Wine Gang Member of the Month- December

Theres a history Jon & Lynn Guess share with Galante. Introduced to the wines at the Taste of Monterey; Jon was looking for a “nice, upscale” bottle for a gift at Christmas………And so, the love affair began with Blackjack Pasture 11 years ago. Jon fell over the top and Galante has been his go-to ever since.  In fact, 50% of their cellar is Galante wines including a Blackjack vertical beginning with 2005! After this Christmas it will be slightly less tho, as Santa is bringing 50 Saddlepack boxes packaged with 150 Galante wines…. home for the holidays. Lyn is enamored with Bulls Eye High. It was love at first sight, or shall we say taste…. Although, the bottle itself is rather a kick!Their most treasured bottle in the cellar is a vintage 1.5L Hock Magnum from 1994, etched with Red Roses. Presently, it contains 2012 Blackjack, until the next refill - - when Jon will proudly package up his prized Galante bottle in its custom wooden case, and send it back for what will likely be 2013 Blackjack Pasture.  The Guess’s have earned their bragging rights as Foreman in the Wine Gang - but their real claim to fame is the one and only correct answer in the trivia competition at the Wine Gang Muster this year.  “What was only year Blackjack Pasture was not bottled?”

Galante Gazette- November 2015


It’s Back – But Not For Long

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2014 Almond Flat Pinot Noir! I know the wait has been very long but I am sure you will agree that it was worth it! Made from three distinct clones of estate grown grapes, this remarkable vintage created a full-bodied pinot that exhibits contrasting complexities.  Soft leather and boysenberry fills the nose, followed by a bright burst of stewed berries and a hint of vanilla on the palate. It finishes with a soft elegance. Order your supply now as this very limited bottling won’t last long! A FABULOUS Holiday wine!

Holiday Hootch

I know it is unbelievable that another year-end is creeping up on us, but thank goodness we at least have wine to help us get through the holidays and into a new year!

Jack’s Saddlebag – Thanks to All

As you all probably know, we at Galante Vineyards are not big fans of the point rating system for wines. Naturally, we all love to be recognized for our achievements and appreciated for our products, but the point system, especially when frequently driven by advertising, just doesn’t do it! We so much prefer receiving well thought out tasting notes and comments from reviewers and the press. Our favorite recognition, however, comes from all of you – our customers. Once again this year you have chosen the Galante Vineyards Tasting Room and our Cabernet Sauvignon as the Best in Monterey County in the 2015 Golden Pine Cone Awards. All of us here in Carmel love our local paper, the Pine Cone, and its readership, including its on-line free subscription, now tops 30,000! If you haven’t yet subscribed and want to see what a local newspaper should look like, I urge you to check it out. Thanks again to the Carmel Pine Cone readership and to all of you for continuing to enjoy our wines as much as we love to make them for you.

October Member of the Month

This months Gang of the Month is Linda Schultz, a Trailboss from Maine. 
Coast to coast, Linda finds herself sharing our wines with friends & family at home, at the beach, by the lakes.  A newcomer to California, discovering the Carmel Valley AVA is a true diamond in the rough.  "Wine with a little backbone", she calls it. More than anything, she likes a red that pairs nicely with food, and not competing for attention. Next trip out, she and her husband plan a tour at the winery with Jack.  Maybe sneak a peek at what’s on the horizon for 2016! (and hopefully a taste or two!)
Linda’s favorite Galante: Our bold Blackjack Pasture is a worthy companion beside a cowboy steak!  Second to none: Bulls Eye Red. A rich and decadent pairing with chocolate lava cake & vanilla ice-cream. Tried & True!
Words of Wisdom: Wine; because no great story ever started over salad !

Congrats & a big thank you for your patronage!

Shucks, we're all a blush.....mighty nice words, Jean!

Galante Gazette-April 2015


Bulls Eye Red – A High Wine

We have long be thinking of making a Port style wine and in 2013 we took on the challenge.  Now, after two years of aging we are thrilled to announce the release of our inaugural 2013 Bulls Eye Red ($38/btl). This delicious desert wine combines ripe Cabernet and Petite Sirah grapes, fortified by high proof wine spirits, to create a smooth, elegant nectar with flavors of ripe cassis, blackberry, vanilla, honey and a hint of toasted nuts. Serve with a platter of cheese after dinner or perhaps a decadent chocolate fondant. Of course, a glass of Bulls Eye with a fine cigar can’t be beat! Only 85 cases of 500ml bottles of this wine were produced so ORDER soon!

Blackjack is Back!

I know – it has been a long wait, but we have finally released our new 2012 Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon ($55/btl). I hope you agree that it was worth the wait. 2012 was a stellar vintage, producing wines of exceptional flavor. Our Blackjack Pasture has a nose of dark berries and roasted cocoa bean and flavors of dark chocolate, blackberries and a hint of toasted oak. The tannins are rich and chewy providing a lengthy finish. While quite youthful, this wine already drinks beautifully and will only continue to improve with age, as with all our previous Blackjack Pasture Cabernets. ORDER your wine to enjoy now and for years to come!

Jack’s Saddlebag – Eliud on the Way to Recovery

You may have heard that Eliud, our fabulous vineyard manager and friend for the past 30 years, suffered a serious stroke several months ago. After a lengthy stay in the ICU, Eliud transferred to a rehab center for about a month and then, a few weeks ago, he returned home to continue his rehabilitation. We are happy to report that Eliud has been able to get rid of his wheelchair and is now even walking on his own with no assistance! He is truly a fighter and has no intention of staying down for long. Naturally full recovery will take a long time, but we are confident he will succeed. Shortly after Eliud’s incident, we started a fundraising effort to assist Eliud and his family during these difficult times. We are absolutely blown away by all the support the community and our winery friends have shown. We are close to achieving our fundraising goal so if you would like to make a donation please visit our You Caring site. Thanks again for all your well wishes and positive thoughts.

Help Eliud Get Back to the Ranch

Many of you know Eliud, our great friend and vineyard manager of the past 30 years. On Thursday, January 22nd, Eliud suffered a major hemorrhagic stroke while at work near the upper part of our ranch. No one was aware that anything happened until he did not show up later in the evening and, after an extensive search, we found Eliud about 100 yards down a ravine where he had tumbled after suffering the stroke. This was about 8 to 10 hours after his stroke. With the help of CalFire emergency services and the great Cachagua Fire Department volunteers, we had him air lifted to the Natividad Hospital Trauma Center in Salinas.  The following day we had him transported to UCSF so he would receive the finest medical services available. His neurosurgeon believes that, although there is significant trauma, Eliud is strong and will make a full recovery, barring any unforeseen setbacks. That being said, it will be a long recovery and will take a lot of rehabilitation once he is out of the woods.

Eliud was born in Guatemala in 1960, one of four children. His mother and stepfather, Bralio, emigrated to the US while Eliud remained in Guatemala to finish his education in electronics. With no great future ahead of him in Guatemala he headed for the US in 1982. Eliud’s stepfather was working at the time for our neighbor, Durney Vineyards. Bralio asked my father if we might have a position for his young stepson and Eliud started working on the ranch in 1984 as a ranch hand. Over the next few years Eliud’s responsibilities increased and he moved into a small house on the property. In 1986 we had our first grape harvest and in 1987 Eliud married his wife, Maria. In December 1989, through hard work and dedication, Eliud became our official vineyard manager. Eliud moved into a larger house on the ranch where he has raised his three children and a grandchild. To this day, Eliud manages not only the entire ranch and cattle business but also the vineyards. Eliud is the finest person I know and I’m sure those of you who also know Eliud will certainly agree with me. 

Naturally, Dawn and I are doing everything we can to assist Eliud and his family both financially and emotionally, and we provide Eliud with health insurance which will cover many of his medical expenses. However, the family will face many challenges and have significant expenses in addition to those that the insurance covers and what we can assist with. The community outreach has been unbelievable and all your thoughts, prayers and good wishes have been so well received and have truly helped Eliud’s recovery. We ask you now if you can assist in any way possible to help create a fund for Eliud and his family to get them through these difficult times. Dawn and I would like to start this fund with a $1,000 donation and we hope you will assist us in achieving or even exceeding our goal of $25,000 over the next few months.

On behalf of Eliud and his family, many thanks to all for your continued good wishes and support.

Eliud – 30 Great Years

Many of you have had the pleasure of meeting Eliud Ortiz, our ranch manager for the past 30 years. However, you may not know a lot about Eliud and how he ended up with us at Galante Vineyards. Eliud was born in Guatemala in 1960, one of four children. His mother and stepfather, Bralio, emigrated to the US in 1968 while Eliud remained in Guatemala to finish his education in electronics. With no great future ahead of him in Guatemala he headed for the US in 1982. Eliud’s stepfather was working at the time for our neighbor, Durney Vineyards. Bralio asked my father if we might have a position for his young stepson and Eliud started working on the ranch in 1984 as a ranch hand. Over the next few years Eliud’s responsibilities increased and he moved into a small house on the property. In 1986 we had our first grape harvest and in 1987 Eliud married his wife, Maria. In December 1989, through hard work and dedication, Eliud became our official vineyard manager. Eliud moved into a larger house on the ranch where he has raised his three children and a grandchild. To this day, Eliud manages not only the entire ranch and cattle business but also the vineyards. He also oversaw our past garden rose business and he assists with whatever needs doing at the winery. I want to thank my great friend, Eliud, for 30 years of stewardship and loyalty. They don’t make ‘em like you anymore!

Jack’s Saddlebag – The Real Scoop

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy.

And Dot Com was a homely woman, large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success.

Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading, as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Damascus Sybarites, or NERDS.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drum heads and drum sticks.

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others. “And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or eBay as it came to be known.

He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."

"YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.

It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began.
