A Dream of Giving Back
Step into a world where passion meets purpose, where dreams intertwine with award-winning wines. Meet Dawn Galante, the heart and soul behind a winemaking journey that began in 2011, infused with a spirit of giving back. As the sun sets over the vineyards, a remarkable tale unfolds, filled with warmth and excitement.
Dawn's unwavering passion for helping women and children matches her fervor for crafting exquisite wines. Her mission is clear: to produce wines that not only delight the senses but also touch hearts. Each sip of her approachable wines reveals exceptional quality and elegance, nurtured by fruit sourced from the finest vineyards in California. Picture the enchanting dance of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Rosé, embraced by coastal breezes and kissed by golden rays in the hills of Carmel Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands. These are the coveted vineyards that bear witness to the birth of Dawn’s Dream wines, celebrated for their elegant, bright, and complex characteristics.
And there's more to the magic. Dawn's dream has always been to ignite dreams in others, a vision brought to life through her "Dream a Little Dream of Me!" program. Her passion for philanthropy knows no bounds, as she donates money, product, and time to support local and global nonprofit organizations. Together, we can make the world a brighter place.
Rewind to 1985, when Dawn's journey from Michigan to California sparked her love affair with wine beyond the automotive world. In 2001, Dawn began applying her business knowledge to her husband’s winery and learned the industry. In 2011 Dawn’s Dream Winery was born. Today, as the CFO and COO of both Galante Vineyards and her own winery, Dawn continues to curate dreams.
Enthralled by life's vibrant tapestry, Dawn is not just a winery owner; she is a beacon of hope, actively involved with Les Dames d’Escoffier and Knights of the Vine, spreading light through Jacob’s Heart, AIM for Youth Mental Health, Rising International, Voices for Children, and numerous other non-profits.
When she's not crafting dreams in every bottle, you'll find Dawn spending time with her husband, Jack Galante, their five children, and grandchildren, exploring the great outdoors through snow-skiing, scuba diving, and hiking. Free-thinker Henry David Thoreau said it best: "Dreams are the touchstones of our character," and Dawn Galante has built her life around these very dreams.
