ABOUT CHEF DUSTIN VALETTE
Valette began his restaurant career at the age of thirteen washing dishes at Catelli's in his hometown of Geyserville, California, and thus began the twenty-plus year culinary journey toward his dream of opening a restaurant dedicated to showcasing the rich bounty and beautiful ingredients of his Sonoma County roots.
Valette honed his craft in some of the most celebrated restaurants on the West Coast, including the Michelin-starred Aqua in San Francisco and Napa Valley's Bouchon. Valette is known for his exceptional ability to pair some of the country's best wines with his intense, flavorful and dynamic cuisine.
In 2015, Valette Restaurant opened its doors to the public, showcasing 47 years of combined restaurant experience, and a deep passion and dedication to Sonoma County and its food and wine purveyors and producers.
