Hugo Maldonado
Maldonado Vineyards Napa Valley
Nestled in the northernmost tip of the Napa Valley, you’ll find Maldonado Family Vineyards; a small Mexican-American family owned winery. Owner/Winemaker Hugo Maldonado comes from a vineyard management background, working alongside his father Lupe Maldonado and learning the importance of vineyard care at Newton Vineyards. The winery is in the form of a cave looking south toward the Palisade Mountain range in Calistoga. Though small, it accounts for the roughly 6000 case production that Maldonado Family Vineyards currently produces under the Maldonado Label and their second label, Farm Worker.
About the Winery
Maldonado Vineyards
Nearly fifty years ago, Lupe Maldonado was living in a small farming community in Michoacán, Mexico. After moving to California, Lupe began working in the vineyards of Napa Valley. He made a name for himself in the valley as a hard, dedicated worker and was invited to join the team at a new winery, Newton Vineyard.
