Three Italians making wine in Napa Valley: Dario De Conti and Stefano Migotto are the winemakers, Valentina Guolo-Migotto is the head of marketing. Ca' Momi is Italian for "House of Mon," and since the owners family home is in Veneto, Italy, this winery merges the essences of Napa and Italy.
Several varietals produced including Pinot Noir from Carneros. Ca'Momi is the first winery in the United States featuring the Nova Twist closure which is a plastic cap that makes the bottle 100% recyclable unlike metal screw caps.
In early 2014, Ca'Momi announced they had bought a 10.5-acre Pinot Noir vineyard in the Napa Carneros region first planted in 1973, and formerly owned by Kent Rasmussen. The property is permitted for a winery and tasting room. They also bought a 9-acre vineyard planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot in the same area.
