Guest blog by Winemaker Joe Cafaro of Cafaro Cellars

This will mark the twenty-first year for Cafaro Cellars, established 1986. It hardly seems possible to me. In 1996 my wife Libby and I had just acquired our own vineyard, and the oldest of our three children was just entering high school. It was a landmark year.

From Bracero to Cellar Foreman to Winemaker - A Story of Honor and Wine

Honorio Ramirez-Mata was born in September of 1959 in San Salvador de los Ahorcados, Guanajuato Mexico.  This small village did not offer much of a future for anyone.  People were forced to live on a day to day basis. This was the way of life as they knew it. 

At a very young age, Honorio was taught by his father, Fabian, that the only way to survive was to live and work in the city.  Which is just what he did. Fabian lived and worked in Mexico City and would send money back to his family in Guanajuato.
