Little Napoli Hosts Ventana Vineyards


Ciao Amici (hello friends),

A few years ago I was invited to become a partner with a group of close friends in one of Monterey County’s premiere wineries, Ventana Vineyards. It’s been great to be involved in this venture, and I’m proud to be hosting Ventana Vineyards at Little Napoli for the 14th Annual Great Wine Escape Weekend Winemakers’ Dinner.

Please plan to join us and savor the wines of Ventana Vineyards, and enjoy the Italian cuisine and ambiance at Little Napoli Bistro Italiano in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 13, 2010 at 7:00 pm. To purchase your tickets now, click here.

Please enjoy my newsletter and I hope to see you all at this wonderful event!

Alla salute,

P.S. If you have any specific questions, I can help. Simply send an e-mail to me directly at

The Ventana Story

Great wines are made in the vineyard, and the Ventana Vineyard has the perfect combination of water, soil, climate, art and science to create superb, world-class wines. Our success is evidenced by the number of awards that we have won over the years on wine made from this remarkable property. In fact, wines from our Ventana Vineyard have earned more medals and awards than any other single vineyard in America.

Building on the incredible success of founder Doug Meador with white wine like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, Ventana expanded its range to create world-class red wines as well. In every case, our wines are crafted in a classical style, with elegance and true varietal character from the Ventana vineyard fruit. All of our wines are Estate grown and bottled from our single vineyard, the most award-winning single vineyard in America.
