The Galante Family has a long history in the Monterey County area of California. Owner Jack Galante's great grandfather, James Frank Devendorf, was the founder of the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea in 1900. He later built the Pine Inn and the prestigious Highlands Inn. In 1969, Jack's parents purchased a 700-acre cattle ranch in rustic Carmel Valley.
Then in 1983, the Galantes began growing premium wine grapes on their property, specializing in Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1994, Jack decided to build a winery and use his own grapes to produce his ultra-premium estate bottled wines. Today Galante is recognized as one of the premier wine producers in Monterey County, and all of California.
