The story of persistence in seeking the American Dream never gets old. And Mario Bazán Cellars is a true inspiration.
The roots of Mario Bazán Cellars began in 1973 when Mario left his native home in Oaxaca, Mexico for the Napa Valley. Initially it was just for a paycheck, but Mario was instantly charmed by the Valley’s beauty and decided to focus his life’s work in the vineyards.
Over the past four decades Mario strengthened his skills, from laborer to grape grower, while working for many prestigious wineries including Joseph Phelps, Robert Mondavi, Opus One and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. With a depth of experience under his belt, he decided to fulfill his entrepreneurial dream and launched Mario Bazán Vineyard Management Company in 1997.
With his wife, Gloria Bazán, the pillar of all business activities and consumer relations, they launched Mario Bazán Cellars where they produce two wines: Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. Under his intense stewardship and high standards set for himself and his workers, the wines of Mario Bazán Cellars have received rave critical reviews since the inaugural vintage and have become the favorites of an ardent group of loyal followers.
Crafted with love, Mario and Gloria believe wine is the perfect thing to gather family and friends together, and they have built a proud legacy around their passion and dedication to grapegrowing and winemaking. When you drink their wine, you become part of the Mario Bazán family.
