We’ll be joined by Señor Luis Robledo of Robledo Family Winery – an award-winning producer of fine wines from Sonoma.
Robledo Family Winery is a miracle made of long days in the hot sun and a love of the soil. Reynaldo Robledo left his beloved home state of Michoacán, México in 1968. At only sixteen years old, Reynaldo had dreams of one day owning a small plot of land.
He arrived in the beautiful Napa Valley, experiencing with wonder the vast expanse of green that was the Christian Brothers vineyards. That day he learned how to carefully prune his first vine.
Reynaldo spent the next three decades learning every aspect of the winery business – from field hand to managing a large crew. Eventually, he started his own vineyard management company.
Over time, the family purchased fourteen vineyards totaling 350 acres. In October, 2003, Reynaldo and his family opened the first winery established by a former Mexican migrant worker.
We’ll begin our evening with a toast – to friendship and family,
miracles and hard work.

Then, as we learn more about the wonderful Robledo wines,
we’ll begin our dinner:

roasted pecans and dried cranberries tossed in a champagne vinaigrette.

The lovely Dinorah will be here to serenade us with her beautiful voice!
