YOUNTVILLE, Calif.

The Estate Yountville, home to Vintage House and Hotel Villagio, is expanding its seasoned culinary team with the addition of Katie Cotten as director of catering and conference services.

Cotten brings over thirteen years of experience to the role and a skillset honed by luxury experiences at famed iconic resorts. In this role, Cotten will oversee operations to assist meeting and event planners in producing unforgettable events in the stunning setting of Napa Valley, Calif.

“We are thrilled to have Katie Cotten lead our catering and conference team at The Estate Yountville,” said Steve Davino, general manager, The Estate Yountville. “Her extensive luxury hospitality experience will prove to be extremely valuable as we are seeing a large increase in event bookings at The Estate since its recent transformation of The Venues. Since Napa Valley offers a wonderful backdrop for any size event, Katie and her team can help with the details that make any occasion a memorable one.”

Cotten and her team will be implementing culinary services through new catering menus created by Executive Chef Greg Wiener for all events that take place at ‘The Venues at The Estate.’

The Venues make up a total of 55,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space, including The Pavilion, The Groezinger, The Barrel Room and a new addition arriving in Summer 2018, The Gallery.

Cotten joins The Estate Yountville from Montage Kapalua Resort and Spa in Hawaii where she was director of catering and conference services for the past four years. She also held culinary related roles at other prominent Hawaii properties including Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort and Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.

In addition to the two hotels, the Estate Yountville includes the V Marketplace, a retail lifestyle shopping and dining complex housed in the former 147-year-old Groezinger Winery.
