A Rich History
and Pioneering Spirit

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, where Jack developed his love for agriculture, ranching and the cowboy way of life.

Then in 1983, while still maintaining a working cattle ranch, 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. Although the property was sold in 2020, Jack still utilizes the grapes from these vineyards and produces his wine at the winery he built.

Today Galante is recognized as one of the premier wine producers in Monterey County, and all of California.
