If you are driving north up Highway 29, just south of Sunshine Foods you will find Velo Vino. Velo Vino is the tasting room for Clif Family Wines.
Yes, the same Clif Family that make all those extremely popular energy bars. They also happen to make some pretty delicious wines!
I think when one is passionate about making terrific products, there is no stopping. These folks continually move forward in the arena of incredible edibles.
At the beginning of this week, we received our first shipment of Meyer lemon marmalade and apple butter. The marmalade is full of yummy shredded peel which is NOT bitter if you aren't a fan of traditional marmalade. Gotta love the Meyer Lemon! I can not wait to try this as a glaze for chicken. As we were tasting the apple butter in the back room, eyes were popping open and the happy faces were in no short supply. This is just like one you would make at home. All from their family farms which are mostly organic or in the process of becoming so (paper work). This is so new that the labels are still being hand stamped and adhered by hand.
FYI - We have carried for years now, their top notch fruit & nut snacks. Again, the best quality and a very lovely addition for any Napa Valley picnic.
Chow for Now (get it?) hahaha
