Speaker Topic & Bio
Tony is a third generation wine maker who perfected his craft while working as an apprentice in his father’s winery. His dream was to create an experience that incorporated traditional wine making, old world charm and the best of modern amenities. Nestled in the fertile wine growing hills of Coloma, Contessa is the realization of that dream. He offers a vast selection of fine wines, served in a tasting room reminiscent of an Italian villa. Outside you are treated to spectacular orchard vistas from the terrace overlooking the Coloma valley.
Life is there, you just have to taste it!
