The family acquired a 21 acre plot in the heart of Missouri Wine Country on the Hermann Wine route in 1994. Mr. (Nick) Bommarito and his daughter worked together to create a 25 year operation formerly known as "Bommarito Estate Almond Tree Winery".
In 2006 Cathleen Bommarito-Manley took the reins of winemaker for her family's winery Bommarito Estate Almond Tree Winery. She partnered with her father in managing and creating outstanding Missouri wines, thus taking her status up to be one of the highest awarded female winemakers in the state of Missouri. Each year was challenging but Cathleen reveled in the idea of making wonderful wines out of whatever came in from the vineyard. (Missouri's climate and outside variables always created distinctive characteristics in each grape variety).
Her formal education started at Missouri State University 1984 with a undergraduate Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and Management. And a continuation of education with UC Davis, California. With a certification in Enology and Viticulture. Completed the program at Missouri State University Vesta Extension. All the while having a career in travel and
hands on internship in the vineyard and cellar along side her Dad since 1996.
In 2015 completed the Sommelier Certification with the International Wine Guild.
Her father restructured the winery in 2015 and later closed the in 2017. In 2018 Bommarito Cellars Inc. was formed by Cathleen as owner and sole contributor.
So….. the story continues with a new idea and adventure!!!!! A rebirth!!!
Bommarito Cellars is now in production of a Brandy spirit based Lemon Liqueur that has been perfected over the years by Owner/Winemaker Cathleen Bommarito-Manley. A beautiful molding of lemon freshness with a sweetness of a dessert infusion that will settle the stomach after a night of imbibing of food and wine.
