A Toast to Cesar Chávez Day!
Historical bronze statue of Cesar Chávez + Dolores Huerta at Ceja Vineyards. Today celebrates the birth and legacy of the civil rights and labor movement activist Cesar Chavez. Farmworkers today are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, feeding families in California and across the nation.
On Cesar Chavez Day, we honor him and all farmworkers that help put food on our tables and harvest our grapes to make legendary wines from Napa + Sonoma Valley. We have the utmost respect for Farmworkers (campesinos) because that is how our familia was introduced to the wine industry. Today and everyday we raise our wine glasses and toast to farmworkers all over the world.
Muchas gracias campesinos y salud!

¡Feliz Cumpleaños Papa Pedro Ceja!
First look with my dad on our wedding day! Such a special moment between us that I will never forget. Today is also his birthday and he looks more handsome than ever! As he always jokes, “I’m aging like a damn fine wine.” True story dad...
If there’s a way to build it, my dad will find it. This week we celebrate his artistic eye and contributions to Ceja Vineyards. From his work as an engineer, he understands that even the simplest product represents a lot of skill and work. He brings a forward-looking practicality and analytical eye to our Ceja winery plans. Next time you see him give him a big bear hug and grill him on the winery plans - he'll be in heaven!
P.S. Please visit www.daliaceja.com to see more of my wedding pictures!
Plan your next wine tasting experience focused around the Carneros wine growing region in Napa and Sonoma Valley! We are thrilled to partner with Beau Wine Tours who provide intimate VIP experiences that are unique to each client’s taste and wine preferences. Learn more about Beau Wine Tours and book your next tour!
Below, you’ll find some of my favorite wine tasting spots in Carneros! You will notice they share a few things in common: stunning views, award-winning wine portfolios, and unforgettable hospitality experiences! Unlike most of the Napa Valley’s famous AVA’s, Carneros is known largely for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, as well as famous sparkling houses like Domaine Carneros (check it out below!). Recently, other varieties have been planted as viticulturists experiment with the region’s rolling hills, cool fog, and warm daytime temperatures.
1. Ceja Vineyards
No brainer! Enhance your wine knowledge as you learn about our rich Mexican heritage and see what makes the Carneros region such a premier grape growing region. Nuestra casa es su casa, we look forward to hosting you in the near future!
2. Domaine Carneros
Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Sit on the patio and enjoy the gorgeous views of the Carneros countryside.
3. Bouchaine Vineyards
Overlooking San Pablo Bay and both the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Liana Estates is a picturesque winery perfect for an afternoon escape.
4. Artesa Winery
It's like a walking art gallery with wines and a view to match the beauty of Carneros.

Fusing salsa, timba, bomba, funk and whatever else they can find to spice up the mood, they provide a hard hitting style of playing. And while you can hear them interpreting the classic and contemporary Cuban and Salsa repertoire, they are not shy with their own expression, as evidenced by their hit debut CD “Llego La Fiesta”, released in April of 2011. Rumbaché is the voice of youth for San Francisco's Salsa & Timba scene, and ignites enthusiasm in dancers and musical connoisseurs alike.
Salsa Lessons by Nick & Serena:
Nicholas Van Eyck and Serena Wong are the founders and directors of Salsa Vale Todo: the premier Bay Area Cuban salsa dance group. Dancing professionally since 2000, this dynamic duo have taught and performed at salsa congresses, festivals and cruises throughout the US and internationally. Nick and Serena are also the organizers of the famed San Francisco Salsa Rueda Festival that takes place every February and the historic Hotel Whitcomb.
DJ Walt Digz:
For over a decade DJ Walt Digz has been one of the most requested salsa, timba and reggaeton DJs in Northern California. Walt Digz’s great song selections, mixing skills and ability to elevate the mood of any dance venue keeps him in heavy rotation at numerous Bay Area clubs and dance festivals.

His son Hugo, a graduate in Viticulture and Enology from the UC Davis, now oversees the making of their limited production wines.
