About Us

The Coombsville Vintners and Growers Association (CVG) was founded in 2009 by a group of vintners including Tom Farella (Farella Vineyard), Tracey Reichow (Blackcat Vineyard), Tim Porter (Porter Family Vineyards), Ken Bernards (Ancien Wines), Rebecca Sciandri Griffin (Sciandri Family Vineyards), and Kari DiFabrio (Sodaro Estate Winery). It started as an informal Christmas party of neighbors and friends where everyone brought something to taste. Over 20 people came, and everyone agreed it would be a good idea to create an organization.
