Long Description:
From the Riverside County Historical Marker No. Riv-066

"The Galleano Winery is the oldest winemaking operation in Riverside County. In 1827 Domenico Galleano purchased the ranch from Col. Esteban Cantu, Governor of Baja California (1815-1920), including this house which dates from the 18902. The Barn, one of the last remaining examples of local barn raising, dates from the early 1900s. In 1933 Galleano, a winegrower from Italy, founded the winery following repeal of Prohibition. This family winery, at one time part of the 35,000-acre Cucamonga viticultural area, is the last of its kind in Riverside County. A working museum for future generations.
Marker placed in cooperation with the Riverside County Historical Commission, the Galleano Family Foundation, the friends of the Winery and the Billy Holcomb chapter of E Clampus Vitus
