Kathy Oates, our Director of Export Sales, diaries her Ca' Momi adventures in Europe--with plenty of our wines in tow.
Ca’ Momi wines are traveling the world! Our Bianco di Napa, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Cabernet and others have been tasted – and enjoyed! – by hundreds of people in London, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Dusseldorf, and Brussels.
Our wines are currently sold in Denmark, Canada, throughout Asia, and parts of the Caribbean. Look for them to be served in restaurants and available in select wine shops in even more countries soon. Busy and great time for Ca’ Momi!
Funny thing, too – when we arrived today in Brussels, we couldn’t get into our hotel because President Obama was in there having a meeting. So we had to kill some time with mountains of luggage at a local brew pub a few blocks away.

We recently acquired two prime Napa Valley vineyards, including a 10.5-acre pinot noir vineyard from legendary Napa winemaker Kent Rasmussen, and a neighboring nine-acre vineyard planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot vines. Both vineyards are located in Napa Valley's Carneros region.
In the early 1970's, Mr. Rasmussen successfully planted Pinot Noir and was pivotal in making Carneros one of the world's premier growing regions.
The grapes from these vineyards have been a part of our Napa Valley wines for some time. We love the fruit, and the wines have been very successful. We really believe that the future of Napa wine is in Carneros, and are thrilled to join the fantastic family of wine producers in the region. These vineyards will secure continuity of style for our Reserve Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for decades, if not generations to come.
The Pinot Noir vineyard is fully permitted for a winery and tasting room, and we are happy to announce that we are moving forward with plans for a winery on that property. It will give us additional winemaking capacity, and a beautiful location for hosting visitors.
Our line of House Wines have a new look; redesigned labels, capsules and glass reflecting the style and quality of the Napa Valley wines that they deliver!
We wanted all wines in our portfolio to share major design elements and to more accurately represent the quality of the wine. These Napa Valley wines have been winning distinguished awards and medals since their debut-- and they remain a tremendous value at just $13. Our new packaging gives the consumer a more accurate understanding of the beauty within: a sophisticated, stylish wine that has repeatedly bested competing wines that sell at double the price.
We are very proud of our Ca’ Momi Bianco and Rosso--These two wines capture the pure essence of flavor and joy.
The new label retains the image of Ca’ Momi, the owner’s home and fields in Veneto, Italy. It includes bronze foil treatments and a boxed type to make the winery logo pop. The label will be printed on uncoated, highly-textured paper, similar to the labels on their varietal specific Passion line of wines.
Harvest is in full swing, and our vineyard crew is tirelessly hand picking chardonnay fruit at our Carneros vineyard.
If you have ever harvested grapes, you will have an appreciation for the hard work and long hours that are demanded this time of the year.
Fortunately for our cellar and vineyard crews, the weather has been temperate, mitigating a long list of unwanted challenges.
