“The artist is of no importance. Only what he creates is important….”

House & Garden

The winery is located at Chris Camarda's house which explains why there is no tasting room. The house is influenced by Italian industrial design and sits on 5 acres. In addition to a large garden which we eat out of all summer long, there are chickens on the property.

Art

Visitors are struck by Chris Camarda's serious modern art collection. Most pieces are by European artists. The art ranges from whimsical to provocative to moody and dark.

Music

Chris is an audiophile with an LP jones and has a stereo system that you don't  want to touch. In addition to living room listening, there are live performances which he attends such as the Festival Au Desert 2012 in Mali. We are looking forward to a private performance at the winery this winter by Third Coast Percussion. What is Chris listening to now? Bukka White.

Food

Breadmaking, pizza ovens, honey production, sausage making, kimchi, Parmigiano Reggiano Cravero, pig roasts.  Francis Mallmann from Argentina is a huge hero.   

Coffee

Pollard Coffee roasted on site, Ethiopian & Sumatra blend, double espresso post lunch, Diedrich Roasters.
