Galante Vineyards

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
The Galantes, in 1983, began growing premium grapes on their property, specializing in Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1994, Jack Galante decided to build a winery and use some of his grapes to produce ultra-premium estate bottled wines. Today Galante is recognized as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Monterey County and all of California. They produce very limited quantities of estate bottled 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from two single vineyards, Red Rose Hill and Blackjack Pasture. They also produce their Rancho Galante from a blend of Cabernet grapes from several of their other vineyard parcels. In addition, they produce extremely limited quantities of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Petit Sirah.
Bright, fresh and lively, their Red Rose Hill explodes with the characteristic cherry and berry flavors of their Carmel Valley vineyards. Their Blackjack Pasture is soft and opulent, combining rich chocolate and black currant flavors with an elegant, long finish. Their Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard parcels wine offers a burst of distinctive fruit flavors with a hint of oak and soft tannins on the finish. Bin fermented and aged in new French oak, their limited production Merlot is lively with concentrated flavors of strawberry and plum. It is available only through the winery. Their Pinot Noir is made from three distinct clones of estate grown grapes.
The true varietal nature of the Sauvignon Blanc grape is expressed in this wine. Abundant with aromas and flavors of peaches and pears, this wine has an ample underlying acidity that provides a crisp and fresh finish. It is available only through the winery. Petit Sirah comes from their entirely hand cultivated Olive Hill vineyard which is adjacent to their winery. The wine imparts a lovely aroma of violets and rose and has expressive flavors of bright cherry and sweet vanilla with light tannins on the finish.

Their wine label is very special to us and reflects their roots and their efforts at Galante Vineyards. At Galante Vineyards their philosophy is to grow the finest grapes possible and let the fruit express itself in the wine. Since all of their grapes are estate grown, each bottle of wine they produce embodies the characteristics of their unique region, exhibiting the natural flavors that are born from the land.
