Maldonado Vineyards was founded by Lupe Maldonado, a Mexican immigrant who moved to farm in Napa Valley over 4 decades ago. After becoming the founding vineyard manager for Newton Vineyards (now managed by his son), Lupe bought 10 acres of prime vineyard real estate in Napa Valley and began Maldonado Vineyards, with consulting winemaker Jean Hoefliger of Alpha Omega.
