Wine Tour: V. Sattui Winery & Italian Market
V. Sattui Winery offers a slice of Italy in San Francisco and Napa Valley.
In 1885, Vittorio Sattui opened a small winery in San Francisco’s North Beach, marking the birth of what would become, after four generations, a storied Italian tradition in Napa Valley—V. Sattui Winery.
Today, the winery, located in St. Helena, California on a 38-acre organically farmed vineyard, pays meticulous detail to tradition while showcasing an exceptional experience. The winery building, designed from sketches by Vittorio’s great-grandson Dario, has the intense feel of a small Italian village.
Touted as one of the Napa Valley’s favorite places to picnic, two full acres are dedicated to enjoying food and wine under majestic oaks bordering the estate vineyards. V. Sattui also provides a delightful Italian Marketplace, featuring more than 200 artisan cheeses, hand-carved meats, and locally baked breads. All this—plus a portfolio of more than 50 wines—gives guests everything they could ask for in a picnic.
Under Dario’s leadership, V. Sattui has established itself as one of the premier, quality wineries in America. In recent years, V. Sattui has been honored numerous times as Winery of the Year at the California State Fair. After being chosen Best Winery in the San Francisco Bay Guardian’s Best of the Bay Readers’ Poll, V. Sattui was named 2012 Winery of the Year two times—in January at the Winemaker Challenge, and in March at the Monterey Wine Competition.
It’s important to note that these noted wines are sold only at the winery, by phone, or through the V. Sattui Winery website.
Although one can be impressed by high accolades and praise, the best way to know V. Sattui is to visit. So many people do that V. Sattui Winery is reputed to have one of the highest number of visitors per year of any winery in the nation.
