INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is terroir?
The French term, “terroir” (pronounced tear-wah), is the term for the conditions that make a specific grape-growing site, and its wine, distinctive. It comes from a philosophy, originated in Europe, that a multitude of influences in nature surrounding a vineyard, or wine region, create a wine’s character. These natural factors include soil composition, day and nighttime temperatures, the amount of rainfall, the direction of the sun, just to name a few. Terroir explains why some of the best California Pinot Noir, for example, originate in the regions of Carneros and Russian River. They may be separated by about 30 miles but they share similar soils and experience the same cooling effects from bodies of water nearby – either the ocean, in the case of the Russian River area, or San Pablo Bay for the Carneros region. Both regions produce rich and complex wines made from Pinot Noir grapes that reflect their similar terroir. Over centuries of winemaking around the world, it has been learned that the uniqueness of a specific location is what creates the “personality” of a wine. Although the French word “terrior” has no English translation, it has become a term used everywhere to describe this interaction of the many factors that influence a grape-growing site. So, the next time you taste a great wine, whether Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel, take notice of where the grapes were grown. If a distinct site is listed on the label as the origin of the grapes, such as the name of a specific vineyard or an official wine geographic region (also known as an appellation) know that you are tasting more than just the grapes that made the wine. You are experiencing “terrior” – everything in nature that makes that site or region, unique.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

ZAP Festival – A New Zinfandel Experience
Zinfandel Advocates & Producers (ZAP) announces the annual Zinfandel Festival has been replaced by the all new Zinfandel Experience with a new format and location for tasting and experiencing America’s heritage wine. Set at both the scenic Presidio, that overlooks the San Francisco Bay and the iconic Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, the Zinfandel Experience has been redesigned to deliver more intimate and meaningful interactions for participants and producers. “The new locations provide beautiful and historic settings and the reimagined events, with their focus on tasting experiences, will offer discovery for both casual and devoted wine fans in an environment of warm camaraderie,” says Mark Vernon, President of Ridge Vineyards and ZAP President. “The biggest change occurs on Saturday, where the Grand Tasting of the past has now been divided into three distinct and informative tracks in three separate buildings at the Presidio. It’s a deep-dive tasting experience with no more than 350 people in each session. No more standing in long lines or big noisy rooms. Each session gives ample opportunity to informally visit and sample with each winery,” Vernon notes. This one-of-a-kind gathering is America’s ultimate celebration of all things Zinfandel. Zinfandel’s expression from vineyard site to vineyard site, as well as its ripening pattern, is unique to each region and location. As a result, participants can experience a wide range of red wine styles from lighter rosé, to elegant and refined, to intense and complex. ZAP has proudly produced the most prestigious single varietal wine event in the nation for the last 22 years. “After listening to producers, members and attendee feedback, we’re thrilled to elevate the long-revered Festival to a more intimate experience. We’ve also created a special venue for our Advocate members at the Inn at the Presidio, called the Heritage Club Lounge, in recognition and appreciation of their year-round support,” notes Rebecca Robinson, ZAP’s Executive Director. The Zinfandel Experience consists of four events over three days: • Thursday, January 23, 6 to 8:30 p.m. Epicuria Food & Zinfandel Pairings • Friday, January 24, 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Flights! Forums of Flavors • Friday, January 24, 5:30 to 10 p.m. – Evening with the Winemakers: Fabulous Forties, A Benefit with Taste • Saturday, January 25, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. - Zinfandel Experience Tasting Tracks - Sensory Tasting: A fun and interactive foray into flavor. - Reserve & Barrel Tasting: A tasting of the new and rare. - Terroir Tasting: Expand your regional expertise. To learn more about the all new Zinfandel Experience and order tickets, visit www.zinfandel.org/experience or call (530) 274-4900.

BY JOSH STEIN

Winter Fun in the Cellar
Winery operations are year-round, but the intensity of harvest, which is so dependant upon time and speed, gives way to a much more gentle process as our winter rains begin, cellars get more chilly and damp, and wines begin to finish their primary and secondary fermentations and are “racked” into barrels. Alternatively, wines fermented in tanks which are meant to finish those processes in the barrel are transferred off the “gross lees,” the solid by-products of making wine, which include dead yeast cells and various nutrients, so as to allow the oak’s influence to be in the mix earlier in the production process before the wine is even completely made. Regardless of which route toward oak reds and some whites take, the reasons for “barreling down” involve a slowdown into “cellar time.” And thus simultaneously begins a series of decisions since the choice of using barrels is just that, a choice, and one with many subtle logistical and not-sosubtle cost options available to the winemaker or cellarmaster. Before going into those options, let’s review what going into barrel does for a wine. While almost all reds spend some time in contact with oak, only some whites do. Oak imparts an underlying creaminess, and time in contact with it encourages the softening malolactic fermentation to begin and to complete since Oenococcus oeni, the organism which acutally does the acid shift, is resident in oak; this serves to “soften” the wine since lactic acid is half as strong as malic (think milk versus apple juice) and provides perhaps another of the reasons barrels of oak were chosen for storage in antiquity. Lastly, tannin formation and interchange takes place between the barrels and the wine, and time in barrel in combination with the micro-oxygenation as the wood breathes serve to help create a chemically stable, silkier finished wine. Think of a slowly bobbing tea bag versus one pushed against the cup with a spoon—the slower method produces tannins less rough on the tongue. With that as context, whether oak has been used as a primary fermentation vessel or not, when ready to age in contact with wood, the wine is transfered either from tank to barrel or from barrel to barrel. Gravity-fed wineries do these processes through the manipulation of space to allow the wine to literally drain downwards without mechanical aids; most other wineries use pumps of various designs to move wine horizontally or vertically around their production spaces into barrels. Some wineries go the opposite direction, concatenating their wines into larger lots held in large oak or redwood vats or steel tanks, with or without oak stave inserts. Here is an example of where creativity and cost realities must meet. A new, imported barrel is north of $1,000, and that barrel will be used at most four times for any discernible “oakiness” it would impart. Think of a storm-battered piece of wood, only what’s left in the barrel after wine has been in it for a year or two resembles more a dark, yucky wine aquarium than driftwood. Once exhausted, a barrel can be shaved and re-coopered for an additional cost, but it’s just that, an additional cost which is dependent on the cooper’s skills to be done properly or else the wines stored in the “rejuvenated” barrel will take on “port-like” overtones. This is why some wineries choose instead to use older, “neutal” barrels or small steel tanks with various kinds of oak adjuncts like sticks, beads or cubes inserted, or they will use larger staves with notches, hanging on a lip around the edge of a large steel tank. Fundamentally, as the weather turns, what is mechanically a simple process – separating liquid from most of the solids from fermentation – becomes a much more complicated cultural and thus financial process. How much of a difference this makes in consumer awareness and apprecation is, of course, subject to debate. What is undeniable, however, is the impact of oak on finished wine – and its impact to the bottom line for the winemaker. Consider that when next looking at a barrel chai: it’s not just a room of wood and liquid – it’s the recorder of winegrowing decisions (and costs). Enjoy!

POPE VALLEY WINERY
Turn left and go back 100 years
Along a winding country road, up an unpaved drive and past Gus, a big, friendly, chocolate lab, you’ll find one of the most unpretentious, down-to earth tasting rooms around. The Pope Valley, one of the California wine region’s hidden treasures, is home to the Pope Valley Winery. This serene, bucolic setting offers a wine tasting experience far, far away from the ostentatious fare to be found at some of the more well-known wine country destinations. Here, you will be treated less like a visitor and more like a friend. To reach the Pope Valley Winery requires a leisurely country drive that is, in itself, a significant part of the experience. Winding through picturesque fields, undulating vineyards and oak-studded hills, one gets the feeling of being transported back in time. The pace here is slower, more peaceful than the flurry and commotion found along the main thoroughfares of the Napa Valley. Photo opportunities present themselves around every bend in the road. A visit to Pope Valley Winery allows wine lovers to step back in time and experience 40 acres of history. The bubbling sounds of Haus Creek can be heard as you roam the grounds of this historic winery. The original farmhouse still graces the property, as well as a blacksmith’s workshop, complete with the tools of the trade. The winery itself is housed in a historic building that was designed; before electricity was brought to the site. It was fashioned as a three-story gravitational flow winery with a handdug cave, to allow the wine to flow from crusher, to press, to barrel. The Pope Valley Winery was founded in 1897 by Ed Haus as Burgundy Winery & Olive Oil Factory. A century later in 1997, the Eakle family, purchased the historic winery and gave it a new life as Pope Valley Winery. In 2009, the next generation of Eakle’s stepped in. Currently siblings – David Eakle as winemaker along with consulting winemaker Shaun Richardson and Diana

GLORIA FERRER CAVES & VINEYARDS
‘Winery of the Year’ by Wine & Spirits Magazine
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Open Daily 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. 23555 Carneros Hwy (121), Sonoma, CA 95476 707-933-1917 | www.gloriaferrer.com For reservations or additional information about these events and others, including various tours, call (707) 933-1931 or email special.events@gloriaferrer.com.

Greeting you at the doorway to Sonoma wine country sits one of its jewels, Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards. Sparkling wine is the perfect choice for celebrating special occasions, but because it’s so food friendly, it’s ideal for everyday enjoyment and a visit here is the best way to finish your holidays! Exuding Spanish charm while retaining the relaxed, casual elegance for which Sonoma County is known, the winery experience begins the moment you drive through the gates and wind past the olive trees. A harmonious marriage of Catalan and California mission design, Gloria Ferrer Caves and Vineyards is inspired by the Ferrer family’s 11th-century farmhouse in Sant Sandurni d’Anoia, Spain. They have just been named one of the Top 100 Wineries of the year by Wine & Spirits Magazine and have more than 30 different wines score over 90 points from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the sight of a bottle of bubbles at the table is an engaging, fun and simple way to elevate any experience, be it an intimate dinner, gathering of friends or even larger dinner event. Gloria Ferrer’s 2008 Brut Rosé is the ideal sparkling wine for all of these. This gorgeous, almost copper-colored rosé is full-bodied and rich in raspberry and strawberry flavors. The aromas and flavors of this wine are strongly influenced by the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend, while a small amount of Chardonnay contributes structure and an extended finish. This is a winery exclusive and while you are visiting Gloria Ferrer, be sure to check out all their gourmet food gifts which pair perfectly with a bottle of their wines. Estate olive oil and boxes of chocolates line the shelves but the Blanc de Noirs wine filled truffles are absolutely divine! Gloria Ferrer will also host another fun-filled Valentine’s Day event so be sure to visit their website for details and ticket information at www.gloriaferrer.com. Established more than 25 years ago, Gloria Ferrer was the first sparkling wine house built in Carneros, but its history goes back much further. Take any one of their expertly guided tours to learn more about their winegrowing history, the Carneros appellation, time-

REFLECTING THE GOOD LIFE
Artist Thomas Arvid comes to Napa Valley
There was something about the color red that appealed to Atlantabased artist Thomas Arvid when he decided to choose a focus for his artwork. While his first oil paintings materialized images of CocaCola® cans, Converse® tennis shoes, and Radio Flyer® wagons, it was Arvid’s still life of a red wine bottle that caught the public’s eye. The wine painting was purchased before it was done drying on the easel. So did the next one. And the one after that. It was then that Arvid knew he was on to something. “Wine is great subject because people are familiar with it. They really connect to it,” says the self-taught Arvid who was named one of the top “25 Artists You Should Know” by U.S. Art magazine. “My paintings speak to the special moments that people share when they share wine.” Today, Arvid’s work focuses primarily on still lifes of wine bottles, wine glasses, corks and corkscrews, all of which are created with startling precision. Even the smallest detail gets significant attention, from the delicately beaded bubbles lining each glass of wine, to the minuscule pits in every cork. More than 50 art galleries represent his larger-than-life paintings in the United States, Canada and Japan, including Thomas Arvid Fine Art Gallery in Marietta, Ga., which is considered one of the most successful boutique art publishing companies in the country. Currently, collectors are willing to wait years for one of his originals. “It’s amazing that my collectors find a personal fulfillment in my work,” marvels Arvid. “Especially when I’m just doing what I love.”

Meet the artist
On Friday, January 31, from 1 to 4 p.m., Thomas Arvid will be painting at North Bay Gallery in Yountville. Everyone is welcome to meet Thomas and to watch him create his latest masterpiece. He will also be signing any purchases made that day. “Thomas is such a remarkable artist,” says North Bay Gallery owner, Donna Eremian.” He is so talented and has such an incredible gift. I consider him to be the pre-eminent painter of all things wine. Big, bold and larger than life close-ups portray a hyper-realistic style and casual composition. I am always amazed by each new Arvid painting and how he captures the reflections of light in each wine bottle and glass!” You are invited to see the large selection of Thomas Arvid’s artwork at North Bay Gallery located at VMarketplace in Yountville, Napa Valley. The gallery has his newest paintings and also some hard to find sold-out works that collectors are looking for. On Saturday, February 1, Thomas Arvid will make his annual appearance at Silver Oak Winery at the Oakville Napa Valley location as part of the winery’s Release Day event. The artist is a great admirer of Silver Oak’s wines and has captured many of the winery’s iconic images on canvas throughout his painting career. Guests can observe Arvid paint a work-in progress while enjoying Silver Oak’s newly released 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicious food, wine and music will be a part of this traditional celebration. North Bay Gallery specializes in North American artists that include a unique array of contemporary hand blown art glass, handcrafted and fine jewelry, Frogman bronze sculptures, metal wall art and paintings. A second location is in Sonoma on the town square. For more information, contact North Bay Gallery at (707) 945-0145 or visit the website at www.northbaygallery.net.

Celebrate Truffle Season
4th Annual Napa Truffle Festival
World Class Cuisine Meets Cutting Edge Truffle Science, January 17-20
Truffles anyone? - not the chocolate kind, the real thing: black Périgord truffles (aka “black diamonds”). These rare and delectable fungi will again be the center of attention at the fourth annual Napa Truffle Festival – bringing together a unique gathering of leading truffle cultivation experts and scientists, mycologists, special guests from the food and wine world, and internationally renowned Michelin star chefs who will discuss, examine, probe, demonstrate and, finally, prepare the truffles to be feasted upon for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Science of Canine Truffle Scent Location and Practical Implementation
A portion of the seminar will include truffle dog training considerations, led by Alana McGee, ATC’s Master Dog Trainer. Buffet lunch on Friday and Saturday truffle orchard tour/dog training demo at Sinskey Vineyards are included.

Welcome Reception – La Toque
The Festival officially kicks off with an exclusive welcome reception on La Toque’s elegant terrace where guests will sip local wines and sample an array of delectable truffle appetizers while hobnobbing with truffle experts, food gurus and the guest star chefs (sans toques).

 FRIDAY, JANUARY 17  New this year: Scientific Grower Truffle Cultivation Seminar
Truffle orchards are highly profitable, and are an excellent and viable way to diversify land usage. The demand for European black truffles, the most sought after truffles in the world (aka “the diamond of the kitchen”), far exceeds supply. Current black truffle production is almost exclusively in Europe, but now these truffles can be cultivated in select areas around the world. North America, especially regions like Napa and Sonoma, offer particularly suitable climates/soil. Designed for potential truffle growers, this in-depth seminar provides a detailed technical overview of the science and methodology involved in truffle cultivation. Presented by American Truffle Company’s Chief Scientist Dr. Paul Thomas and Managing Director Robert Chang, you will learn about the myriad of scientific factors one must consider to successfully grow truffles.

 SATURDAY, JANUARY 18  All About Truffles – For the curious and the hungry, and anyone who loves truffles (the fungi kind)
Come learn all about truffles – the cuisine, the sex and the science! In this exciting, comprehensive primer about all things truffle, you will get tips on cooking with truffles from our Michelin star host chef Ken Frank who will discuss how to handle fresh truffles in the kitchen, as well as common myths and misconceptions about the various truffle species and “products.” You’ll also get a glimpse into the science of truffles (including “sex and truffles”!) with worldrenowned truffle scientist Dr. Paul Thomas and truffle expert Robert Chang; plus why science plays a key role in how truffles are grown and harvested.

Continental breakfast, All About Truffles seminar, winery truffle lunch, truffle orchard tour and dog training demonstration are all included.

 MONDAY, JANUARY 20  Napa Truffle Festival Marketplace – Oxbow Public Market, 10am-2pm, free
Monday concludes the weekend with a lively Festival Marketplace at Oxbow Public Market – showcasing the local wine, artisanal vendors and specialty food products of the Napa Valley. No charge for admission – everyone is welcome! Come see cooking demos, shop for truffle accoutrements and sample a diverse assortment of dishes prepared by the Marketplace chefs. Plus, taste wines and sign up for a chance to win a Marketplace Basket chock-full of goodies, or a real black diamond (truffle, that is)! Guests can book special room rates online.

Winery Truffle Lunch at Nickel & Nickel
Winery Tour/Tasting and Truffle Lunch & Wine Pairing Lunch will be prepared by Nickel & Nickel Chef Trevor Eliason with Michelin star guest Chef Carrie Nahabedian of NAHA, Chicago

Truffles & Wine Dinner at La Toque
At the heart of the Festival is the Saturday night Truffles & Wine Dinner, hosted by Michelin star Chef Ken Frank of La Toque, featuring a multicourse truffle menu – each course prepared by a Michelin star chef and perfectly paired with wines. In addition to Chef Ken, this year’s star chef lineup includes Alessandro Boglione, Ristorante al Castello, Italy; Carrie Nahabedian, NAHA, Chicago; and Jarad Gallagher, Chez TJ, Mountain View.

What are Truffles?
Truffles are a kind of underground mushroom that grow on the roots of certain host tree species, particularly oak and hazelnut. They are highly prized by top chefs and connoisseurs around the world for their exquisite flavor, and command extremely high prices. There are hundreds of varieties of truffles, but the fruiting body of a select few, particularly the European black and white truffles, are highly prized, with demand far exceeding supply. In a 60 Minute segment that aired in 2012, truffles were dubbed “the most expensive food in the world,” the allure and scarcity of which has created a black market - “none of which has dampened the appetite for this prized fungi.” Current European black truffle production is almost exclusively in Europe – predominately France, followed by Spain and Italy, with small amounts in Slovenia, Croatia and Australia. But now, with proper science, these truffles can be cultivated in select areas around the world. Northern California, especially Napa and Sonoma, offer particularly suitable climates/soil.

Tedeschi Family Winery Brings Home The Gold!
Tedeschi Family Winery, entered four of their eight wines into the highly respected 2013 Grand Harvest Awards wine competition and came home with four medals! 2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir won Gold, Best of Class and Best of Show while their current releases of Napa Valley Merlot, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Russian River Chardonnay each took their own medals. “Making classic, old-world style wines – whether it be red, white or rosé – has been a passion of mine since I first began my winemaking career 15 years ago,” says David Sundberg, Consulting Winemaker for the Tedeschi Family.

Tedeschi Family Winery
The Tedeschi Family Winery is a very small, family-owned winery producing less than 800 cases a year in the style of the “old-world.” Their flagship wine is being made from the estate’s dry farmed, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Eugene Tedeschi’s parents settled in Calistoga in 1919, emigrating from Pisa, Italy. Eugene acquired the property that currently houses the winery and family home in 1951, where he planted the family’s first grapevines among established fruit trees. In 1991, Emil, Eugene’s son returned as steward after building one of Hawaii’s most successful wineries: Tedeschi Winery – Maui. The Calistoga winery has become the passion and single focus of Emil’s two sons Emilio and Mario along with a very interested daughter, Elaine. “Making wines our grandparents would be proud of is what we are aiming for. Traditionally made, old-world wines that can be enjoyed with a variety of foods, good company and from our wine cellar for many years”, says Mario Tedeschi, Winemaker. Together, with Emilio acting as General Manager and Mario making the wine, they have sought out and committed to handcrafting old-world style wines from several small and neighboring vineyards to produce Merlot, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Semillon, Chardonnay, Rosé of Pinot Noir and a dessert wine from Tempranillo. All of the vineyards are specially selected and handtended. Tedeschi Family Winery is located at 2779 Grant Street Calistoga, CA 94515, just a half a mile south of Old Faithful Geyser. Visitors are invited to the winery daily by appointment from 10:30 to 5 for tasting. There is no commercial signage, so look for the address (2779 Grant St) to enjoy the winery’s private setting & picnic area!

Grand Harvest Awards
Hosted by Vineyard & Winery Management, the 23rd Annual Grand Harvest Awards issued only 53 Best of Class awards including 139 Double Gold, 25 Gold, and 432 Silver medals. Established in 1990, the wine competition is based on terroir and the awards indicate the individuality of each of the various regions/appellations. Total entries topped nearly 1,050 different wines. The Grand Harvest Awards are based on the concept of terroir as judges recognize this influence while tasting wines with others of the

same appellation. With cross-regional competition removed, the inherent quality of wines can be seen without the influences that sometimes eclipse even a wine of very high quality. Wines are judged in the context of their viticultural region in order to accomplish two things: to recognize the complexities and nuances of regional wines, and also to measure the influence of regional soil and weather characteristics on the taste and quality of individual wines. During judging, wines were grouped by AVA and varietal. Judges were told what regions the wines were from while they tasted. According to GHA spokesperson, Christopher Sawyer, “On behalf of the 25 wine judges who participated at this year’s event, we are thrilled that the impact of the awards handed out at the Grand Harvest Awards 2013 will build momentum for the vineyard owners growing the grapes, the winemakers who craft the wines, the sommeliers and wine buyers who follow the results of the competition and, ultimately, the consumers who get to enjoy the aromas and flavors of the finished wines produced in the famous regions of America and around the globe.” See vwmmedia.com for more information on Grand Harvest Awards. Tedeschi Family Winery is at 2779 Grant Street in Calistoga. For more information, visit www.TedeschiFamilyWinery.com. “Like” them on Facebook!

Perfect Pairs
The best way to finish any meal is with dessert and Executive Chef and owner Greg Cole has provided a decadent chocolate after dinner treat that is perfect any time of the year. This dish is often served as a special at Cole’s Chop House and is incredibly rich making it the perfect dessert for chocolate lovers. It’s easy to make and can be made in advance which saves time in the kitchen. The wine pairing suggestions for this dish are two Zinfandels from Storybook Mountain Vineyards: 2010 Napa Estate Reserve Zinfandel and the Executive Chef and Owner Greg Cole 2010 Napa Estate Mayacamas Range Zinfandel. “We’ve offered Jerry Seps’ wines for many years. No matter the party size, we’ve got a Storybook Zinfandel to pair with this dessert. Jerry is one of the nicest guys I know and his Zinfandels are among my favorites,” says Chef Greg Cole. The bittersweet chocolate paté is the ideal complement to the spice notes found in both Zinfandels and highlight the silky richness of the chocolate. The Estate Reserve Zinfandel’s pure berry and dark cherry aromas entice you into this wine while the oak notes and varietal spice and pepper add complexity. The Mayacamas Range Zinfandel is a peppery Zin and possesses all the richness and fruit plus the depth and structure of a well-balanced wine. Storybook Mountain has established a world-wide reputation for the consistently high quality of its wines. Their sought after estate wines are carefully hand-crafted from choice grapes grown in certified organic estate vineyards surrounding the winery. Proprietors Jerry and Sigrid Seps’ wines are famed for intensity and longevity. Raspberries, black cherries and spice are the essence of their complex, well balanced and elegant wines. Greg Cole also owns Celadon, another long-time downtown Napa favorite. Cole’s is a classic American steak house offering 21-day dry-aged Prime beef along with fresh seafood and Berkshire pork. Celadon features a seasonally influenced menu focusing on the flavors of the Mediterranean, Asia and America. Both restaurants are Michelin Guide recommended and are a favorite among locals and visitors for their excellent hospitality, exclusive wines and bourbons and of course their delicious food that is always spot on. These restaurants are always busy during dinner service so reservations are recommended and can be made online at www.celadonnapa.com or www.coleschophouse.com.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | NAPA VALLEY

Winemaking Family Perseveres After A Challenging 9 Years
Dreams do come true: Ryan and Crystal Waugh were determined to build a unique wine community and offer the ultimate winery experience.
September 3 marked the end of a nine-year journey and the beginning of another for Ryan and Crystal Waugh who fought through massive adversity to build a winery in the hills above Napa Valley. Their dream of building a winery to reflect the true essence of wine (community) has opened to incredible accolades: • “A unique and exclusive new destination.” • “Fabulous wines, a fascinating underground tour and a truly spectacular view!” • “The panorama over the valley, the mountains and to the city beyond is simply stunning!” • “The range and quality of the four family-run, boutique wineries is amazing, the stories fascinating and the hosts are genuine ‘people people.’ I will definitely return with more friends.” • “What an experience! We visited the caves on day nine of their opening. If day nine is this great, the future-holy cow!” • “Great insider view of the caves followed by a crazy good Reserve tasting on the terrace – the view was beyond description. A fun, knowledgeable and amazing host topped off by kicking back with Ryan Waugh! We left feeling like family. We’ll be back and are eager to see the vision unfold.” Set inside a fully underground winery, The Caves at Soda Canyon brings together four first-generation winemaking families who produce, store, bottle and sell their wines out of The Caves: Buoncristiani Family Winery, Lobo, Patland Estate and Waugh Family Wines. The experience starts with views of Soda Canyon before opening a door into the side of a mountain. After exploring deep into the caves, another door opens underground and exits on the other side of the mountain where you are perched directly above the Napa Valley with unobstructed views all the way to San Francisco. In its simplest form, The Caves at Soda Canyon is a custom crush winery where winemakers can come to produce, store and bottle their wines. However, this custom crush winery doesn’t stop there: The Caves is a place each family calls home. When the first fruit arrived on September 3, 2013, the tears of joy and the excitement of

a first harvest could be heard throughout Soda Canyon and the Napa Valley. After nine long years, the light at the end of the tunnel is shining brightly. Tours and tastings at The Caves at Soda Canyon are by appointment only and can be made online at www.thecavesatsodacanyon.com or by email at crystal@thecavesatsodacanyon.com.

Ca’ Momi Napa Valley Releases Reserve Napa Valley Wines
Ca’ Momi Napa Valley has introduced three new Napa Valley reserve wines to their portfolio: Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Chardonnay and Reserve Pinot Noir. The wines showcase the winemaking expertise of Dario De Conti and Stefano Migotto. Limited in production, the wines are allocated for on-premise accounts in major markets across the country, including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois and New York. “Our wines have been winning major awards at competitions throughout the USA,” says De Conti, “and we are proud of this recognition and respect. We created these new wines with an even higher level of refinement in mind. We began by identifying, and in two cases purchasing, specific vineyards in Carneros for their truly remarkable fruit. These became the foundation of our Reserve Wines – wines we believe will compare favorably with some of the best wines in the world.” image of Ca’ Momi, the owners' home in Veneto, Italy. The Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a suggested retail price of $68, the Napa Valley Reserve Chardonnay is $38, and the Napa Valley Reserve Pinot Noir is $52. Ca’ Momi is owned and operated by three Italians – Dario De Conti, Valentina GuoloMigotto and Stefano Migotto – whose work is a tribute to the land of their birth and the food and wines that they love. Ca’ Momi’s owners came to the Napa Valley to blend the spirit of their Italian heritage, the obsessive care of their Old-World winemaking style, and Napa Valley’s wine grapes – which they believe to be the world's finest. Ca’ Momi wines capture the vision and expertise of cowinemakers Dario and Stefano. In Italy, wine is an integral part of life. Ca’ Momi wines are meant to be enjoyed each night with family, friends, conversation and laughter. Ca’ Momi Winery has been named one of the Top 10 Hot Small Brands for 2012 by Wine Business Monthly – a list that honors wineries that are innovative, curious, adventurous and, most of all, producing delicious wine. To learn more about Ca’ Momi, visit their Dominari website at www.camomi.com.

The grapes for the new Ca’ Momi reserve wines were hand-selected from several premium vineyards across the Napa Valley, including the two vineyards Ca’ Momi recently purchased in the Napa Carneros. “These first Reserve releases are a landmark for us,” says De Conti. “They are not only our first reserve wines; they also capture what we hope will be the future of Ca’ Momi reserves: great wines made from the fruit of our own vineyards.” The wines are labeled with a boldly iconic

ROMBAUER VINEYARDS
Great Napa Valley Wines Decade after Decade
BY JOSH STEIN

ROMBAUER VINEYARDS Wine tasting daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m 3522 Silverado Trail North, St. Helena CA 94574 1-800-622-2206 | www.rombauer.com

Rombauer Vineyards is one of those wineries: everyone has known for more than three decades that if it says Rombauer on a bottle, you can be guaranteed a high quality, soulful wine to go with food, bringing enjoyment to all who partake. The Rombauer philosophy is called the “Joy of Wine”-crafting releases meant to pair with meals, echoing Great Aunt Irma Rombauer’s belief that the joy of life is the pursuit of what is best to taste and enjoy. Now at year thirty-four and known for decades as a Napa Valley “must visit,” it’s clear to see – and taste – that they have found a winning formula. How? By keeping the emphasis on what matters: drinkable wines and an enjoyable experience – the food and the people matter most, not the attitude! The proof is the gold and doublegold medals and high scores their releases have all earned, not to mention their status as one of Wine & Spirits Magazine’s top restaurant wine selections in their annual poll. The winery itself is on the north-east Silverado Trail, giving a fun drive and showing off glorious views and uncrowded experiences on the “road less travelled.” The hilltop winery and tasting room, looking out over the heritage Zinfandel vineyard visitors drive through along the way, are built over more than a mile’s worth of caves dug into the hillside. Picnic tables and a trellised gazebo let you know from the outset what matters most: relaxed enjoyment. Tastings are available daily at three separate tasting bars in the tasting room, as is the self-guided garden stroll through the more than one hundred plant and flower species, and the views of the Mayacamas are photo-worthy, for sure. A flight of classic releases await. The wines are just as much a standout as the views, and fitting in with their ethos, the Rombauers really have thought through the logistics of pairing wine and food, not just in terms of varietals but also in offering multiple bottle sizes, ranging from 375 milliliter half-bottles, to the standard 750 milliliter bottle we all know so well, to 1.5-liter magnums and even larger formats for occasions requiring something extra special. What awaits are several different Chardonnays, Merlots, Zinfandels and a range of Cabernets and Cab-based bottlings, including the best of vintage red blend, Le Meilleur du Chai. There are also two terrific sweets, a Zinfandel port and the Late Harvest Chardonnay known simply and unsurprisingly as Joy. Koerner Rombauer III, the next generation, has stepped into maintaining the winery’s way of doing things with aplomb. Lots of wineryonly releases await, and visitors in search of the “real” Napa experience need look no further. Unlike a lot of other places throughout the Valley, many of which simply don’t yet have enough vintages under their belt, the winery has managed to find a balance between a distinguished past and new, exciting bottlings. The result is a Napa Valley standard-bearer which is quite consistent in making great wines. There’s a reason the name Rombauer brings such great associations and why they’re still winning so many golds after three decades; come taste for yourself and find out why – you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Nose, Legs, Body! Wins Award for Excellence
Nose, Legs, Body! Know Wine Like The Back of Your Hand, the new book by Wine Country This Week magazine columnist, Len Napolitano, has been awarded the Benjamin Franklin Digital Award Silver Seal of Excellence by IBPA, the Independent Book Publishers Association, in recognition of distinction and innovation in electronic book publishing. The book’s print edition has become a “best seller” in winery tasting rooms across the U.S. since first becoming available in July 2013. Recognized in the non-fiction category, Nose, Legs, Body! ($5.99 e-book, $14.99 print; June 2013) was highlighted for its clear and simple approach to educating readers about wine. As IBPA judges noted in the review, “The author knows his subject and it shows. He writes with authority, but in a tone that is friendly and approachable. Thoroughly enjoyed reading his content, learned a lot about the subject, and feel that it provides good value and an interesting read.” The Benjamin Franklin Digital Award recognizes the book’s excellence in achieving its purpose and meeting its intended audience’s needs. Napolitano believes as readers begin to understand wine and appreciate its potential to complement so much in life, new possibilities open up for joyful experiences in socializing, dining and everyday living. The book helps strengthen readers’ passion for wine by knowing its most pertinent terms, processes and styles; helps them gain confidence in making wine selections – at restaurants, wine shops or online; improves wine and food pairing experiences; and teaches wine subtleties through experiential instruction inside each chapter. The author, former “wineologist” on TVs Fine Living Network, takes readers from wine beginner to wine savvy fitting a bounty of useful information into 50 concise answers to common, yet critical, wine questions. Judged by industry professionals, the honored entries have been scrutinized by individuals representing expertise in editorial, technology and design. Nose, Legs, Body! is available on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and at select Gelson’s supermarkets throughout greater Los Angeles. It is also available on the book’s website, wineology.com.

TASTING ROOM OF THE WEEK

DELORIMIER WINERY
BY DAWN MARIE CARLSON

Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 2001 California 128, Geyserville, CA 95441 (707) 857-2000 | www.delorimierwinery.com

DeLorimier is the winery to visit when in Sonoma County with a fabulous line of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Primitivo and their signature, Mosaic Meritage. Savor their artisan wines in the lovely tasting room surrounded by vineyards with spectacular Alexander Valley views. Enjoy the rotating art exhibitions on display from local artists in the gallery, which adds another layer to the wine tasting experience here. Fun and education is the basis of all wine enjoyment at deLorimier. Alexander Valley, known as “California’s Bordeaux,” is a genuine mosaic of soil types and microclimate due to the local landscape. Some of the finest grapes in the world are grown here making this a winemaker’s dream location for producing world-class wines. When Ken and Diane Wilson discovered this property, they knew at once that this would be their new Cabernet Sauvignon showcase. It is their intent to produce wines known more for the character of the estate rather than the varietal content. Alexander Valley is becoming the most sought out fruit in all of California and deLorimier Winery represents a diverse collection of varietals illustrating this. Private tours for six to twelve guests ($25 plus tax) is the best way to experience the best deLorimier has to offer, featuring a property and production tour ending in a barrel tasting in the cellar room. Wine tasting follows with a cheese and chocolate pairing in the tasting room. Perhaps you might want to enjoy your picnic lunch on the back patio and relax near the vineyards. VIP tours ($125) are also available, which include a four-hour luxury limousine tour visiting four Wilson Artisan Wineries with their private wine educator for six to twelve guests. If you are looking for a great place to host a special event of any type, corporate event, weddings or private dinners, the estate vineyard is your perfect destination. In addition, the Wilson Artisan Wineries guesthouses are available for

accommodations amongst the vineyards for the full wine country experience. Please contact the winery for fees and reservations. Al deLorimier founded deLorimier Winery in 1986 and precisely planned the winery and vineyards and developed it into the estate it is today. Ken and Diane Wilson acquired the property in 2008. The production facility is set up for blending and aging many small lots of wine. With their focus on single vineyard designate Cabernets, winemakers Diane Wilson and Antoine Favero combined their talents to produce award-winning artisan wines.

Award-Winning Wines
At the 2013 Sonoma County Harvest Fair, the 2011 Reserve Chardonnay Stuhlmuler Vineyard won a Double Gold Medal; and Gold Medals awarded for the 2010 Mosaic Meritage, the 2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Preston Ranch, the 2011 Zinfandel

Harris Kratka Vineyard and the 2011 Zinfandel Alexander Valley. The deLorimier Winery features specials on their wines, including case specials on the Sonoma County Chardonnay and Merlot. In addition, wine club members have access to vineyard lodging, limited release wines and receive incredible discounts at each of the sister wineries.

In addition to being an eco-friendly way of serving, the wine does not go through a bottling line which can mute aromas and flavors for a short period of time. Wine goes straight from the blending tank to keg and can be enjoyed immediately. Located in Northern Sonoma County with 190 vintners and 50 lodgings throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys, the Wine Road boasts a number of these options for wine in kegs:
• INMAN FAMILY WINES – Russian River Valley Inman Family Wines makes their Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris available to local restaurants in kegs. Inman Family Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris served from keg can currently be found at SHED in Healdsburg. • DELOACH VINEYARDS – Russian River Valley DeLoach Vineyards offers wine in a miniature French oak barrel called Barrel-to-Barrel. A rotating option of two red varietals, dispensed from the winery’s tasting room barrel, comes in a three-liter bag in a box. • DRY CREEK VINEYARD – Dry Creek Valley Dry Creek Vineyard currently produces Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel in kegs for a limited number of markets including California, Illinois and Colorado. • ACORN WINERY – Russian River Valley ACORN bottles wine in reusable five-gallon kegs for restaurants to use on their glass pours list. These wines can be found at Bluestem in San Francisco and Spoonbar in Healdsburg.

Made up of 190 vintners and 50 lodgings throughout the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys in Sonoma County, something is always going on along the Wine Road. To plan your next trip, visit: www.wineroad.com.

SONOMA VALLEY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Season of the Olive Arrives in the Sonoma Valley
Two-Month Celebration of All Things Olive Returns to Sonoma for its Thirteenth Year
The thirteenth annual Sonoma Valley Olive Season, a celebration of the olive harvest and an agricultural and epicurean showcase, will take place January through February. Encompassing a range of exceptional events, culinary thrills and Valley-wide promotions – from the Blessing of the Olives ceremony to an elegant Feast of the Olive Dinner – the upcoming Season of the Olive promises to transform the winter months in Sonoma into a celebration of the senses. Key events and promotions are planned Valley-wide in honor of the two-month celebration. On Saturday, January 4, the traditional Blessing of the Olives ceremony took place within the historic Mission San Francisco Solano. Local restaurants and lodging properties are offering olive season packages and promotions, including exclusive olive-inspired menu items and spa treatments throughout the winter months. Throughout the Season of the Olive, visitors will have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves for an olive curing workshop, attend festive events such as the annual Martini Madness competition, and enjoy an array of activities from olive oil tastings and art exhibits to live music, family activities and food and wine pairings. In addition, guests will have the daily opportunity to taste local, freshly pressed olive oil at The Olive Press, Figone's Olive Oil Company and B.R. Cohn Winery & Olive Oil Company nearly every day throughout the season. A complete list of events and promotions can be found at www.olivefestival.com. Season of the Olive favorites slated to return this season include the highly-anticipated Feast of the Olive Dinner on January 25, 2014 at Ramekins Culinary School. This multi-course, olive-inspired ceremonial dinner prepared by Sonoma Valley’s finest chefs, is one of the Season’s anchor events and is a food-lover’s paradise. Preceding Feast of the Olive, master bartenders and chefs will gather to compete for the best martini at the wildly popular Martini Madness, where patrons can sample each concoction and place their votes (January 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. at MacArthur Place). Then, from February 1417 the Season of the Olive will culminate with the Olive Season Finale Weekend, a magnificent celebration of events, dinners and tastings, including VinOlivo, an evening epicurean showcase that includes live entertainment and a Sonoma Valley Marketplace; and Olive Odyssey, a two-day affair held at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, where olive expert Don Landis and olive curers from all over California convene to offer samples, recipes, lessons and delicious olive-themed food and wine pairings. The Season of the Olive’s Finale Weekend is a guarantee to impress even the impossible-toplease foodie. More information about the weekend can be found here: www.olivefestival.com/sonoma-valley-olive-season-finalweekend.html. For a comprehensive calendar of Season of the Olive events, visit the official website at www.olivefestival.com.

The Sonoma Valley Olive Season
