Yribarren Family Vineyards is family owned and operated by Jeff and Wendy Yribarren (Pronounced ear-i-bear-n). They have 4 children (one set of triplets) who also help contribute to this family owned winery.
Jeff Yribarren was born and raised in the Central Valley of California. He attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he majored in Agribusiness. He returned to farm as his family has for four generations. He farms row crops such as red and green peppers, seed alfalfa, wheat, cantaloupes, squash, onions, tomatoes, and of course, grapes. He has always had a love for winemaking so in 2009 he began making wine for their newest venture, their winery Yribarren Family Vineyards. Jeff is the winemaker and can be seen proudly pouring his wines and answering questions of those eager to know how wine is made.
Wendy Yribarren was born in Orange County and attended Cal Poly SLO where she majored in Liberal Studies. She was a teacher for 5 years until the birth of their triplets. In 2009 she helped Jeff start Yribarren Family Vineyards. She runs all the day to day operations of the winery including the Wine Club, special events, website, tastings events, tasting room, and all publicity. She is the Media chair for Twin Rivers Vintners. She can always be seen pouring wine and sharing her love for her husband's hand crafted wines.
