Annie Favia and Andy Erickson began Favia Wines in 2003, amidst myriad responsibilities at Napa’s most lauded wineries and vineyards. Their commitment to Coombsville began first with a family home more than a decade ago. In alignment with biodynamic principles, they devoted much of their first property to the production of food: fruit trees, vegetables, honey, eggs. And, finally, Annie planted an acre of dry-farmed Sauvignon Blanc – a vineyard of her own. The historic Carbone property, now 6.5 acres along Coombsville Road, then presented Annie and Andy the opportunity to sharpen their vision for Favia Wines with the privilege to own both a winery and home in Coombsville.

Andreya Nightingale created Mortar Pestle Cooking to bring the work of local food producers and artists together to create intangible beauty and pleasure at your dinner table. She works with your daydreams (and her own) to create menus and tablescapes that capture your imagination as a tableau in which you and your guests play the principle subject.
