Clif Family Organic Farm grows heirloom peppers on their own farm in the Napa Valley to create these single varietal hot sauces. An heirloom sweet pepper, Jimmy Nardello are commonly used as a roasting pepper or eating raw. This pepper is full of delicious sweet pepper flavor without the burn. Add a dash to your Bloody Mary, spice up your vinaigrette or use as a condiment on vegetable and fish dishes.
The Jimmy Nardello Pepper was grown each year by Giuseppe and Angella Nardiello at their garden in the village of Ruoti, in Southern Italy. In 1887 they set sail with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life in the U.S. When they reached these shores, they settled and gardened in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and grew this same pepper that was named for their fourth son, Jimmy. This long, thin-skinned frying pepper dries easily and has such a rich flavor that this variety has been placed in “The Ark of Taste” by the Slow Food organization.

Clif Bar co-owner’s Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford began their love of food and wine with cycling adventures through Italy where long days of cycling would end in leisurely evenings of good wine, food and hospitality. As great lovers of food, wine and adventure, Gary and Kit sought to bring these memorable experiences to their Napa Valley home with their Clif Family tasting room and Bruschetteria food truck. Their organic farm and vineyards located high atop Howell Mountain provide a bounty of grapes, olives, fruit and vegetables to fuel our journey. The Clif Fmaily hopes you find time to slow down, fill your glass and spend an afternoon with them.
