About Galante Vineyards

Galante Vineyards, known for producing some of California’s finest wines, will take the stage in this unique culinary and wine experience. Jack Galante, with a rich history of cattle ranching, brings his western heritage to the forefront of his winemaking. From their hand-tooled leather wine labels, to their hand-etched and painted wine bottles by western artists, Galante Vineyards wines reflect the rugged elegance and craftsmanship synonymous with their western lifestyle. All Galante wines originate in estate vineyards of the highest quality, where the finest agricultural standards are applied and adhered to. Known for their bold Bordeaux style wines, each bottle they produce embodies the characteristics of these unique vineyards, exhibiting the natural flavors that are born from the land.

From the Horse's Mouth

We loved chatting with the ranch hands and learning all about the history of C Lazy U. Special call out for Ally who was so friendly and showed us an excellent and adventurous ride all while making us feel welcome. Spencer's stories were fantastic and we appreciated him sharing his experiences all while having a great time exploring the trails. Franny was so helpful and attentive during the clinical sessions. I took lessons as a kid and never got so much one-on-one help with my posture and horsemanship. Though we were rusty, she made us feel so comfortable. We were both nervous but she put us immediately at ease. Thanks to the ranch hands for such a wonderful experience!
