t Galante Vineyards our philosophy is simple: grow the finest grapes possible and let the fruit express itself in the wine. Since all of our grapes are estate grown, each bottle of wine we produce embodies the characteristics of our unique region, exhibiting the natural flavors that are born from the land.
The Galante Family has
a long history in the Monterey area. Owner Jack Galante's great grandfather,
J.F. Devendorf, was the founder of the town of Carmel. 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. While still
maintaining a working cattle ranch, the Galantes, in 1983, began growing
premium grapes on their property, specializing in Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 1994, Jack Galante decided to build a winery and use some of his grapes
to produce ultra-premium estate bottled wines. Today Galante is recognized
as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Monterey County
and all of California.

2003 Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon: The "Blackjack Pasture" is our signature wine and our most powerful and exclusive cabernet sauvignon from a tiny 2.4 acre parcel that produces very small yields and intensely colored small berried grapes. Every vintage sees 100% new french oak to match the massive black fruit this vineyard gives. This opulent and thick cab has currant and blackberry flavors with lush chocolate notes.
