As a former Clayton Councilman and Vice Mayor, I see the city of Clayton CA continues to evolve. I am proud to be an involved member of the community of Clayton CA. My time volunteering with the Clayton Business and Community Association (CBCA), Clayton Valley Charter High School (CVCHS), and engaging with current Clayton Council Members, has allowed me to continue to help the community.
For the 2017 and 2018 Clayton Art & Wine Festival I continue to be the Chairman of the Beer and Wine Committee. Through these events, with my help, the CBCA has increased the net profits from this fundraising event.
Through relationships with wine industry leaders and insurance clients, I continue to be able to secure significant donations to maximize the profits of this charitable event. All of the proceeds are invested back into the local community, schools, college scholarships, and other worthy non-profits.
For the 2017 event we were proud to showcase Mionetto Proseccos, their Rocca Sveva wines, Bollicini wines, Esperto, 50 degree Reisling, Castello di Monsanto, and Capezzana wines.
We extend our sincere appreciation to Jason Fabrizio and Mionetto USA for their support of our event.
We are proud to be able to offer these wines again in 2018 along with a few other brands that will be announced closer to the event.
While the event is called the Clayton Art & Wine Festival, we will also have a large variety of specialty, local, and craft beers for you to enjoy.
I would also like to thank Markstein Sales Co. and their entire team for all of the support they have provided to our event over the years as well. Their team is at the event all weekend helping to make sure the beer is always cold and flowing.
Make sure you save the date for this years event.
Free Admission for the whole family!

Clayton is a very special place, with exceptional people who have a deep appreciation for the community’s history, tradition and volunteerism. In 2014, Clayton celebrated its 50th Anniversary of Incorporation (1964) yet Clayton still retains many of the time-honored characteristics treasured by its founding fathers in 1857. Nestled at the bucolic base of picturesque Mt. Diablo, Clayton is in close proximity to the greater San Francisco Bay Area with all the amenities, sports and cultural opportunities offered by that choice location.
