"Behind Maddalena Wines, the family-owned, certified sustainable, estate-grown Central Coast winery, there is Maddalena Riboli. At 98 years of age, Maddalena continues to inspire her winemaking family with her determination, vision, and ingenuity. The winery recently announced a new tagline and new package to honor the woman who made her own mark and inspires a new generation of women.
“When I was growing up, I had no idea that what my mother was doing was any different to other families. I don’t think she did either,” says Cathy Riboli, 3rd generation Riboli family owner. “But now, as our family grows and the fourth generation has joined the company, we understand just how much she did, not just for our family business, but also the industry as a whole. Our ‘Make Your Mark’ tagline is an effort to see her contributions are recognized.”
Born in 1922 in Piedmont, Italy, Maddalena Riboli is the foundation of Riboli Family Wines, the producers behind Maddalena Wines. When her family emigrated to the U.S., they settled in Southern California, where they farmed the land. Her husband, the late Stefano Riboli, was smitten when he saw her ability to skillfully drive a tractor! A woman before her times, Maddalena is credited with opening one of the first winery tasting rooms in California in 1947 because she knew customers would buy more if they had a chance to taste the wines." - Pess Release from Wine Industry Advisor
