Mi Sueño Winery

Excellent depth and balance

Mi Sueño, which is Spanish for My Dream, represents a dream realized after working for more than twenty years in the wine industry. Rolando Herrera, who grew up in the Mexican state of Michoacan, came to the United States with his family in 1975 and spent his childhood farming, learning valuable lessons about the relationship of crops to the land on which they were planted. When he reached the age of 17, Rolando accepted a summer job working for Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley – a job that would forever change Rolando’s life.

What began as a cellar worker position at Stag’s Leap progressed to a cellar master title and Rolando found a home with the winery for the following ten years. In 1995, Herrera made the difficult decision to leave Stag’s Leap for nearby Chateau Potelle and French owner-winemaker Marquetta Fourmeaux. Here, Rolando believes, was the place he learned the art of winemaking. After a couple years, Rolando was anxious to produce wines in his own style and decided to purchase some Chardonnay grapes in 1997 to craft his first Mi Sueño bottling. The wine sold out immediately with rave reviews, and Rolando never looked back. Today, Rolando produces a high-end portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, and a Cabernet/Syrah blend. With a collection of 90+ ratings, heaps of Gold Medals, and a history of wines poured at the White House, Rolando has certainly achieved his dream.

In addition to working on his own Mi Sueño brand, Rolando Herrera also serves as a consulting winemaker for a number of boutique wineries in Napa and Sonoma. Through these endeavors, Rolando continues to grow his
world-class reputation while becoming an even better winemaker.
