Celebrating Deep Cullinary Roots

Chef Michael Chiarello steps back into his clogs at Bottega Restaurant in Yountville, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley. Bottega, "artist's workshop," will serve as Chiarello's own craftsman's kitchen, from which he celebrates deep culinary roots.

Chef Chiarello is acclaimed chef, Emmy-winning host of Food Network's Easy Entertaining, tastemaker behind NapaStyle, and proprietor of Chiarello Family Vineyards, as well as a longtime Napa Valley resident.

Bottega showcases Chiarello's signature bold Italian flavors with a refined twist. Bottega's menu highlights the bounty of artisanal and house made ingredients, as well as local produce. Bottega is part of the historic Vintage Estates, located in one of the oldest wineries in the Napa Valley, and is open for lunch, dinner, and after dinner.

Out of the hundreds of books written each year, it’s a huge acknowledgement.”
