THE GUIDE I TASTING ROOMS

Meet the Winemaker

ROLANDO HERRERA, CO-OWNER AND
WINEMAKER AT MI SUEÑO WINERY,
INVITES YOU TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A TASTING IN THE
CELLAR. SIP HIS WINE AND LEARN
MORE ABOUT HIS INSPIRING STORY.

Q:
A:

When Rolando Herrera moved to
California from Mexico to finish
high school, he never imagined
he'd end up owning a Napa Valley
winery. His winemaking career
began with a humble job -
breaking up rocks at Stag's Leap
Wine Cellars in Napa - and
evolved into a position as cellar
master three years later. Today, he
is the co-owner and winemaker at
Mi Sueño ("my dream"), producing
acclaimed Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah,
Tempranillo, Rosé, and the El Llano
red blend.

What first drew you to winemaking?
I loved it from the first moment I set foot in the
cellar. I was attracted by the beauty, the aromas,
the different tanks and barrels. It was a beautiful world of discovery and I wanted to learn
everything.

ILLUSTRATION: SVETA MEDVEDIEVA

Was there a particular wine that really blew
you away?
I remember having dinner with some friends and
co-workers, and I brought a 1984 Stag's Leap Cask
23. That moment - the company, the food, the
wine - that's when I truly fell in love with wine.
What makes the
Napa Valley special
as a wine region?
The microclimate
here is the greatest
gift we have. For that
reason, I believe Napa
Valley is the best region in the world for
our grape varieties.
