A tavola non s’invecchia mai ~
at the table, no one gets old
I was brought up in a family that believed in sharing stories as a way of preserving heritage and memory. From the time I was young, I can remember gathering around the big wood stove in Nonna’s kitchen, listening to family tales. To me, times spent in the kitchen and at the table with others are among the most meaningful moments in life. The table is where we fuel our body, mind and spirit.
When I first started making wine from my St. Helena vineyard almost 20 years ago, I was intent on creating wines that would be shared with others over a homemade meal. The wines needed to reflect their sense of place in the Napa Valley, with a focus on quality over quantity and a commitment to sustainability. Today our focus remains the same as it did the day I started.
It is my deepest desire to share my passions with others. This was the inspiration behind our wine club, A Tavola, which means “at the table” in Italian. A Tavola combines what I love most in life: sharing wine, food and stories around the table with those who are most important to you. I invite you to share my passion by joining A Tavola. We look forward to welcoming you into our inner circle.
