Please join us to harvest olives and enjoy a community lunch at Montemaggiore Winery on Saturday, November 19.
Picking starts at 9:30 and lunch will be at noon. You may continue picking in the afternoon if you wish. And you’ll take home some olives and a brining recipe.
We’ll be joining Montemaggiore wine club members, so space is limited—sign up now! The cost is $35 for members, $45 for non-members. Please register at firstname.lastname@example.org. When your place is confirmed, send a check to Sonoma County North c/o Witten, 26100 Bella Aria Way, Cloverdale 95425.
Wear sturdy waterproof boots and gloves, and dress in layers. And don’t forget a hat, sunglasses and water bottle! The event goes on drizzle or shine, but is cancelled if it’s pouring rain.
The owners of Montemaggiore are Sonoma County North members Lise and Vincent Ciolino. “Our family hails from Montemaggiore Belsito, a small mountain village in southern Italy where organically-grown food and hand-crafted products abound. This is where Vincent’s father and forefathers farmed the land, made wine, and spent every Sunday surrounded by family at the dinner table, enjoying the fruits of their labor. Our personal Montemaggiore is a small mountainside country estate in northern California where we grow grapes and olives for our hand-crafted wines and olive oils. Our family values are true to Montemaggiore Belsito—we live in harmony with the land, keep close family ties, and enjoy wonderful food and festivity.”
