KENWOOD -- After eight years of planning, Vittorio Belmonte’s vision to recreate a little bit of Italy in Kenwood, complete with a VJB barrel cellar, tasting room and village marketplace surrounding a piazza, was realized in a grand opening on July 20.

Growing up in Bonito, Italy, Mr. Belmonte’s early years picking grapes in the family vineyard formed the foundation for an authentic approach that became the Kenwood Marketplace and VJB Cellars located at 60 Shaw Avenue adjoining Highway 12.

After coming to America, his goal was to rekindle the one-of-kind feeling of a warm, rustic and relaxed old world crafted sense of space he remembered from his youth that would endure and pass the test of time.
