WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
Our selection was fashioned by none other
than Ca’Momi in Napa Valley. The winery
was founded by three Italian expats - Ste-
fano Migotto, Dario De Conti and Valentina
Guolo-Migotto - in 2006.
Stefano and Dario share winemaking du-
ties. Stefano is a third-generation distiller
from Northern Italy who also worked at his
family’s winery in the Veneto. And Dario
began his formal wine education at 14,
studying for 10 years while working at his
family’s pizzeria.
When the three partners came to Califor-
nia, what they saw in the Napa Valley made
them want to stay for good. Ca’Momi is
named after a local character from Veneto,
Italy - Momi de Bionda - who was obsessed
with his winery and vineyards. Apparent-
ly,the three partners share this obsession.
In a very short time (at least in wine years),
Ca’Momi has become one of the leading
production houses for small wineries who
can’t afford their own equipment. Among
his other talents, Stefano Migotto is also a
superb mechanic. This is an incredibly for-
tuitous gift, especially if you’ve ever seen a
bottling line in a winery; they have been
known to drive winemakers literally mad.
We, meanwhile, are figuratively mad about
this wine and you will be too. It may not say
Napa on the label, but it certainly says it in
the glass. They wouldn’t divulge the grapes’
source, but it’s not hard to tell.
Here is the essence of great Cabernet with
all the trimmings. The violet and plum
nose gives way to the rich, ripe cranberry
and black cherry flavors and completes the
experience with a haunting, daunting and
daring finish.
