What's the Story?

I moved from San Francisco to wine country eight years ago, and now even make wine in my laundry room. Vignetto is a dream come true to share the life, food, wine, people, and experiences I’m lucky enough to have here. After a career in technology, I’ve found my heart and soul here in Healdsburg, California.

I’ve been fortunate to meet a number of great friends who are the region’s best winemakers and chefs. Some of the most memorable meals I’ve had have been casual events in the backyard, a warm summer night with paper plates and world-class wines. And so you know we don’t mess around here in Healdsburg—we’re talking slow-roasted pig or stuffed whole salmon served with homemade regional wine made from grapes picked by hand. It doesn’t get much better.

With the help of yet more friends and locals who are just as passionate about wine and food and creating unique wine country experiences, we’ve created Vignetto. Discover a new kind of travel experience and drink the wine, eat the food, meet the people, and see the places we get to enjoy here every day.

We can’t wait to share them all with you!
