“The artist is of no importance. Only what he creates is important….”
- William Faulkner
House & Garden
The winery is located at Chris Camarda's house which explains why there is no tasting room. The house is influenced by Italian industrial design and sits on 5 acres. In addition to a large garden which we eat out of all summer long, there are chickens and pigs on the property.
Visitors are struck by Chris Camarda's serious modern art collection. Most pieces are by European artists. The art ranges from whimsical to provocative to moody and dark.
Chris is an audiophile with an LP jones and has a stereo system that you don't want to touch. In addition to living room listening, there are live performances which he attends such as the Festival Au Desert 2012 in Mali. We are looking forward to a private performance at the winery this winter by Third Coast Percussion. What is Chris listening to now? Bukka White.
Breadmaking, pizza ovens, honey production, sausage making, curing meat, kimchi, Parmigiano Reggiano Cravero, pig roasts. Francis Mallmann from Argentina is a huge hero.
