Chiarello Vineyards @ V Marketplace

Michael and Carol S. | Salisbury Maryland | February 2013 “First and foremost I cannot thank you enough for meeting with Carol and me Friday evening and providing us with such VIP treatment…we enjoyed our time with you learning about you wines and Chef Chiarello’s passion for food. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to get more personal with what Chiarello Vineyards is about. You are quite the ambassador for the Chiarello brand, as we could tell you have a passion for what you do.”
Greg and Kim S. | Lakewood Ohio | March 2013 “Brandon, Kim and I want to say thanks for a fantastic afternoon last Tuesday. We enjoyed learning more about the history of the property, future plans for the brand, great wine and getting to know you a little better. We remain avid fans and hope to see you again in July/August."
Jeremy and Joanne D. | Salt Lake City Utah | March 2013 “Thanks Brandon. You were awesome and all four of us were really impressed with your knowledge and presentation. Probably the best tasting we had.”
John and Amy F. | Tustin California | March 2013 “Brandon, I just thought I would send a quick note to say thank you. Although we had an amazing meal Thursday night at Bottega, the highlight of our trip was the personal service you gave us at Napa Style. We truly appreciated the special attention, patience, and wine education you provided. Next time we are in Napa, we will be back…looking forward to receiving those bottles on the porch. Thanks again!”
Chiarello Family Vineyards conducts private wine tastings and experiences mostly at the V Marketplace grounds in the heart of Yountville California, where Bottega Restaurant and NapaStyle are situated. Tastings are usually Thursdays through Sundays, by appointment. In certain circumstances, we accommodate tastings requests for other days and/or venues throughout Napa Valley and beyond. Brandon St.Martin is the winery sommelier and host for all four levels of tasting options:
PRESTO: 30 minutes; a quick wine chat and the Chiarello Vineyards history. The experience involved purchasing three "quartinos" (6.25oz carafes) at Bottega restaurant, which may be portioned out equally amongst 1-4 patrons. Brandon joins the party on Bottega's Terrazzo for a concise but lively analysis of the wines.
PREGO: 60 minutes; a wine conversation over four wines and nibbles. The Prego is $60 per person and affords a private grounds tour, demonstration of four reserve Chiarello wines, along with small food pairings. Insight: this is a perfect prelude to a larger culinary experience at Bottega or NapaStyle. This is a very popular option.
TOTALE: 90 minutes; a portfolio tasting of six Chiarello wines with elegant food pairings. The Totale is $120 per person; a luxurious way to enjoy private attention in a relaxed, unrushed format. This allows for deeper exploration of Chiarello wines and Napa Valley.
ALFRESCO: 120 minutes; This is a private vineyard wine and culinary experience for usually 4 to 10 persons at the Chiarello family estate and vineyards. Alternatively, our Howell Mountain winery may serve as a venue option. Please inquire with Brandon.
