Specializing in Bringing a Taste of Wine Country to San Clemente
In 1998, Moore left Mondavi to develop l’Uvaggio di Giacomo, (“the Blends of James”) which he had begun with the 1997 vintage. Concurrently he helped as the consulting winemaker for five new Napa Valley start-up ventures, all while holding a ‘day job’ as the general manager and winemaker for a small, family winery in St Helena. : In early 2003 he became the Director of Winemaking for Bonny Doon Vineyard/Ca' del Solo in Santa Cruz, leaving to devote himself full time to revitalizing his Uvaggio project. Today the Uvaggio label (much simpler and easier to pronounce) proves to have been worth the long wait and considerable effort. The portfolio consists of Vermentino, Rosato, Primitivo, Moscato (both secco & dolce) and Barbera - offering neophytes and aficionados alike with accessible wines possessing vibrant flavors, framed within a classic structure, all offered at moderate prices. With key attributes like lower levels of alcohol, distinctive flavor profiles and harmonious expressions - these wines are crafted for food affinity, bringing an Italian sensibility to the American table. Jim's philosophy is that wine's primary role is to accompany food, which results in three important attributes – their accessibility, harmony and value. Visit the Uvaggio website.
