Founder & Winemaker
Every good product has a story, and a soul. Founding partner/winemaker, Gerry Martinez, has both.
Let’s start in Mexico, where Gerry grew vegetables, and raised chickens and cattle on a ranch with his family. At age 12 his family came to the Napa Valley. Gerry's dad worked in the fields and vineyards to raise a family of 10. In high school Gerry went from the winery stock room, later to cellar work, and now is Vinos Unidos' owner/winemaker. All along, learning from the best winemakers in Napa Valley.
More importantly, Gerry’s deep connection with nature and his knowledge of the terroir, makes him the soul of Vinos Unidos. Our “magician.” No wonder our wines have become “Award Winning” in a very short period of time.
Next time you’re in Napa, make sure to visit Gerry. He’ll be more than happy to give you a master class in wine-making.
