About Monte Rio Cellars

Monte Rio Cellars is a collaboration between longtime friends Patrick Cappiello and Pax Mahle. Following a successful career as a sommelier and restaurant owner in New York City, Patrick set his sights on the West Coast to make wine. He launched Monte Rio Cellars with the help of his buddy and highly-respected winemaker, Pax.

Monte Rio Cellars as a winery focuses on low-intervention, handcrafted wines- in the spirit of old-school California. They work closely with their vineyard partners who employ organic farming techniques. This push for sustainable and ethical farming is very important to them and is a consideration they make when forming new partnerships. Whenever possible they source from family-owned farms and have a passion for older vines.

Monte Rio Cellars love their red wines served a little chilly. Don’t be afraid to dunk these in an ice bucket or your fridge before you pull the cork!
