Robledo Winery Bar Stool

Sr. Reynaldo Robledo, now a landholder and winemaker in Sonoma, began his career in the industry through the bracero program, migrating to Napa from Michoacán in the 1960s.
The stool was made in Mexico about 2000 and is part of a larger set of furniture used in the Robledo Family Winery tasting room, a winery started in 1990 in Sonoma, CA. The Robledo Winery is one of only a handful of Mexican-American owned wineries in California. The back is carved with the Robledo Family Winery crest—a horseshoe and grape motif that blends the family’s cattle ranching beginnings in Mexico with its more recent identity as wine growers and producers. The winery setting evokes a hacienda from Mexico, a style unlike others in the area.
