Ignacio Gallegos, Sr. came to the United States in 1956 in search of work, but found a passion. The Gallegos family is among the first Mexican families to settle in St. Helena, CA. Even after his recent passing, the legacy of Ignacio Gallegos, Sr. lives on in the next two generations of the family. The same fire is alive and well at Gallegos Vineyards & Wines as they run a vineyard management company as well as a wine company. The Gallegos family believes wine is made in the vineyard and they cultivate and nurture their wine from vine to bottle.
