Vine Grown Meets Wood Fired

Andrea Mugnaini's Wood Fired Oven

Recently, on a beautiful summer afternoon, we traveled with Silver Oak Winery Chef Dominic Orsini to see our friend Andrea Mugnaini (pronounced Moon-Ya-Ee-Nee) at her Healdsburg, California cooking school.  Andrea is a wine country entrepreneur who imports and sells a series of wood-fire ovens for both commercial and residential use.  We met her at her cooking school where she conducts immersive training seminars for her clients and had invited us to see some of the ovens that she has been kind enough to donate to us for our 40th Anniversary Release Day celebration on August 4th. 

Nestled among the hills of the Anderson Valley and between the rows of her own vineyard, Andrea’s cooking school is a study in all things Tuscan.  From a sun-bleached stucco exterior, to a terraced patio wrapped in olive trees that frame one of her beautiful ovens, and a pool that overlooks her vineyards and the hills beyond; Andrea’s home looks like it was built in homage to Italian life.  And in many ways, it is.

Almost Half Way There!

POSTED 6/27/2012 11:18:25 PM COMMENTS

Next week will mark the halfway point of our journey across this great nation of ours as we continue to celebrate 40 wonderful years of Silver Oak Cabernet.  Along the way we've seen some beautiful sites, made a bunch of new friends, had some great meals, and of course, drank some fantastic Silver Oak wine. As we've started making our way into the Northeast, we wanted to share with you some of our photos so far in case you missed them on our Facebook and Twitter pages.  Thank you to everyone who has come out to say hello and to everyone, whether near or far, who have helped to celebrate these past four decades with us.  Hope to see you at any of the remaining Tour Stops or at Release Day on August 4th.  (Tickets on sale now!)

As always, check back here to see the rest of our Tower Tour 2012 stops.  See you on the road!
