For wine information and resources the Napa Wine Project is one of the BEST!  My guest this week is David Thompson.

The GOAL: “To personally visit, taste with, and promote all wineries, collectives, and commercial wine producers in the Napa Valley in order to create an educational resource for both consumers and trade. We have reviewed 836 commercial Napa wine producers to date,  out of more than 1,100 total.”

The Napa Wine Project is researched and maintained by David Thompson. He has been a wine enthusiast for many years (first wine made in high school) and in 2006 created this project. He has personally visited each physical winery (if applicable), met with a representative & tasted with 800+ unique commercial Napa wine producers to date (physical and virtual wineries). He is responsible for all research, winery visits & revisits, winery reviews, tasting notes, photography and updates.

Joining me for the wine(s) of the week is Ca’Momi proprietor and winemaker Dario De Conti. www.camomiwinery.com


Dario De Conti

Ca’ Momi may be built on Napa Valley soil, but it’s rooted in soulful Italian tradition. Founders Valentina Guolo-Migotto, Dario De Conti and Stefano Migotto started the winery together in 2006 to bring that passion and tradition to the Napa Valley. “In Italy, wine is on every dinner table, 365 days a year,” says Dario. “We’re never afraid to open the right or wrong bottle. It is all
about enjoying wine in the company of good friends and a great meal.” Embracing that culture of community and sharing, Ca’ Momi has created 12 (and counting) big-hearted, full-bodied Napa Valley wines with a total lack of pretension. From the award-winning Rosso di Napa to the lightly sparkling Ca’ Secco, Ca’ Momi wines strive simply to bring joy to the table. Winemakers Dario De Conti and Stefano Migotto have 50 years of combined experience and connections to some of Napa Valley’s best fruit, including Ca’ Momi’s own Carneros vineyard properties. By sourcing top quality grapes and heartcrafting each wine with soulful intention, Ca’ Momi honors centuries of Italian winemaking tradition.

Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week from Napa:
2014 Ca’Momi Chardonnay
wine bottle labelThe 2014 Napa Valley Chardonnay strikes the perfect balance between indulgence and refreshment. After a few minutes in your glass, delicate mandarin orange zest aromas open into plush pineapple and pears. On the palate, this wine is pure pleasure, decadent citrus cream poured over fresh pear crostata with a subtle hint of clove. Restrained oak provides a warm vanilla glow and softness, while the finely tuned acidity lifts and balances the richness all the way through the remarkable lengthy finish.

2013 Ca’Momi Cabernet Sauvignon
Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013This dark magenta Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon carries on the legacy of our spectacular 2012 vintage, uniting rich, dark fruit and incredible softness into a focused, harmonious whole. High-toned aromas of raspberry and fresh plums swirl around a hint of smokeand warm earth on the nose. In the mouth, the wine’s plush smoothness takes over – a warm, soft caress of dark Bing cherries and wild berry bramble, layered with sweet vanilla and milk chocolate notes. Ripe, round tannins provide substance and structure without rough edges, carrying the wine into a lengthy finish of oregano and dried summer savory. The harmoniousbalance and exceptionally smooth texture make our Cabernet an ideal choice for dinner, drinks, or date night.
