Jeff and Valerie Gargiulo invite guests to their wine estate for a delicious luncheon reflecting the vineyard’s reputation as a preeminent producer of Cabernets.
A man of many talents, Jeff Gargiulo has effortlessly blended his love for wine, food, and music. In fact, Gargiulo Vineyards is one of a handful of wineries with a permanent concert stage on its grounds. In addition to great food and fine wine, guests at today’s event will enjoy a performance by dynamic cellist and Festival favorite Sophia Bacelar, while taking in the splendor of eastern Oakville’s hallmark red hills.
As a lifetime farmer, Jeff Gargiulo has always been passionate about the land and agricultural, and today that passion is focused on the joys of grape growing and fine winemaking. From the beginning, the Gargiulo’s committed themselves to creating a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon wine estate. From his years spent farming, Jeff Gargiulo, knew that if he didn't start with the very best land, he could never expect to grow the best grapes. For this reason, the Gargiulo's chose Oakville to establish their namesake winery. The very first vintage of Gargiulo Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was 2000, and since then Gargiulo Vineyards has quietly taken its place among the most highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Napa Valley.
