Introducing the Clif Family Enoteca
This spring, Clif Family opened our doors to a second Napa Valley Tasting Room located just a few steps from our original Tasting Room. A juxtaposition to the lively energy of our Main Street Tasting Room, the Enoteca offers a more private and intimate tasting experience.
With an expansive view of one of St. Helena’s most well-known vineyards and the Mayacamas mountain range, the Enoteca tasting salon and outdoor patio are a welcoming respite without having to venture to far off Highway 29 and downtown St. Helena.
Executive Chef John McConnell has created a tasting menu that highlights the fresh and seasonal ingredients from our organic Clif Family Farm. Each bite pairs perfectly with winemaker Laura Barrett’s current releases, whether you are tasting our Oak Knoll District Unoaked Chardonnay or our big and bold Howell Mountain Estate Cabernet Sauvignons.
We offer three private tastings each day of the week, beginning with our 10am Presto Gusto tasting experience. This tasting is meant to be a lighter style tasting to warm-up your taste buds for the day. We focus on brunch-inspired food bites to pair with wines selected for their brightness, acidity and lighter style.
As you venture into the noon hour, you can book our La Cima Reserva tasting or our Pasto e Vino farm-to-table lunch. Both of these experiences can be reserved for noon or 3:30pm. These experiences feature wines from our highly acclaimed Howell Mountain Estate vineyards and our new Valle di Sotto Oak Knoll District vineyard.
We farm all of our estate vineyards with a focus on sustainability. The vineyards are CCOF organic certified and Napa Green certified. At our Clif Family Farm located about 15 miles from our Tasting Rooms, we grow fruit and vegetables that are incorporated into our culinary offerings, allowing us to showcase the best Napa Valley has to offer at the peak of flavor.
We are always happy to accommodate any dietary requests and restrictions and we do offer a full plant-based tasting alternative for any of our experiences.
