On The Spotlight

A celebration of Friendship

Presenting

Longfellow Wine Cellars

 

 

Longfellow’s inaugural vintage of their 2001 wines is the result of two childhood friend’s hard work and planning. Some think of the poet, Henry Wadsworth, and the poem Longfellow and perhaps that is where the name derives from. But actually it is the name of the neighborhood where the two grew up in Maryland.

 

“To us, Longfellow represents our long friendship through the years and with the release of the 2001 vintage, our passion to produce the highest quality wines. Wine has become an important part of our lives and a common thread that has brought our close families and friends together. We hope that Longfellow wines will become a part of your lives, especially when you celebrate good times with your close friends and family.”

 

“Mark and Craig trace their roots back to Maryland, where they grew up in the neighborhood of Longfellow in Baltimore. They both attended the University of South Carolina and spent a memorable spring break trip in Napa Valley that sparked their initial interest in wine. After going their separate ways for graduate school, Mark and Craig both ended up in Northern California and in close proximity to wine country. They spent countless weekends visiting local wineries and learning about California wines and finally decided to start a winery of their own. Longfellow Wine Company, was born in 2000. Their inaugural vintage was crafted the following year.”

 Longfellow is very fortunate and proud to have Rolando Herrera as its winemaker. Rolando is also passionate in the singular goal of only producing exceptional wines of unique character. “Great wine starts in the vineyard. And with good management, the two combined create the best foundation for a memorable wine.” The winery has developed relationships with several key growers in both Sonoma County and in Napa that have the same passion and desire to produce the best and the most exquisite wine possible.

 

Now in its sixteenth year, Longfellow Wine Company remains a small, under-the-radar label that produces less than 1,500 cases per year. The small production allows Longfellow wines to be truly handcrafted from vineyard to bottle. Every aspect of the winemaking process is directed to produce wines true to their heritage, so that each ends up a unique expression of the vineyard and climate where they were grown. The ultra-boutique winery is best known for its small-lot Cabernet Sauvignons.  The wines are available for tasting at the Vintner’s Collective, a select group of boutique vintners who share a tasting room in downtown Napa

 

 

 

THE WINEMAKER

 

 

A native of Michoacan, Mexico, Rolando worked as a laborer until he discovered that he had a good wine palate. Arriving in the Napa Valley in 1982 at the age of 15, Rolando worked several odd jobs until he started his winemaking career at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars as their cellar master. After graduating from the University of Stag’s Leap (as he puts it) where he learned the basics of the wine industry and winemaking, he decided to make winemaking his career and enrolled in a winemaking certificate program at the University of California at Davis.

 

Rolando then moved on to become the associate winemaker at Chateau Potelle. From there, Rolando refined his personal winemaking style as the winemaker at Vine Cliff Winery and more recently as the Director of Winemaking for Paul Hobbs Consulting, helping manage several limited production, ultra premium wine projects.

For the last four years, Rolando has directed his energy at establishing and growing his own label, Mi Sueño, as well as several small production wineries who share his vision of producing quality wines made with great passion and love. With the help of 15 to 20 employees, Mi Sueño now produces 5,500 cases a year, most of which are purchased by restaurants, wine clubs, and other wineries.

 

Rolando recently received the great honor of having several of his handcrafted wines served at a recent White House State Dinner in honor of Mexican president Felipe Calderon. It turns out that President Calderon is from the same town in Mexico as Rolando and his family. It is truly a great honor and a testament to Rolando's hard work and exceptional winemaking skills.
