The D’Avella family has been making wine since before they came from Italy to America in the early 1900s.  John has been making wine for the past 36 years. The style is “Full Bodied Italian Wine”, “Smooth as silk” . …… Ya know …… “YUMMY WINE”

Granger is a small town that grew because a railroad crossed a state road. The folks here still talk about how the train engineers used to stop the train to get a bite to eat and block traffic for miles. Well, they no longer block traffic while they eat dinner, they stop short of the highway crossing. But they still stop for dinner and you can too. Granger has grown into a community of some 30,000 people and we have the best restaurants in the area. And yes, that’s the owner in the kitchen.
