V. Sattui 125th Anniversary Event

I was very fortunate yesterday to attend the hundred and 25th anniversary of the V. Sattui winery here in the Napa Valley. They have some really great speakers and it was a very small invited guest list of about 75 people. It was really great to hear DarĂ­o’s story about his forming the winery and all the trials and tribulations that were involved in that. I also got to meet his niece Danika who does a lot tweeting here about the Napa Valley and she seems like a wonderful young woman. Although the audio in the restaurant was not very good the speakers that were there to present their information did the best they could.
We also took a short walk to the original property where the winery was founded over 100 years ago. Course the building is totally different now and quite a wreck.

We tried a family Madeira wine that was simply off the hook good and were presented with a wonderful bottle of port just for coming… now that’s graciousness!
