200 vineyard acres throughout the Carneros region of the Napa Valley and Sonoma as well as Lake County, the Family produces its Estate wines. As farmers, they understand the importance of terrior and have worked diligently to match each vineyard's soil composition with the grape varietal that it is best suited for. As vintners, they understand the importance of Mother Nature, interfering very little with the winemaking process.
