Rubia Wine Cellars is a celebration of love. It is the love story of Vintners Margaret and Joe Valenzuela. A joyful ode to Napa Valley. The culmination of an enduring dream and the beginning of a family legacy. The Valenzuelas fell in love with Napa Valley while on honeymoon. For years, the Valley tugged at their hearts until it became home. Spanish for blonde, “Rubia” was Margaret’s childhood nickname. Joe chose to name their wine for his wife as a playful nod to the romantic origin of their cellar.
