Napa Vintner Recovering from Bike Crash

 

Dario Sattui PicmonkeyDario SattuiTASTE News Service February 26, 2014 – The Napa Register reports that Dario Sattui is recovering from a serious bicycle accident that occurred just over a month ago. Sattui is the owner of the V. Sattui and Castello di Amorosa wineries in the Napa Valley.

According to the Register, he had nearly completed a 10-mile ride on Diamond Mountain Road when the accident occurred on or near Highway 29. The crash may have been a result of his hitting a piece of wood on the roadway. First taken to St. Helena Hospital, Sattui was transferred to UC San Francisco Medical Center where he underwent a five-hour operation that resulted in twelve screws being inserted in his neck.

The 72-year old fitness buff is getting back to work at his home office and is said to be using a walker to assist in his daily three-mile walks. He's giving up bicycling but his future exercise plans include swimming and continued walking.

Editor's note: Both Dario Sattui's Napa Valley wineries are worth visiting, but Castello di Amorosa, his homage to the family's northern Italian heritage, is really spectacular. Links to the websites of Napa wineries, as well as links to hundreds of Lodging and Dining options, can be found in the North Coast section of Taste California Travel's Resource Directory.
