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 to one of our founders who also happens to be my dad, Pedro Ceja!
May this year bring you a bountiful display of mariachis singing and drinking Ceja Pinot Noir in your honor (his favorite varietal). Please join me in wishing him a very happy birthday. Cheers to the coolest new abuelito (Papa Pedro) to your nine month old granddaughter, Luna Isabella.
I only hope that she inherits your love of singing and dancing to Mariachi music. Abrazos!
Pop, swirl, sniff, sip... repeat!

¡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!
Purpose fuels passion. The world needs more women storytellers, dreamers, change makers and action takers. There is no force more powerful or beautiful than women supporting each other.
Three generations of Ceja women coming together to empower the next generation. We all move forward when we recognize how resilient, supportive, empowering & passionate the women around us are. Today and everyday we celebrate women around the world!
