Dario Sattui donates $1 million to Calistoga schools

CALISTOGA, Calif., July 3, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Prominent Napa Valley vintner, Dario Sattui, owner of Castello di Amorosa and V. Sattui Winery, has donated $1 million dollars to the Napa County Board of Education to fund the expansion of Calistoga School District's pre-school program. It is the largest donation ever made to a Napa Valley school by a Napa Valley vintner. Mr. Sattui presented a check to the Board during a meeting in Calistoga on July 1.This donation will fund the creation of the two new classrooms, a playground and an all-day after school program and a new parking lot."An educated society is perhaps the single most important factor in perpetuating a great democracy such as ours. Everyone should have an educational opportunity. And education should begin at a very young age. Therefore, I am delighted to be instrumental in funding this very worthwhile project," said Dario Sattui. Sattui founded Castello di Amorosa, an authentically built Tuscan castle and winery in Calistoga in 2007; which today is one of the most popular landmarks in California. A native of San Francisco, in 1975 Sattui re-established with $8,000 his great-grandfather's winery in St. Helena, which is also a Napa Valley icon. "This is an overwhelming act of generosity and enlightened philanthropy by Dario Sattui," said Barbara Nemko, Napa County's Superintendent of Education.
