INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Is it sulfites in wine that give me headaches?
Sulfites are the reason for mandatory label warnings on wine bottles because a small percentage of the US population, less than one percent, suffer an allergic reaction to sulfites, such as sneezing or coughing. About ten percent of these sufferers have a more serious reaction, such as shortness of breath. However, people who get headaches from wine should not automatically blame the sulfites. In the majority of cases the cause is probably something else, such as histamines in the wine. Some people take an antihistamine in advance of drinking wine in order to prevent getting a reaction from the histamines in the wine. Needless to say, the causes of allergic reactions of any kind are difficult to pin down without a doctor’s assistance and if you suffer any ailment as a result of drinking wine, you should consult with a doctor. If you have a wine allergy you can try narrowing down the cause by first sampling wines made from organically grown grapes, such as Bonterra made by Fetzer, or Sanford from Santa Barbara County, among many others. These wines are made from grapes that are grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, like pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. If no relief comes from drinking wine from organically grown grapes, the next step is to try a 100% organic wine, which contains a minimal amount of sulfites that occur naturally in production, and has no sulfites added. These wines are commonly found in natural food grocery stores. To be sure, every wine, organic or not, contains some sulfites because sulfites are produced naturally in the process of winemaking. If the total sulfite content is 10 parts per million or higher, however, the government requires a warning label. Winemakers add more sulfites because they help to preserve the quality of the wine for longterm shelf life. Therefore, wines that contain no added sulfites should be consumed while the wine is young.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Good to Know Before Heading to the Wineries
BY CHARLES NEAVE

For the most part, going wine tasting is about the easiest thing in the world, especially here in California where wineries and tasting rooms abound. You can find wineries specializing in red wines of all types, those that are famous for their white wines and others who pour sparkling wine. It is a matter of doing a little research and planning your day. Most tasting rooms open around 10 a.m. and close between 4:30 and 6 p.m. Here are some tips that have proven to be helpful and are designed to help make the sensory adventure of wine tasting all the more enjoyable. Before you start off pack a few essentials: Water (plenty of water) and something to snack on – crackers or a baguette. Many wineries have picnic areas and there are plenty of delis and bakeries that can make up a lunch for you, or make your own. Which brings us to eating and drinking, the kind that doesn’t directly involve wine. Be sure to nibble during the day and make sure you make time for lunch. Two tips: drink at least twice as much water as you do wine, and remember that you don’t have to drink everything poured into your glass. There is a reason tasting bars have dump buckets and a pitcher of water to wash out your glass. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Time and time again I have heard knowledgeable winery workers say that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and they mean that. You can drink what you want, in the order you want. If you only like

reds, say so; if you don’t like sweet wines, speak up. But the idea of starting with whites, then going on to reds and then sweet wines is a good guide. Zinfandel is red. I am sure you know that but it never hurts to remind everyone. If there is a particular wine you want to try and it is not on the list, ask. There might be a bottle around that was opened for a trade tasting or by the winemaker. Most tasting rooms are happy to pour a little if you show enthusiasm. Take notes on the wines you most enjoyed. Take advantage of tours when the winery offers them, but keep in mind that they take anywhere from 20 minutes to well over an hour, so one a day is plenty. Buy wines that you can only find at the winery. These often include smaller (375 ml) bottles of limited production Ports or dessert wines. Don’t buy a wine you can get at a supermarket back home. You’ll pay more, and besides, what’s the point? Look for tasting rooms in towns. Many of these are cooperative tasting rooms, where in one place you might find wines from a dozen or more small-to-medium premium producers. They are scattered throughout the area and more are opening all the time. Don’t give too much thought to ratings and vintages. It’s like art: if you like it, it’s a good wine. It is as simple as that. Remember that you don’t have to do the driving. It takes no more than a phone call hire a transportation company to do the driving.

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!

Executive Chef Chad Hendrickson

THE HESS COLLECTION
Chef Hendrickson Sets the Standard
BY MIKE HYLAND

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 4411 Redwood Rd, Napa, CA 94558 (707) 255-1144 | www.hesscollection.com

Trends often tend to come and go in Wine Country, and one of the hottest trends these days is food and wine pairings (or wine and cheese pairings) at numerous tasting rooms in both Sonoma and Napa counties. One tends to forget that the venerable Hess Collection on Mount Veeder in Napa has had an Executive Chef on staff since 2001 – some 12 years of enjoying wine, food and art all in one very gorgeous setting. Executive Chef Chad Hendrickson arrives each day on Mount Veeder to lead the Hess culinary program, pairing wines from the Hess Collection with recipes featuring fresh seasonal and sustainable foods, most of which are grown right at the winery. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Chef Chad began his career in Los Angeles, honing his skills at such elite Hollywood restaurants as Café La Boheme and Le Bel Age Hotel. After moving to Santa Barbara County and working at San Ysidro Ranch, he settled a little further north in the Napa Valley where he worked in the iconic Napa restaurant Brix and at the legendary Auberge du Soleil, before joining The Hess Collection in 2001. At Hess, Chef Chad follows the tenets of the Seafood Watch program, and has planted an extensive organic garden just a few steps away from the winery kitchen door. Fruit trees, olive trees and an herb garden are also available on property. The Hess Collection website regularly features Chef Chad’s recipes and pairing suggestions, and Hess Collector’s Club members enjoy the opportunity to experience his creations at regular wine club events. For the Wine Country visitor, however, there are numerous options at Hess Collection for a more comprehensive tasting experience. While most of the tours require advance reservations, it is certainly worth a phone call or email to enjoy any one of the tours available throughout the year. The most notable experience is the Tour of the Palate, available only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 2 p.m. at a cost of $85 per person. Guests will enjoy a guided

tour of The Hess Collection Contemporary Art Museum followed by a tasting of three current release wines expertly paired with three exquisite creations from Executive Chef Hendrickson. The Tour of the Palate menu, on a recent visit to the winery, included a pan seared fennel dusted day boat scallop, red watercress, frisee, grilled asparagus, Easter egg radishes, navel oranges with a wildflower honey citrus vinaigrette paired with the 2011 Napa Valley Chardonnay. Next was country pork pâté and duck rillettes, Fiscalini Farms San Joaquin Gold Wholegrain Mustard, and pickled onions paired with the 2009 Artezin Napa Valley Charbono. The tasting was completed with grilled Black Angus beef skirt steak with brown clamshell mushrooms, fava beans, Bloomsdale spinach, roasted fennel, spring onion and sweet pepper relish, paired beautifully with the 2009 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. Another highly recommended tour is the Wine & Chocolate Experience which is offered daily for $65 per person, and again, with advance reservations. Enjoy a tour of The Hess Collection, followed by a current release wine tasting of four wines paired with artisan truffles developed and handcrafted with TCHO Chocolate by the Hess Pastry Chef and Chocolatier, Emma Kate Veader. This is a unique and educational experience with one-of-a-kind chocolates that pair exceptionally well with the wines. If it is wine and cheese you are after, then by all means sign up for the Wine & Cheese Pairing that takes place daily for $65 per person. Guests will enjoy an educational wine production tour with your own private host from The Hess Collection, followed by a current release wine presentation paired with artisan cheeses served with seasonal fruits and nuts selected by Executive Chef Hendrickson. Or, when the weather’s nice, enjoy Wine & Cheese Tasting In The Garden Courtyard. Taste underneath vines of wisteria, surrounded by contemporary sculptures and beautifully landscaped gardens. Cost is $10 for the Mount Veeder wine sampler and $30 for a six ounce cheese plate with crackers, dried fruits and nuts, weather permitting. The Hess Collection Winery and Art Museum are open daily for public visits, tours and tastings. Groups up to eight people are invited to taste four current release wines, many of which are available only at the winery, for $10 per person. Larger groups are asked call (707) 255-8584 or email info@hesscollection.com to make a reservation.

BEAU WINE TOURS
Connecting Wine Enthusiasts with the Next Generation of Luxury Winemakers
BY ABIGAIL P. ZIMMERMAN

Beau Wine Tours has long been one of the most expansive tour companies here in Northern California Wine Country. Owners Tom and Georgia Buck crafted Beau Wine Tours to provide guests with an unforgettable experience. The Bucks are fine wine aficionados and collectors, often with their fingers on the pulse points of new trends in the wine industry. Now, high-end guests may benefit from their personal expertise with Beau Wine Tours’ newly created “Collector’s Tours.” “Collector’s Tours” are designed for only top tier visitors to Sonoma and Napa Valleys. “Collector’s Tours” are carefully crafted by Tom and Georgia Buck to provide custom excursions and insider access to up and coming luxury wine brands. Guests will savor exclusive and intimate wine tastings, private cave tours and VIP catered meals. No more than six guests per tour with prices starting at $1,800 for the first couple. Currently, “Collector’s Tours” guests may choose from two tours centered on two varietals:

Cabernet is King
With more than 400 wineries in Napa Valley, it can be hard for even the most seasoned wine aficionado to know where to begin. Owners Tom and Georgia Buck will tailor this tour to help Cabernet lovers masterfully navigate the vineyard-lined roads to the soon-tobe “cult” wine brands and personally create the itinerary to connect guests with the passionate people behind each wine.

Seductive Pinot Noir
Sonoma County is one of the finest Pinot Noir regions in the world. With a more temperate growing climate than neighboring Napa and big coastal fogs, Sonoma County boasts three globally exceptional appellations: Sonoma Coast, Russian River, and Green Valley. Tom and Georgia will make plans and appointments to lead Pinot lovers to the best, hidden winery gems familiar to only “in the know” wine lovers. “Collector’s Tours” last approximately eight hours (a full day). Candidly, guests are expected to purchase at least one case of wine at each winery. Visitors are chauffeured throughout the day in Beau Wine Tours’ most luxurious vehicles. Wine is not the entire focus of the “Collector’s Tours.” Wine country may be home to the finest New World wines but also to un-parallel culinary talents. Choose between a specially catered vineyard lunch on a private estate or a private dinner inside a Wine Cave. Perfect food and wine pairings may be prepared by top local restaurant and celebrity chefs as well as in-house chefs at these world-class wineries.

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.

CANDLELIGHT INN
A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You
A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like “love at first sight”! As you approach the beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion – built as a residence in 1929 – it appears to straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area.

Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves. Originally designed for an active family’s enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression, now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit, there is more to do.

Craneway Pavilion, Ford Point, Richmond, April 6, 2014
The Rhone Rangers are moving across San Francisco Bay to the spectacular and historic Craneway Pavilion at Ford Point, for the 17th Annual Bay Area Grand Tasting on Sunday, April 6, 2014. The day will celebrate the craftsmanship of 100+ American winemakers who will pour over four hundred Rhone-varietal wines. Guests will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the bay and city skyline from the recently renovated architectural gem built more than 80 years ago by Henry Ford as an assembly plant for automobiles. Small plates of iconic American fare will be available from Assemble Restaurant, under the direction of Richard Mazzera, an alumnus of Chez Panisse and the owner of Cesar in Berkeley. Over 2,000 wine lovers and members of the trade and media are expected to attend the Rhone Rangers tasting. Tickets are now on sale at: www.rhonerangers.org. “The move to the Craneway Pavilion provides us with a worldclass venue, breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay, and greater accessibility with improved parking, highway access and public transit options for our attendees,” explained David Gates, President of the Rhone Rangers Board of Directors.

CLINE CELLARS
A Great Place to Start Your Getaway
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Visit the California Missions Museum while you’re at Cline – open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 24737 Arnold Drive, Sonoma CA 95476 (707) 940-4061 | www.clinecellars.com

Cline Cellars is one of the first wineries to greet you on your way into Sonoma or Napa wine country. Their ideal location, distinct Rhône-style wines and Zinfandels and guest friendly amenities is a great way to start any getaway! The tasting room is located in an 1850s farmhouse with a wraparound porch and is surrounded by lush willow trees, expansive lawns and spring-fed koi ponds. Wine tastings do not require bookings and their staff is knowledgeable about the history, wines and everything wine country. After your tasting, take a guided tour of the property or a leisurely stroll through the grounds to discover the rich history of Sonoma. This registered historic property was once the site of a Miwok Village and the San Francisco Solano Mission was originally established at Cline until it was relocated to the town of Sonoma in 1823. A cross and reconstructed adobe mission mark the spot Father Altimira is said to have dedicated the mission. This adobe mission and flagstone courtyard now host many lovely wine country weddings. In 1939, the California Mission Models made their debut at the World’s Fair at Treasure Island. All were designed to scale, are faithful representations of the original missions, and are finely detailed down to the shrubbery and the figures utilized. As a collection, the models are acclaimed as an extraordinary and accurate depiction of California history. In 1998, the Cline Family saved the models from being auctioned off individually, and in 2005 created the museum as a fitting showcase for these historical treasures. In addition to the models, the museum also features a life-size figure of Father Junipero Serra, mission paintings by artists Robert Morris and Henry Nelson, and two stained-glass panels originally housed in Mission Dolores prior to the 1906 earthquake. Fred Cline founded Cline Cellars near Oakley, California in 1982 with an inheritance from his grandfather. Here, he preserved and restored many ancient vine sites to their rightful reign as premier California vine lands. The Oakley Ranch is home to the Cline’s Ancient Vines Series – some of the oldest and rarest in

California. One hundred and forty acres of Zinfandel, Carignane and Mourvedre are harvested each year. The Oakley 82 Series Red and White wines commemorate the beginning of Cline Cellars and offer guests reasonably priced wines for everyday enjoyment. Wine Enthusiast noted the Oakley 82 Red as a “best buy.” Fred and his wife Nancy relocated the winery in 1991 from Oakley to the Carneros region of Sonoma County on a 350-acre estate with new vineyards and facilities. The Carneros Estate is planted with Syrah, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. While much of the cool Carneros region is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot, Fred pioneered the planting of Rhône varietals including Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. He is one of the founding members of the Rhône Rangers and his innovation has consistently resulted in many 90+ point ratings from Wine Spectator. These wines are delicious with meals or are perfect for sipping amongst friends. With beautifully manicured gardens and lawns and thousands of rose bushes to admire, the Cline property offers guests a much more laid back wine tasting experience. Picnics are welcome on the Great Lawn and if you reserve a space, you will receive a Cline picnic blanket, a bottle of Oakley 82 Red or White wine and a 15% discount on any wine purchases for the day for your group. They also host some of the best events here and can help you plan your big day or corporate event with their many venues available. Indulge in a relaxing afternoon here while tasting some spectacular wines and enjoy the surrounding views.

Golden Haven Hot Springs Spa & Resort
Luxury You CAN Afford!
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH

For over 100 years, health-conscious visitors have flocked to the charming Napa Valley town of Calistoga to soak in the mineral-rich hot springs that burble to the surface there. These days, along with the hot springs, the lure of world-class wineries, restaurants and lodgings is bringing more visitors than ever to Calistoga (and to the rest of Napa Valley as well). Many of Napa Valley’s spas and lodgings are known for being rather pricey, but Golden Haven Hot Springs Spa & Resort in Calistoga is an oasis of sensual delight, offering a vast array of affordable spa treatments, and lodging too. Room/spa packages start as low as $98! This “home base for relaxation,” as Golden Haven’s Manager Barry Stern calls it, is located on a quiet, tree-lined street, just off Calistoga’s main drag. When you pull into the parking lot, you may just sigh with pleasure, because this place simply radiates healing energy and relaxation. A fountain splashes merrily in the courtyard, and the buildings that house the spa and 28 rooms for overnight lodging are attractive, without being ostentatious. Golden Haven is a “Green Spa,” meaning all of the hot water used on the property comes from the ancient, mineral-rich aquifer that runs beneath the entire area. The same water is also used to irrigate the attractively landscaped grounds. There is a large picnic area in the back, complete with a fire pit and regulation all-season bocce court. Bicycles are available

Napa Valley’s Castle of Love Celebrates an Evening of Romance at The Royal Hearts Gala
It seems love is always in the air in the beautiful Napa Valley, and this Valentine’s Day Castello di Amorosa will truly be a “Castle of Love” as it hosts its “Royal Hearts Gala” for its wine club members and their guests. On Friday, February 14th, the Castello will welcome lovers to an elegant evening of wine, romance and a lavish fourcourse dinner in the Grand Barrel Room from 7 to 11 p.m. Cost is $195 for wine club members and $225 for guests and includes food, wine and entertainment. “Dario Sattui spent 15 years constructing his ‘Castle of Love,’” says Castello President Georg Salzner, “and it’s wonderful for us to be able to share his labor of love with couples on such a romantic occasion as Valentine’s Day.” The evening begins with an exclusive wine reception in the Castello’s vaulted tasting room, where couples can mingle while sampling a selection of hand-crafted wines and hors d’oeuvres. Guests are then led through candle-lit cellars to the Grand Barrel Room, a stunning 12,000 square foot room three levels below the Castello. There, surrounded by French oak barrels filled with the winery’s newest vintages, guests will be seated for an elegant, fourcourse dinner. Each dish will be paired with one of the Castello’s wines, which have been artfully crafted in the Italian style to pair with food. Live music from Opera Amore will elevate the romance of the evening with their performances of classical Italian opera, as well as classic and current love songs. Guests are encouraged to dress in elegant attire for this romantic evening. Complimentary shuttles will be provided to and from downtown Calistoga. Tickets can be purchased online at www.castellodiamorosa.com/Events/Wine-Club-Events or by phone at (707) 967-6274.

CONCIERGE FAVORITES | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

CONCIERGE Q & A: What are your personal favorites?

RYAN ALTON
CHIEF CONCIERGE, CERTIFIED TOURISM AMBASSADOR HYATT VINEYARD CREEK HOTEL AND SPA, SANTA ROSA

Juliette Christensen
CONCIERGE, ANDAZ NAPA

Andreas Rippel
CHEF CONCIERGE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL SAN FRANCISCO Member of Les Clefs D’Or USA

JC: I’m not the type to say, “You have to go here … WCTW: What’s your favorite overall varietal and
where do you like to go to taste it? RA: I love a bold Pinot with lingering notes on the finish. J Vineyards Misterra Pinot recently made my mouth water and Kokomo Winery in Dry Creek has some of the best I’ve had, so rich and delicious! WCTW: What winery do you think has the best “over-the-top” experience to offer visitors? RA: Kunde’s Mountain Top Tasting at 1400 feet above the Sonoma Valley is pretty amazing! WCTW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? RA: Benzinger Family Winery has a great Biodynamic Tram tour of the vineyards, wine education and cave experience seated tasting. A must for anyone interested in how our local wines are produced. WCTW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? RA: Deerfield Ranch – amazing organic wines and beautiful caves. Ehler’s Estate also has amazing estate-grown, organic wines. So good! WCTW: Who is your favorite new winery or hot spot wine bar/tasting room? RA: I really enjoy the D’Argenzio Tasting Room. It has a friendly family atmosphere with Charlie the dog there to welcome you and bocce on the back patio. Always a good time on Thursday nights and they have fantastic wine. WCTW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets. RA: Many wineries out on Dry Creek Road are pet friendly; one of my favorites is Dutcher Crossing, beautiful wines and passionate winemakers. Their property is lovely too! it’s my favorite!” Everyone is different, and with more than 400 wineries in Napa alone, there are enough wineries to please every palette. Personally, I have some that are varietal-specific, others because of great wine and gorgeous grounds (Newton), spectacular caves (Hall Rutherford), or fabulous food and wine pairings (Ram’s Gate) or all of the above (Quintessa). For a great introductory tour, I still think Mondavi’s “Signature Tour & Tasting” is one of the best in the valley! For those thirsty to learn more about wine, there are wineries that conduct blending seminars, allow barrel tasting and, during harvest, even allow guests to actively participate in “punch-down.” For wine blending, Conn Creek is fabulous and Joseph Phelps is very educational. For barrel tasting, I frequently recommend Alpha Omega, Fontanella, Flora Springs Winery and Del Dotto. For those who claim to have “done Napa,” sometimes it’s often a matter of looking beyond Hwy 29 or the Silverado Trail. I love some of the smaller wineries in Coombsville, but am also a big fan of mountain Cabs, and have sent many guests up-valley to Spring Mountain and Howell Mountain. You’d be surprised how many wineries are still not really “on the map” but have much to offer to the most discerning critics. In Coombsville, I love Tournesol, Palmaz and Caldwell. On Howell Mountain, I love O’Shaugnessy, Viader and Cade. On Spring Mountain, I love Barnett, Vineyard 7 & 8 and Spring Mountain Winery. One of the most gratifying aspects of my job is when guests come back to tell me how amazing their day was!

WCTW: If you were to visit just one winery, which would you choose and why? AR: Quintessa. Perfect experience with a private tour and tasting with your own guide, beautiful grounds, architecture and, of course, amazing wine. WCTW: Describe what you would call the perfect day in wine country. AR: Grabbing a quick delightful pastry and coffee at Bouchon Bakery in Yountville for breakfast, then going to one of the many wineries for a tour and tasting, preferably one of the wineries who offer tours and tasting by appointments only (Quintessa, Shafer, Far Niente, Cakebread or Nickel & Nickel). For lunch I would organize a tour and tasting with a winery who offers lunch possibilities (Tamber Bay or Gamble). In the afternoon one more tasting only – Duckhorn or Schramsberg for some Champagne tasting. When wineries are closing I would go for a mud bath treatment in Calistoga and then be ready for a nice dinner in of the many amazing restaurants in the Napa Valley area (Mustards, Redd, Bouchon, The Restaurant at the Auberge du Soleil, Solbar, Farmstead, Bottega or for a very special evening and a lot of good luck to secure a reservation at the French Laundry or The Restaurant at Meadowood Resort). WCTW: What areas and/or wineries would you recommend that are not part of the popular wine country? AR: Anderson Valley with Goldeneye (for a perfect setting and really good Pinot Noirs) and Navarro Winery, Scharffenberger and Roederer Estate for some bubbly.

30

Remember: Please sip responsibly! Plan to taste at no more than three wineries based on these recommendations.

Featuring More Than 100 of Napa Valley’s Top Wineries
Napa Valley’s legendary Cabernets finally have a festival of their own! The Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater presents the first Napa Valley Cabernet Festival, “CabFestNV,” March 1 and 2, a weekend that will be filled with fine wine, fabulous food, fantastic parties and world-class entertainment. Event tickets will be priced at $125 for a single-day Grand Tasting pass, $225 for a two-day Grand Tasting pass, and $500 for the AllAccess Full-Weekend pass. Only 100 All-Access passes will be sold, and include two days of Grand Tastings, all VIP tastings, plus preferred concert seating and access to exclusive VIP events and tastings.

CabFestNV will feature more than 100 of Napa Valley’s exceptional vintners, representing both the enduring tastemakers and the hottest boutiques, and is designed to appeal to both the novice and the expert. Through current and library tastings, thoughtfully combined wine, food and chocolate pairings, educational lectures and incomparable culinary demonstrations (accessing the world-class chefs of the region), CabFestNV will explore the many facets of Cabernet Sauvignon’s complexity and mystique. There is much more to CabFestNV, however, than simply enhancing the appreciation and appeal of Cabernet Sauvignon. CabFestNV has been created to grow into an annual celebration proving that seriously good wine should not be taken too seriously … and so the weekend will be laced with music from rock to classical, plus exclusive events and extraordinary festivities. “The two-day Grand Tasting pass is going to be the must have gift for wine lovers this holiday season,” said Michael Madden, Executive Director, Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater. “It is going to be a weekend to remember with Napa Valley’s finest wine and entertainment. We are not only excited about the many aspects of the event, but also about the many community collaborators working with us to ensure a spectacular outcome, including the Napa Valley Vintners Association, Visit Napa Valley, Napa Valley Museum, Sean Dempsey & Associates, Terry Hall (TH-ink Public Relations), Adams Walter Communications and Comcast.” Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater is Napa Valley’s premier performing arts venue as well as a leading provider of arts education and outreach.

TASTING ROOM OF THE WEEK:

ACACIA VINEYARD & OROGENY VINEYARDS
BY MONICA L. DASHWOOD

For all of you Pinot Noir and Chardonnay aficionados, Acacia Vineyard, located in the Carneros Region of Napa Valley, is the winery for you. Acacia offers stunning views all year round and sits atop of a hill, surrounded by 150 acres, overlooking San Pablo Bay with views of Mount Tamalpais. As you make your way to Acacia Vineyard, you will spot one lone Acacia tree in the midst of the vineyards, welcoming wine lovers, near and far to taste distinct Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from Acacia and Orogeny Vineyards. Acacia has been producing single-vineyard wines since 1979. Winemaker Matthew Glynn uses the winery’s estate grapes as well as fruit from such well-known Carneros and Russian River vineyards including Sangiacomo. Acacia is also known for being one of the first California wineries to offer vineyard-designate Pinot Noir. Acacia focuses on small lot productions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, up to 300 cases per varietal and these wines are available to wine club members or the general public when visiting their tasting room. Acacia’s tasting room is warm and inviting, and the staff is equally knowledgeable when speaking about their wines. You can enjoy a fine menu of wines in their barrel room or sip wines sitting in their patio area and play a little bocce while you’re there. During your visit, don’t miss the newly released 2012 Orogeny Pinot Noir and 2012 Orogeny Chardonnay, two distinctive wines produced from the Russian River Valley appellation. The 2012 Pinot Noir is known for its provocative and alluring taste, featuring sweet spicy fruit from start to finish. Their 2012 Chardonnay reveals classic citrus on the nose and ends with lush tropical fruit, pineapple and ginger spice overtones. What these two wines have in common, besides being delicious and receiving accolades over the years, is they share many of the same conditions, perfect for producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Cool nights and foggy mornings allow the grapes to develop with a perfect balance of acidity and lush fruit flavors. In addition to the Chardonnay and Pinot, Acacia produces a delicious Viognier and a refreshing rosé of Pinot Noir, perfect for anytime of the year, even winter. No matter the time of year, Acacia Vineyard with its intimate tasting room is one you don’t want to miss!

Ca’ Momi Napa Valley Purchases Historic Carneros Vineyards
Ca’ Momi Napa Valley has purchased two premium vineyards in Los Carneros Appellation of Napa Valley. Ca’Momi recently closed on the purchase of a 10.5-acre Pinot Noir vineyard from Napa winemaking legend Kent Rasmussen. According to Rasmussen, the majority of the vines now on the property were planted in 1973. They are therefore among the oldest Valley’s wine grapes – which they believe to be the world’s finest. 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 website at www.camomi.com.

Taste Route 116 Hosts Third Annual ‘Sweet 116’ Event Celebrating Valentine’s Day
Taste Route 116 will host “Sweet 116” for a third year from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 15. Last year’s event was a complete sell out and guests were thrilled with the one-of-a-kind, take-home souvenir that came with each ticket. Guests will get to choose their logo glasses hand painted by local artists. Each one is unique and a very valuable keepsake. Many of the artists will be at the wineries representing their art. The Sweet 116 event invites guests to enjoy decadent treats and delicious wines at eleven wineries along Highway 116 near Sebastopol. Tickets are $35 Per Person, $30 for Wine Club Members and $10 for Designated Drivers (DDs get a logo mug) and can be purchased at participating wineries: Atascadero Creek, Balletto Vineyards & Winery, Dutton Estate Winery, Graton Ridge Cellars, Hanna, Hook & Ladder (Sebastopol location), Martin Ray Winery, Occidental Road Cellars, Russian River Vineyards, Taft Street Winery and Wine Guerrilla. For tickets or more information, visit the website at tasteroute116.com. Known as West County, the Highway 116 route that ambles through Sebastopol, Graton and Forestville is home to a unique cluster of twn family-owned wineries that make-up the Taste Route 116 trail. These vintners bottle some of Sonoma County’s most prized, often small-production varietals, from crisp Chardonnay to earthy Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and more. The drive along Highway 116 drifts through Gravenstein apple orchards, redwoods and gently rolling hills of perfectly trellised vineyards – with small towns, great food and interesting discoveries along the way.

Eighth Street Wineries Sonoma Annual Open House
Nine Wineries in one location
Eighth Street Wineries Sonoma announces their highly anticipated 2014 Annual Open House happening Saturday, February 22, from noon to 4 p.m. Off the beaten path yet just five minutes from Sonoma Plaza, nine wineries open their cellar doors for this special event. Enjoy this unique chance to visit all nine wineries in one stop, park once and spend the afternoon. Stroll through the stretch of warehouses, glass in hand and savor various pairings by local chefs. It’s likely you’ll meet the winemakers themselves in this intimate setting, a rare opportunity, as many of these “special gem” wineries are typically closed to the public. Enjoy small-batch wines and hard to find wines: a special occasion for any wine lover! Advance tickets may be purchased online at eighthstreetwineries.com. Tickets will also be available at the door of each participating winery on the day of the event. Tickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door, which includes a wine tasting glass and access to all participating wineries event tastings and activities. A Designated Driver ticket is also available for $10. Tickets, detailed event information and a map may be obtained at the door of participating wineries. “We look forward to this event every year. It gives us, along with those not normally open to the public, the opportunity to open up our cellar doors and connect with people on a personal level. All while sharing some of Sonoma’s highly sought after wines and savoring pairings by local chefs.” says Michael Lancaster, winemaker/ co-owner of Tin Barn Vineyards. The nine participating wineries are Anaba Wines, Enkidu Wines, MacRostie Winery and Vineyards, Parmelee-Hill Vineyards, Stone Edge Farm, Talisman Wines, Three Sticks Wines, Tin Barn Vineyards and Ty Caton Vineyards Eighth Street Sonoma Wineries Association excels in uniting the community in the enjoyment of locally produced artisan wines.

Annual Alsace Varietals Festival to Showcase International Whites, Gourmet Foods, a Live Cooking Demo and More
Focus Varietals Include the Nation’s Fastest Growing and Most Popular
For the ninth consecutive year, the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association will host the International Alsace Varietals Festival – an event that has become a popular showcase for Alsace-style whites, poured by producers from around the globe. The 2014 festival, to be held on February 8-9, comes amidst a national surge in demand for wines made from the highlighted varietals. Last year, sales of Muscat/Moscato rose by 33% by volume in U.S. retail stores – the largest gain by percentage – and Pinot Grigio/Gris rose by 8%, making it the fourth most popular wine by varietal (according to The Wine Institute). This year’s festival won’t be all about the sweet or the fizzy, however. At Saturday’s grand tasting, producers from Anderson Valley to Alsace will be showcasing some of the world’s best whites, in styles that range from bone dry to off-dry, with a few late-harvest selections. Varietals being poured will include Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat. Delectable bites like fresh oysters, pork belly, artisan cheeses and a traditional tarte flambée will be on offer throughout the tasting. Saturday morning’s educational session has been tailored to appeal to the wine geek in all of us. Topics will range from a discussion of the Riesling sweetness scale, complete with a competitive tasting, to a vineyard-focused tasting of Gewürztraminers and a gourmet food and wine pairing demonstration by Lars Kronmark, chef-instructor at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Francois de Melogue, chef at FIGUE restaurant in Palm Desert, will present a live cooking demonstration for festival attendees. Participants will learn tips and tricks from a trained chef, and have a chance to sample the dish he creates at the Alsace Festival Grand Tasting, just after the demonstration. Participating wineries at the festival will include: Anne Amie Vineyards, Barra of Mendocino, Breggo Cellars, Claiborne & Churchill, Cutruzzola Vineyards, Foris Vineyards Winery, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards, Handley Cellars, Husch Vineyards, Lazy Creek Vineyards, Lula Cellars, Navarro Vineyards, New Zealand Winegrowers, Phillips Hill Estates, Philo Ridge Vineyards, Robert Sinskey Vineyards, Domaines Schlumberger, Tatomer Wines, Thomas Fogarty Winery, Toulouse Vineyards, Trefethen Family Vineyards and Valckenberg Estates & Wine Merchants, with more to come. Rocco Hanson, chef/owner of Oui Cook, will craft Saturday evening’s winemaker dinner. Held at Scharffenberger Cellars in Philo, the dinner will showcase Alsace-style wines (including Pinot Noir) from participating wineries, alongside a multi-course, sit-down meal. Attendees will dine with the winemakers and savor amazing wines, perfectly paired with each course. On Sunday, local wineries will host open houses that include live music, vineyard tours, food and wine pairings, and more. All are welcome, and most open houses are complimentary. A detailed schedule for the weekend can be found at the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association website at www.avwines.com, or by contacting the association via e-mail at info@avwines.com, or by phone at (707) 895-WINE. Tickets can now be purchased at the AVWA website. The Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association operates with the goal of supporting the region’s grape growers and wineries, as well as promoting the region’s wines. In addition to acting as a resource for its members, the association aims to better its community by donating funds every year to local nonprofit organizations. To-date, more than $300,000 – raised at the association’s events – has been given to local charities. For more information about the association, its board of directors, or for a list of association members, visit www.avwines.com.

Twisted Roots Celebrates Its First Year Anniversary at its Carmel Valley Tasting Room
Family-run vineyard employs practices that help ensure healthy lands, healthy vines and, ultimately, delicious wine with its comprehensive approach to sustainable winegrowing and winemaking
Twisted Roots celebrates its first year anniversary at its Carmel Valley Tasting Room at Lyons Head Gallery, 12 Delfino Place in the heart of the valley. Open Friday through Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m., the tasting room pours wines created from estate grapes on vines first planted in Lodi in 1918. Tastings are $5 and include four wines: · 2012 Chardonnay, which is a very light, “Chablis” style wine. · 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon that won a gold medal in the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle wine competition · 2010 Petite Sirah, the family’s flagship wine. · 1918 Old Vine Zinfandel our most popular, and the vines that started the whole thing back in “1918” donates money to MEarth and its Hilton Bialek Habitat at Carmel Middle School. As Josh said, “Twisted Roots wants to make good quality wine and give back to their communities.’

Where to Purchase and Taste Wines
Both Café Rustica, Mission Ranch and Tarpy’s Roadhouse serve Twisted Roots wines. And, of course, you can have a full tasting right in Carmel Valley at 12 Del Fino Place, (831) 594-8282 or in Lodi by 6-6-12 appointment (916) 300-2416. For more information, email WCTW S2S Ad-July info@twistedrootsvineyard.com or call (831) 594-8282 vert. 3.75”w x 6.25” h

Certified Green Growers
At Twisted Roots, “we believe in letting the grapes speak for themselves.” Partner Josh Ruiz, representing partners Ross Schmiedt and Mike Hodge, stated that, “We feel that our work in the vineyard is the genesis for the flavor and overall complexity of our wines. As Lodi Certified Green Growers we follow sustainable farming practices throughout the entire winemaking process.” The certification of Twisted Roots as a green grower includes two components: The Lodi Rules practice standards, and a Pesticide Environmental Assessment System that measures the impact of all organic and synthetic pesticides used during the year. The vineyard is audited annually by a third party to verify farming practices, and may not exceed a maximum number of points calculated using the system. The Twisted Roots family creates a sustainable vision for the farm that provides the foundation for sustainable winegrowing. This philosophy helps ensure the long-term health, biodiversity and productivity of the farm and the surrounding ecosystem. All of the Twisted Roots’ farming practices can be evaluated to determine whether they move the vineyard toward or away from this vision. In the end, sustainability keeps the Twisted Roots’ family close to its land, and helps ensure that future generations will get to enjoy that land and all of its bounty.

Twisted Roots Philanthropy
For every bottle sold, Twisted Roots donates a portion of the proceeds to the ALS Foundation for research into ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). One of the partners and creator of the Twisted Roots brand is afflicted with ALS. Additionally, Twisted Roots
