Our Story

Passionate About WINE...
From the ground up.

Welcome to Rios Wine Company, where our passion for wine is at the heart of everything we do. Our wine company is a testament to the lifelong commitment and dedication of Manuel Rios, its proprietor.

Manuel's journey in the industry began at the tender age of 10 working alongside his father in the vineyards. This early experience cultivated his love for the land and ignited his desire to create something truly special for his family. Always the entrepreneur, Manuel established Rios Farming Company LLC in 1998, focusing on tending to the vineyards with utmost care and precision. Manuel has been responsible for up to 1200 acres of premium Napa Valley vineyards; from land development, vineyard farming management, and growers’ relations.

It was not long before his unwavering dedication and growing passion for vineyards led him to take the process from vine to bottle, culminating in the creation of Rios Wine Company, LLC in 2004. Manuel’s distinctive touch and hands-on approach permeate every aspect of the winemaking process; from vineyard management to grape selection, fermentation, and aging, ensuring that every drop of Rios Wine embodies his commitment to quality and excellence. Each bottle of Rios Wine tells a story of devotion and craftsmanship ensuring that it delivers an exceptional and unforgettable experience.

Whether you are a seasoned wine connoisseur or new to the world of wine, Rios Wine Company invites you to embark on a journey of flavor, aroma, and artistry, as you experience the labor of love that is captured within every sip of our exceptional wines. From the first sip to the last, we aim to create moments of joy and connection, making our wines the perfect accompaniment to life's most memorable occasions.

Cheers!
