The Smith Family Business Initiative is proud to offer our (Virtual) Taste of Family Business series. Join us monthly as we conduct a real-time experience with a family business and their product, be it wine, beverage, or food. These events offer special access to each family business, their story, and product. Space is limited to the first 25 registrants to ensure that all attendees have an opportunity to engage with one another, as well as the featured family business.
Nova Cadamatre is the first female winemaker in the US to achieve the title of Master of Wine and one of only two American winemakers to do so. In 2014, Cadamatre was named to Wine Enthusiast's Top 40 under 40 list and has numerous 90+ scoring wines to her credit from both California and New York. Trestle 31 Wine was founded in 2018 by Nova and her husband Brian Cadamatre. The name Trestle Thirty One comes from the large railroad trestle that is prominent from the top of the vineyard on Seneca Lake. This trestle is also the inspiration for the drawing on the front label. The number 31 comes from the Revolutionary War lot that the land was part of. These 500-acre tracts of land were given to Revolutionary War soldiers in lieu of payment after the war was over. In New York, they were numbered and 31 was the number of the future vineyard which Brian and Nova found on the deed once they received it.
