Cashew and Coconut Granola


We’re often asked how we came up with the name Beaujolais Granola. “Is there wine in it?”  We’re from California wine country, but alas, there’s no wine in our granola. Rather, our story goes a little something like this…

The original flavor of Cashew & Coconut made its debut way back when, at Café Beaujolais in the small coastal town of Mendocino, California and became a favorite with diners at the restaurant.

In 2006, David LaMonica acquired the restaurant along with this much-loved granola recipe. David, an accomplished chef, perfected the recipe to make it his own. Followers conveyed that this honeyed granola was the real deal and requested more flavors.  Soon thereafter, David decided to build a commercial kitchen in Sonoma wine country and began making five types of granola products along with panforte.

In February 2017, long-time food-industry pro Andrea Sarnataro joined the team and began training with David. In June, she acquired the business while David and Diane embarked on opening Salt & Stone, a “casual-chic” California eatery and oyster bar in Kenwood.  David remains a consultant to Andrea.
