Highlights

  • Composed from lots used for our ultra-premium label, Selección Herrera Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Our Coombsville vineyards lend this wine lifting acidity and soft tannins
  • Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Petit Verdot and Malbec from our family-farmed vineyards
  • Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak

This is our ode to Mother Nature's generous gift. It is our opportunity to interpret this years harvest in a matter of 60 bottles, with the personality of our Coombsville vineyards. This lot is a culmination of our ultra-premium label we produce, the family label, Seleccion Herrera. From that, we produce 2-4 barrels annually. This 60 bottle lot is uniquely crafted to exude the most upper tier qualities from not only our vineyards, but the 30yr winemaking experience of Rolando Herrera.

Rolando Herrera

Winemaker, Mi Sueño Winery

Winemaker, Rolando Herrera

I started my career in wine making while taking on a cellar worker position my senior year in high school in 1985 at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. Since then, I've been blessed with the opportunity to be Assistant Winemaker at Chateau Potelle, Winemaker at Vine Cliff and Director of Winemaking at Paul Hobbs Consulting. Mi Sueno Winery was founded in 1997 and since then, we've launched Rolando Herrera Consulting and Herrera Vineyard Management.

Country born: Mexico

Education: Although having no formal education, I learned through practice and with the mentoring of winemakers such as Warren Winiarski and Paul Hobbs.

Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years

Honors / Awards:
Founding president of the Napa Sonoma Mexican-American Vintner's Association
Having three wines (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon) poured at The White House

Winemaking Philosophy:
Since Mother Nature is so generous, we try to be as hands off as possible with little intervention. We are very blessed here in Napa Valley, so most of the work comes from Mother Nature. Outside of that factor, I like to have full control; hence I started my vineyard management company. Having your own winemaking facility helps you keep a close eye on the quality and also having your bottling line as well. The more I can control, the more comfortable I feel.
