TABLE HOST LISTINGS
Sangiacomo Family Vineyards has always connected to the land—especially through farming. Beginning in Genoa, Italy where a good day’s work started and ended in the field, Vittorio Sangiacomo voyaged to America on the advice of his father and got his first job at age 17 in the vegetable fields at Bay Farm Island in Alameda County, California. For many years, he found industrial work in the booming San Francisco region, but longed to return to working the land. In 1927, he was able to purchase a 52-acre fruit tree ranch in Sonoma.

Silver Oak Cellars believes that wine is a subjective, personal experience. Like fine art or music, each person can and will experience wine in a different way. While some find joy in a deep and complex evaluation of wine, most find the key question to evaluate a wine is: Do you like it? With this in mind, we enjoy greeting guests at our Tasting Room or on the road and sharing our unique experience that is Silver Oak.

Silverado Sonoma Vineyards believes that good wine is about people. From every hand that helps create our Cabernet to every current and future friend who lifts a glass of our wine around the dinner table. We would not be Silverado without a strong community, which is why we feel so strongly about being a good neighbor. “From vine to bottle, the making of exquisite wine depends on the experienced hands of a strong community.”
