With their new takes on classic dishes, extensive wine menu and pairing options, and beautiful location along the Sonoma Creek, Aventine Glen Ellen is the perfect setting to enjoy a memorable evening—whether it’s dinner for two or your own private event.

Chef Adolfo Veronese brings the rich culinary heritage of traditional and contemporary Italian, Mediterranean, and Californian cuisine at Aventine Glen Ellen.

Chef Adolfo is of Sicilian and Padovan descent. He grew up in San Francisco and spent the majority of his summers in Italy. His father, Adolfo Veronese, Sr., was a Master Chef and Restaurateur. His mother, Angela Alioto, is a lawyer and former President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Chef Adolfo is the grandson of former San Francisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto. His claim to fame, however, is his creativity and understanding of both the traditional and modern elements of cuisine as they relate to a health-conscious appetite.

Chef Adolfo began his culinary pursuits as a child in his father’s San Francisco restaurant, Osteria Romana. As he grew older, Adolfo decided to seek formal training and attended the Culinary Institute of America, New York. Since then, he has worked for renowned restaurants including San Dominico NY, Drago, Evvia, Piero Selvaggio’s Valentino, Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining, and TAO’s Lavo Restaurant and Nightclub in Las Vegas.

Chef Adolfo went on to form La Forchetta Catering in Las Vegas in 2006. After three successful years, he decided to move his family back to his hometown. The company has been operating full-time in the greater San Francisco Bay Area ever since, and forms the foundation for all the wonderful recipes and creations that inspire the Aventine restaurants and bars.

Sculpturesite Gallery

Sculpturesite Gallery has focused on modern and contemporary fine art sculpture for twenty-seven years. Sculpturesite Gallery has recently moved to Jack London Village in Glen Ellen, only 10 minutes from the Sonoma Square, in eastern Sonoma County after 10 years at Cornerstone Sonoma in the southern Sonoma Valley under the name A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite now renamed, (more concisely), “Sculpturesite Gallery”.

The indoor gallery is located within a series of six concrete vats built in the early 1940s for fermenting grapes for Glen Ellen Winery, connected to form a single exhibition space. The aged concrete walls are enhanced with modern glass doors and natural wood accents.

Sculpturesite was founded by Brigitte Micmacker and John Denning. They created A New Leaf Gallery in Berkeley in 1990, to make quality, affordable sculpture available to Bay Area collectors, featuring internationally renowned and emerging sculptors. All of the artists are carefully selected based on their approach to the concept and craft of sculpture and the contribution they are making to the world of contemporary art. Sculptures in metal, steel sculptures, stainless steel, bronze art, kinetic sculptures, and sculptures in glass, ceramic, concrete, resin, wood, mixed media and more can be found both indoor and outdoors.
