I’m a California native who found her roots on the Sonoma Coast. For all the wandering and exploration I have done there’s nothing better than having a glass of wine and swapping stories and learning from one another.

I am a winemaker by trade and produce wander-must wines. I have been involved in the wine industry for ten years working for premium producers.

I’m excited to share with you my experiences that have shaped my winemaking style and outlook on life.

This was an amazing, unique experience and a fantastic value. Gianna is absolutely delightful and is clearly knowledgeable and passionate about her craft. Mateo's restaurant was a perfect venue and the food was delicious. A true highlight of our trip. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful experience!! We were a little regretting our decision going into it. We were tired and not super hungry (it’s hard to wait until 7:30 to eat for us), but we got there early and left late! Gianna was an amazing host! Chef Mateo really delivered as well! His knowledge of Gianna’s wine really allowed him to pair the food perfectly with the wine. It was interesting to talk to Mateo and Gianna, switching between food and wine to discover the brilliance of the flavors. We could have stayed all night, drinking wine and talking to Gianna. We bought two bottles to take with us. I can’t say enough about how wonderful Gianna and her wine is!! We can’t wait to bring some friends and family back in the future!

Not knowing what to expect, I was open to what ever was presented. Not only was the food and wine amazing ,the personal interactions with Gianna and Mateo gave the experience an extra layer that could not be found in any other wine and food pairing.

This is essentially a *private* wine and food pairing experience with Gianna, a local winemaker and Mateo, a chef/owner of a local restaurant. We opted for it to just be our group of three which made it even more personal. I went in with no expectations and was very pleased with the evening. Gianna dined with us and made us feel very at ease right from the start. It was very interesting to get to know her and her journey into wine making. And her wines were very nice and complimented the food well. Chef Mateo made us some great food and made us feel very welcome as well. And the location was very comfortable and convenient. It was a great overall experience and we would highly recommend it!

This experience was amazing. The depth of knowledge and learning that Gianna shared was incredible—the food pairing was also excellent. Chef Mateo served perfectly balanced (and hornet) tapas with the wines. Gianna picks wonderful Portuguese grapes and has a unique way of wine tasting. I highly recommend this experience - a value on top of it all. Gianna is lovely and charming.

Gianna is creative in her wine-making, and the food pairings from Mateo were excellent. There was plenty of wine but the food portions might have been bigger, especially considering that the event was held at dinnertime.
