WHAT IS VIGNETTO?

We're creating Vignetto, Italian for vineyard, to provide online access to intimate and authentic wine country experiences not available anywhere else. We live in wine country so we’re not just wine lovers, we’re locals with unique access to the wine, food and culture of the region—and our friends and neighbors who create it.

We have found our hearts and souls here, and wanted to find a simple way to share it with everyone.

WHAT MAKES A VIGNETTO EXPERIENCE DIFFERENT?

Born in our hometown of Healdsburg, CA, Vignetto is our local community—and some of the best winemakers and chefs in the world. Together we’re creating one-of-a-kind, insider experiences to let visitors truly enjoy the wine, food and culture the way we do here everyday, so everyone can truly “Live Wine Country Like a Local.”

WHAT TYPES OF EXPERIENCES WILL WE OFFER?

VIGNETTO EVENTS
Vignetto Events are intimate, one-of-a-kind occasions not available to the public. These are magical wine country moments that you can’t wait to share and will never forget.
Sample Vignetto Events include—

  • A romantic private dinner party in a gorgeous candlelit wine cave (with one of our favorite winemakers)
  • An exclusive, private chef's menu and vineyard picnic (where you pick the freshest ingredients from the chef’s garden)
  • A hands-on experiential cooking course and tasting (with the Michelin star chef who lives next door)

VIGNETTO ADVENTURES
Vignetto Adventures are all-day or multi-day journeys with exclusive access to visit our favorite wineries, winemakers and chefs.
Vignetto Adventures include—

  • An exclusive tour of hidden gems and lesser-known vineyards and cellars with luxury transportation and handpicked tastings (from the winemaker’s private stash)
  • A Wine Country 101 journey with our friend (and world-renowned sommelier) to learn history, climates and viticulture, and the basics of wine tasting to find your own wine style
  • A Russian River Valley Pinot Tour to learn, taste and compare (right down to the winemaker's soil selection)

WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THE FUNDS?

  • Complete the website to discover, explore and book Vignetto experiences
  • Spread the word about Vignetto and let the world Live Wine Country Like a Local
  • Enable everyone to follow their favorite local chefs, winemakers and wineries

I’m as passionate about wine as I am traveling, as I know both can be truly life changing. I’ve lived in SF for over 26 years, and I help create the joy of living like a local wherever you go!
