A Dream of Giving Back
With a passion for life and a head for business, Dawn Galante started producing award-winning wines in 2011 while maintaining a business model that allows for the opportunity to give back. Dawn’s passion for helping women and children equals her passion for making wine. With the goal to produce approachable wines of exceptional quality and elegance Dawn is sourcing fruit from the finest vineyards in California. With a focus on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Rosé, the vineyards range from the coastal regions of Monterey County, to the warm, golden hills of Carmel Valley and Santa Lucia Highlands. Dawn’s Dream wines have been publicly awarded and widely recognized for their elegant, bright, and complex characteristics. Dawn’s dream has always been to help create dreams for others by donating money, product or time to support nonprofit organizations both locally and globally. Dawn traveled to California from Michigan in 1985 and it didn’t take long to discover the rich California wine world where she began her love of wine. After needing a change from the automotive world Dawn began helping her boyfriend (now husband) Jack Galante with his winery doing sales and wine events. In 2001 Dawn joined the business office full time as the CFO and COO of their family winery Galante Vineyards and continues to oversee the operations for both Galante Vineyards and her winery Dawn’s Dream. Dawn is a member of the Les Dames d’ Escoffier and Knights of the Vine and is actively involved with AIM for Youth Mental Health, Rising International, Voices for Children and many more non-profits. In her free time, you can find Dawn spending time with her husband Jack Galante, their five children and grandchildren enjoying the outdoors snow-skiing, scuba diving and hiking. Dawn has built her life on free-thinker Henry David Thoreau's belief that "Dreams are the touchstones of our character."
