A MEXICAN FAMILY: AN AMERICAN DREAM

In 1968, at the age of 16, Reynaldo Robledo came to the United States as a mexican migrant farm worker earning $1.10 per hour. He was born in the town of Zamora, high atop the Sierra Madre mountains in the state of Michoacán, Mexico. After years of toiling in the vineyards Reynaldo is now a vineyard owner and producer of fine wine. Reynaldo invites you to visit his tasting room decorated with handmade furniture from his home town. As a sign of pride and commitment, wife Maria and all nine children work for the family business. Reynaldo considers his life the true "American Dream." One of his son said to YFP, "On Christmas, instead of baseball bat—we got a shovel."
