INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

Why are some wines filtered?
Arguably, many steps of the winemaking process are clarification steps. For instance, the flow of free-run wine from the solids of fermentation is a clarification step. The separation of Chardonnay from the lees, called racking, also results in a clearer wine. Racking, the transfer of any wine from one oak barrel or stainless steel tank into another, separates the clearer wine from sediment left behind – just like transferring an old wine with sediment from bottle to decanter. However, the elaborate automated process of filtration clarifies thousands of gallons of wine at a time – and there are risks. The decision to filter depends upon whether a winemaker believes the process will significantly improve wine clarity, character and longterm integrity. One school of thought believes aggressive filtering removes beneficial, natural compounds in a wine responsible for its unique flavor, style, strength and aging potential. So, while not filtering wine opens the possibility that an off-taste might develop in the bottle, filtering too much out of the wine could leave it flat and uninteresting. Most often, even expensive luxury brand wines pass once through a coarse filter, removing only the largest particles, leaving the smallest ones to allow the wine to keep its personality. While a wine doesn’t normally state that it was filtered, those not filtered often proudly announce “Unfiltered” right on the front label. Although it is not an indication of quality in either case, you may want to make a mental note of any red wines you especially enjoy and see if they are unfiltered. It’s a winemaking step to be aware of, though not one that should influence your purchasing decision. Also know: • Fining: Stabilizes wine by addressing microscopic particles that filtering cannot address, but, if left in the wine might create aroma or flavor faults over time. • Cold Stabilization: Chills wine to precipitate two chemical compounds – tartrate and bitartrate. These compounds later might settle at the bottom of the bottle or cling to the cork. Without cold stabilization, bottled wine exposed to extreme cold storage conditions could precipitate the tartrates.

BY JOSH STEIN

Cover Crops: Insight into Site-Specific Decisions in a Drought Year
In a normal weather year, we’d be having a different kind of conversation than we will this year, especially as regards cover crops. Answering “why” requires that we take a slight detour and first discuss the uses of cover crops in order to understand how incipient drought flips a lot of agricultural best practices onto their heads in order to balance soil health with viability. Agriculture of any kind is, by nature, an informed gamble with Nature, but because vines aren’t replanted yearly like other row crops, there is an additional “high stakesness” about water usage, which cover cropping impacts immensely since what the crops take, the vines don’t get. Here’s some context: before a vineyard is planted, it is considerably easier to add amendments than after, but even then, there’s only so much which can be done. It’s also a given that the vines, like any crop, will pull nutrients, minerals and water from the soil, so the need to replenish the soil is there regardless. Farming is farming, meaning there is always the option of allowing fields to lie fallow in between taking vines out and planting, but with an average of twenty-five to thirty years between plantings and having to wait three years after planting before commercial-level crop loads are possible without severely weakening the vines, that doesn’t solve the immediate year-toyear needs of soil health and irrigation. Which is where cover crops come into the picture. Why do some vineyards have nothing between the rows while others have every other or even every row filled with spiky and flowery green, yellow, red, and even brown plants? Believe it or not, you can tell a lot – not just about the weather but about the vineyard management philosophy – just by looking between the rows of vines rather than at them as is usually the case. Cover crops affect the soil health the vines are growing within and the irrigation levels of that soil. They have a huge impact on erosion control, which is vital in wet winter months on vine-dormant hillsides. Equally, in the drier springs, cover crops help with dust control, which also means pest control and encouragement of beneficial bugs. And, depending on the kind of crops chosen and the microclimate’s proclivity to frost, cover crops can help to protect vines from inclimate weather damage. Especially in a year like this, with what rain we do get recharging local conditions differently, you will see a variety of stripping patterns in the vineyards of wine country, which reveals a lot about the year’s weather to date to the discerning eye. Is it early but the cover crops are already gone except for the wild mustard? A dry winter with no rain in sight, so nothing is allowed to compete with vine irrigation. Already late spring and the vineyards still look abundant with all sorts of grasses, clovers and mustards? A very wet year with the cover crops still above ground to help pull water out of the soil. Some rows mown or tilled in early spring? Someone’s making adjustments to soil water levels in different areas of the vineyard, responding in a very immediate way to what the weather gives and takes away. It’s a lot to think about, no? Now that we have had some rain, to the point where we are closer to 40% of annual rainfall averages than the 15% we had been staring at quite nervously, these are the kinds of decisions vineyard managers will have to make based on what their particlar local conditions show them. That’s the facet of the vital-but-untranslatable term “terroir” when using it to describe environmental conditions, as opposed to human actions, which is its conjoined meaning. Thinking about weather and irrigation months from now is vital to growing great wines. Sometimes, we have to deal with excess rain. Other times, it’s incipient frost. This year came up drought. Something to consider as you sip a glass, no? Enjoy!

SEBASTIANI VINEYARDS & WINERY
BY DAWN MARIE CARLSON

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 389 4th Street East, Sonoma CA 95476 (707) 933-3230 | www.sebastiani.com

Since its founding in 1904, Sebastiani has been one of Sonoma County’s most important wine producers. Located a few blocks from downtown Sonoma, Sebastiani is a popular destination thanks to its historic winery building, hospitality center, barrel room with antique redwood tanks, grand event space and daily tours and tastings. Today, under the ownership of Bill Foley, the winery is making the finest wines in its long history. In addition to its value-oriented Sonoma County tier, Sebastiani has earned high scores and widespread praise for its limited bottling of individual sites (Cherryblock, Patrick’s Vineyard and Robert’s Vineyard) and sub-appellations (Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Carneros, Dry Creek and Russian River Valley). The Sebastiani Hospitality Center draws visitors from all over the world. The knowledgeable tasting room staff is always available to pour their local Sonoma County wines, as well as share special appellation series wines and answer any questions. Sebastiani is featuring the newly released 2013 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc. Taste your way to becoming your own wine connoisseur as you learn the individual complexities and nuances of each special Sebastiani wine. In 2001, they remodeled the winery and production facility to focus on artisan winemaking and highlight the history. The new Hospitality Center displays an eighty-foot long Italian marble tasting bar, vaulted ceilings with gorgeous arches, a grand fireplace and luxurious new table sets where guests can sit and enjoy their wines. After tasting, purchase a bottle or enjoy a glass of your favorite wine paired with gourmet food items. Sit inside the tasting room or outside in the beautiful picnic garden near the fountain piazza. Arbor Park is a lush garden park on the property with picnic tables facing the historic Cherryblock Vineyard planted with ancient Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. This is the perfect space for a memorable wedding or family event. Afterward, take a stroll through the vineyard where you can still see the original Sebastiani family home across the street near the vineyards. Mark Lyons is the award-winning Winemaker at Sebastiani. Mark has been with the winery since 1979 and accredited with the creation of Sebastiani’s Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon. “Since its creation, Cherryblock has been our flagship wine at Sebastiani,” he said. “The majority of the fruit (75%) came from our original Old Vines block of Cabernet Sauvignon planted in 1961. The wine also features a portion of fruit from younger vines on our estate. Small amounts

Robert Parker Rated 95 Points for the Sebastiani 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cherryblock.
“The most expensive wine I tasted from Sebastiani is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Cherry Block (14.2% alcohol). More restrained, noble and classy in the nose, it reveals notes of delicate black fruits (particularly cherries), oak, lead pencil shavings and flowers. The wine hits the palate with an extravagant display of rich fruit, sweet tannin, a full-bodied opulence and undeniable quality as well as personality. Its finish is amazing. This is another brilliant, singularly styled Cabernet Sauvignon that should evolve and drink well for two decades or more.” – Robert Parker, December 2013. The original proprietor, Samuele Sebastiani and his family are responsible for many of the winemaking techniques practiced today. In 2008, Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines purchased the winery from the Sebastiani family. He continues to maintain the rich tradition established over one hundred years ago. After the acquisition, Bill acquired new winemaking equipment; implemented sustainable farming practices; sought out new and exciting vineyards sites; and started focusing on special, single-vineyard and appellation series wines. Bill began Foley Family Wines in 1996 and the company has since grown to include over a dozen world-class properties from around the globe. Don’t miss these upcoming special events at Sebastiani. The Friday Night Music Series begins May 23rd and runs until September 26th. Beginning August 1, they will have the first annual Sebastiani Pizza My Way Recipe Contest for a chance to wine $10,000! You can go online and enter your homemade pizza recipe and they will announce the winner in March of 2015. They will announce the finalists weekly online beginning in December 2014. Visit the Sebastiani Hospitality Center today and have an entertaining wine tour and tasting!

BERINGER VINEYARDS
The Best of the Best!
BY JOSH STEIN

E S TD

18 76

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 2000 Main St, St Helena, CA 94574 1-866-708-9463 | www.beringer.com

Beringer Vineyards has been making and selling wine continuously longer than anyone else in the Valley – since 1876, in fact – and no winery or vineyard more thoroughly embodies the timeless appeal and seductive flavors of wine country than Beringer, which crafts Napa Valley wines speaking eloquently of the rich heritage of Beringer Vineyards while offering cutting-edge quality and contemporary elegance, displaying a single-minded dedication and pursuit of excellence instilled by founder Jacob Beringer. The design of the grove of trees and their landscaping which greet you as you pull into the drive silence the road noise of Highway 29, taking you back in time to the nineteenth century. Founded by German brothers Jacob and Frederick, the gravity-flow and then-steam-powered winery is supported by thousands of feet of hand-dug caves in the hillside, which still provide a stable 58 degrees yearround. Decades ago, the entire estate was declared a Historic District on the National Register of Historical Places. The winery offers two different, highly popular tours, so reservations by phone or online are highly recommended – even same-day reservations are available if you call ahead. Offered seven times daily, the thirty-minute Introduction to Beringer Tour guides visitors through the Old Stone Winery and wine-aging tunnels, highlighting Beringer’s long history and commitment to quality, tasting two wines during the tour. The thrice-daily, hour-long Taste of Beringer Tour explores the Old Stone Winery and wine-aging tunnels and visits the demonstration vineyard before proceeding to the Rhine House Mansion for a sitdown tasting of three wines paired with small food bites. Equal to the atmosphere and tours are the wines; the various tasting options and the cornicopia of bottlings make Beringer Vineyards the amazing experience it is. The sheer number of wines made is staggering, and there are literally too many to count. Among the highlights are the annually released Private Reserve

Cabernet and Chardonnay wines, which were first made in 1977; and the Modern Heritage bottlings of Chenin Blanc, Riesling and Rosé, among others. The Knights Valley wines show off the impact of volcanic soils on several Cabernets, a Meritage red blend, Sauvignon Blanc, and a white blend while the Napa Valley releases highlight at least a dozen different vineyard-designated Cabs, as well as Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Not to mention special bottlings like the Nightingale dessert wine, the Luminus Chardonnay from Oak Knoll District, the Quantum Red Blend and four different sparkling wines! Your options for enjoying the wines are equally as allencompassing. The Old Winery Tasting Room offers the opportunity to sample the more popular releases while the 1883 Rhine House Mansion provides tastings of the reserve and limited-release bottlings, including the new Private Reserve Cabernet. For those looking for something special, the Private Tasting, by appointment only, will take you deep into the library, and the Private Club Tasting, personally led by the Wine Club Concierge, goes even further. Large groups of ten or more can be accommodated, too, with special individualized tastings arranged in advance. Last but not least is the Beringer Chocolate Tasting which pairs Scharffen Berger chocolates with a range of wines and also includes a wine-and-chocolate tasting guide. The tasting room is now moving into the Spring spirit when it’s a perfect time to visit and discover some new wines with old favorites. Weekends bring Music on the Promenade, with, weather permitting, a live band playing outside of the Old Winery, wines available by the glass and sandwiches available for purchase. Coming up soon will be May 24th and 25th’s Memorial Day Weekend Passport Tasting; this walk-around tasting offers highlights from the wine portfolio matched with an inspired summer pairing by Beringer’s Chef Maurine Sarjeant at each of four tasting stations. Live music and bocce are also set to be part of the fun. As should be clear from the above, it’s the combination of lots of wines, lots of ways to enjoy them, and thoughtfully considering ahead of time how they can fit into customers’ lives which really makes Beringer stand out above the crowd and which shows why they’ve been leading the way for as long as folks have been coming to Napa for the best wines in the country. Check out for yourself what others have known since the nineteenth century – Beringer Vineyards is the best of the best. Enjoy!

Grgich Hills was started by Croatian-born winemaker Miljenko Grgi´ c (whose name was anglicized as Mike Grgich when he moved to Canada in the 1950s) in 1977. Mike had previously been winemaker for Robert Mondavi and Château Montelena – indeed, it was Mike who made the famous 1973 Château Montelena Chardonnay that triumphed in the Judgment of Paris tasting in 1976. Mike’s grand-nephew, Ivo Jeramaz began working with the winery in 1986. Ivo was born in Croatia to a family of grape growers and as a boy he assisted in making wine for his family’s enjoyment. However, he didn’t plan on becoming a winemaker. Ivo earned a master’s of science degree in engineering from the University of Zagreb and dreamed of coming to California to work as an engineer. With the help of his uncle, Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, Ivo followed his dream and came to the Napa Valley. He quickly fell in love with the scenic beauty of the area and became fascinated with winemaking. During his almost three-decades at Grgich Hills, Ivo has worked his way up in responsibility, learning the classic style and art of winemaking from his uncle, supported by the tools of science and technology. Under the guidance of his uncle, Ivo is now responsible for the day-to-day operations in the cellar and the vineyard, including naturally farming Grgich Hills’ 366 acres without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. “At Grgich Hills, we grow grapes like my grandfather did, farming without chemicals and pesticides,” Ivo says. “Mike taught me early in my career that you need great grapes to make great wine. Over the years, I’ve focused on working with the land. Through our natural farming, it’s been very rewarding to seeing the soil alive with healthier plants than under conventional farming. It allows the wines to be more authentic – more distinctive.” The 2011 Paris Tasting Commemorative Chardonnay will be released on May 24, 2014. To celebrate this anticipated event, the wines release coincides with the “Day for Peace”. 5% of the Commemorative Chardonnay sales on the day of the release will be donated to “Roots of Peace” to support its mission of “Mines to Vines.” Mike Grgich has been a long-time supporter of Roots of Peace and its mission of replacing landmines with grape vines Grgich Hills Estate creates world-class varietals including Chardonnay, Fume Blanc, Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Violetta and Grgi´ c Vina (fine wines from Croatia).

Family is the key description of the Vezér Family Vineyards in Suisun Valley with the friendliest and most hospitable staff in the wine country region. Owners Frank and Liz Vezér share a culture of hospitality from the combination of his Hungarian and her Portuguese heritage. In addition, there is a very good chance you will meet them during your visit mingling with the visitors explaining the passion they have for producing Petite Sirah and Zinfandel grapes at their vineyards, which ultimately result in elegant wines. Inspired by the movie, A Walk InThe Clouds, Frank and Liz enlisted their entire family to participate in the family winery business. Liz is a master blender and like Frank, is involved in all aspects of the vineyards and wineries and other family members have been involved in the business over the years. Son-in-law Jake Stuessy works as the Winemaker and son-in-law Marco Oropeza works in hospitality in the tasting rooms. Chris Livadas, the General Manager, is an unofficial family member. Chris ensures the new hires match the hospitable passion for customer service the family members share. In fact, when you visit again, there is a good chance you will see the same staff each time to impress and delight you with their friendliness. Wine tasting is available at the Mankas Corners Winery, The Blue Victorian Winery and the Vezér Estate, which are nearby properties. Each of the three Vezér tasting room locations are ideal for visiting with groups of six to eight people allowing you to have comfortable semi-private table settings both inside and outside in the private gardens with special event areas for private parties and weddings.

Visit the Mankas Corners Steakhouse or stay at the Barrel Room Cottage, which are all part of the Vezér Family Vineyards at Mankas Corners.

Library of Wines
Vezér Family Vineyards specialize in their Petite Sirah and Zinfandel with an Estate bottle and a La Salette Petite Sirah Blend. For growing Petite Sirah, the Suisun Valley Appellation received a rating as the oldest and best in the State of California by U.C Davis University. The Suisun Valley has the perfect soil and microclimate, which enables these vines to develop premium grapes. They established their own wines in 2001 with their premiere Zinfandel vintage in 2003. The Vezér family practices the 1938 approach to their wine making, which was born with Frank Vezér’s father, Frank Vezér II. This method consists of balancing opposing elements to create wines that are dynamic, complex, and embody the classical ideals that

define the world’s finest wines. Liz said, “A process of blending, cold stabilization and filtering are critical and requires constant monitoring and lab analysis. Tasting the results of a Vezér bottle is all worth the trouble. Come and see how the new meets the old and how they all blend together so well into something so fantastic.” The library of spectacular wines includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Verdelho, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Black Muscat. Frank said, “Vezér wines are smooth, sexy and complex, some say it makes them even blush when they are having a glass of Vezér Red.” Their wines received accolades and awards across the country and internationally. Liz said, “Vezér wine is styled in a manner that every wine we make is able to be enjoyed completely on its own, not requiring food to soften its palette. Something that when you need alone time, nothing else will do. Vezér wine is designed for moments when you simply want to experience the raw pleasure of the vine – that is the time for Vezér wine.”

Ménage à Trois 2012 Zinfandel
Newest Addition Just Released
BY MINDY JOYCE, WINERYCRITIC.COM

MÉNAGE À TROIS NAPA CELLARS & FOLIE À DEUX WINERY

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 7481 St. Helena Highway, Napa CA 94558 (707) 944-2565

If you’re on the hunt to find some of the most affordable wines in the Valley, Ménage à Trois on Highway 29 in Oakville is a great place to visit. Not only can you taste all of the Ménage à Trois wines here, but the tasting room is also home to two other brands owned and operated by Trinchero Family Estates: Napa Cellars and Folie à Deux. This makes for a great place to visit as you are sure to find something to suit everyone’s taste buds. What you can expect here is a fun and memorable experience, and a friendly tasting room team eager to tell you about their range of wines. Ménage à Trois wines, in particular, are every day “go to” wines that are party favorites. What people love about them is that they are affordable enough to be daily indulgences, consistent and approachable. The name in itself is of course intriguing and I learned that they are a result of “what happens when you put three attractive, single, young grapes in one exquisite bottle.” The wines are branded as playful and fun, and that is also what you’ll find at this tasting room. It turns out that Ménage à Trois Wines have an almost cult-like following. Those that know the brand, and there are millions out there, absolutely love it. During my tasting room visit, customers were eager to tell me what they love about these wines. Not only are wines are affordable (at around $10 a bottle) and well distributed, but they are a perfect “go to” for those that like to indulge every day, for any occasion, whether it is a casual barbeque, girls night or wedding. Hearing this, it is no surprise that Ménage à Trois is America’s favorite wine. The “Red Blend” has taken the top spot for best selling wine for the past five years, the “White Blend” is now the number one premium white, and rosé is also in the number one spot of rosés sold in the U.S. A new addition to the Ménage à Trois range is their Zinfandel that launched last month. The new Zinfandel is priced in the $10-$15 category and is sure to be a barbecue favorite with plenty of vanilla spice aromas and an abundance of bright fruit on the palate. For a $10 tasting fee you’ll try three different wines of your choice including the Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Moscato, as well as the “White Blend,” Rosé, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, and what seems like everyone’s favorite, the “Red Blend”. Another highlight at the Napa Cellars, Folie à Deux and Ménage à Trois tasting room is the outdoor patio. One peek outside and you’ll see why this is a favorite picnic spot with many visitors to the Valley. Surrounded by picturesque vineyards, and stunning views of the Mayacamas Mountains, this is a beautiful location to sit back and relax with a picnic. The tasting room team recommends stopping by Yountville Deli, Oakville Grocery or Dean and Deluca for picnic supplies then spending the afternoon on the patio and indulging in a tasting or bottle of wine. At the Napa Cellars, Folie à Deux and Ménage à Trois tasting room you will find something for everyone. The red wine lovers will enjoy tasting the Cabernets, Red Wine blends, and for the white wine drinkers they can indulge in some of the Sauvignon Blanc or White Blends. It’s also a great opportunity to get an introduction to some new favorites such as the new Zinfandel. One thing is for sure; you are in good hands with the knowledgeable and friendly tasting room team here.

Tedeschi Family Winery Earns A Suite In Mount View Hotel
The Mount View Hotel is honoring the Tedeschi Family Winery by naming their most popular suite after the Tedeschi Family Winery. The suite is on the second floor and faces the main street, Lincoln Avenue, with a plush queen bed and separate sitting room. The Mount View Hotel was founded in 1912, just seven years before the Tedeschi Family settled in Calistoga from Pisa, Italy. Two of the longest standing names in Calistoga – joining them seems like an appropriate “tip of the hat” to both of their longevity in the same town.

Mount View Hotel
Voted “Best Boutique Hotel In Napa Valley” by the Northbay Bohemian Readers and celebrating over 100 years of hospitality, eco-friendly Mount View Hotel & Spa is located in the heart of downtown Calistoga. Guests experience the Art of Relaxation with amenities and spa treatments designed with relaxation in mind with signature amenities including breakfast in bed, room service, free WIFI, cabanas, pool, mineral Whirlpool and much more. The property features a mix of guestrooms, luxury winery suites, private winery cottages, two restaurants and an award-winning spa to inspire romance, rejuvenation and relaxation in legendary Napa Valley wine country. Mount View Hotel & Spa is located at 1457 Lincoln Avenue in Calistoga, just a short drive or easy bike ride to the Tedeschi Family Winery. For more information, visit the website at www.MountViewHotel.com.

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 “oldworld.” 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, thirdgeneration Tedeschi, 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 that 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 friends and able to put down in the wine cellar,” 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 hand-tended. 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 a.m. to 5 p.m. for

tasting. There is no commercial signage, so look for the address (2779 Grant Street) to enjoy the winery’s private setting and picnic area!

ZD Wines’ Petit Abacus Sells for $100K ($1,667 a bottle) at 2014 Premiere Napa Valley!
ZD Wines’ Petit Abacus is a fanciful take on the winery’s exclusive and limited-production offering, Abacus – a solera style blend of every vintage of ZD Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ever produced. The current release fifteenth bottling includes 21 vintages and retails for $550 per bottle. When asked about Abacus, Jason Smith, Master Sommelier and Director of Wine for Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas said, “Abacus combines the depth and complexity achieved from long term aging with the youthful excitement of more recent vintages. We love to serve this small production bottling to our guests at Bellagio, as it always exceeds their expectations.” ZD Wines’ five-case lot of Petit Abacus sold for $100,000 ($1,667 per bottle) at the eighteenth annual Premiere Napa Valley trade auction. This annual event, hosted for the wine trade only, is held at the Culinary Institute of America in the Napa Valley. This year’s event raised a record-breaking sum of almost $6 million! ZD winemakers Chris Pisani and Brandon deLeuze handcrafted the Petit Abacus auction lot by tapping into the 21-vintage-strong Abacus solera residing in ZD’s cellar, masterfully blending in a 7% addition of Petit Verdot for this one-of-a-kind five-case bottling. The intensity of the bidding race over this lot was felt throughout the auction room at the Culinary Institute of America, with multiple bidders scrambling to secure Petit Abacus. The winning bidder was Durrel Smith, Owner/Wine Buyer for Beverage Warehouse in Los Angeles, a long-term attendee of Premiere Napa Valley. “ZD Wines epitomizes Napa Valley’s best, with world class wines produced by a first class family,” said Smith. “Their wines reflect the love and hard work of the deLeuze family and their entire team. Beverage Warehouse is lucky to have won this special lot – Petit Abacus is an absolute standout!” continuously to perfect the art of blending, ZD is known nationally and internationally for quality, consistency and style.

Mumm Napa®’s Newest Photography Exhibit Champions Pioneering Bay Area Fine Art Photography
Photographs by more than 20 artists who emerged from the first ten years of the California School of Fine Arts (CFSA) in San Francisco, including works by Pirkle Jones, Ruth Mandel, Ira Latour and John Upton, are now on display in a new exhibit at the Fine Art Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa in Rutherford. Titled The Golden Decade: Photography at the California School of Fine Arts, 19451955, the exhibit runs through July 13, 2014, at the winery’s Fine Art Photography Gallery. The CFSA photography program, established in 1945 by Ansel Adams and developed by Minor White, was the first academic department in the country to teach photography as a fine art. Notable instructors, including Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham and Lisette Model, placed equal emphasis on aesthetic sensitivity and technical expertise, inspiring their students to create stunning images that captured the lives, emotions

Judd’s Hill Wine and Food in Balance Seminar 2014
Judd’s Hill Winery and Microcrush has always been a leader in creating fun, interactive and engaging wine experiences for their visitors. Since opening their tasting room, located on Napa’s Silverado Trail, they have hosted guests daily for intimate seated tasting experiences. For years, they have guided singles, couples and groups of all sizes through the process of creating their own personal cuvee in their, now famous, Bottle Blending Day Camp experience. Since 1991, through their Custom MicroCrush business, they have provided full-service winemaking operations for would-be vintners looking to produce a barrel or two of their very own wine. And, just recently, they have developed a brand new experience that demystifies the potentially daunting process of pairing your favorite foods with wine. Participants in the Judd’s Hill Wine and Food in Balance Seminar build wine and food pairing skills for life! This casual and fun seminar, led by a professional wine educator, gives participants all of the necessary tools to confidently pair wine with their favorite foods. By understanding the dominant features found in different wines and how they are impacted by various food flavors, a new level of pairing confidence will be achieved by every participant in this 90-minute wine and food flavors tasting experience. Seminar guests taste samples of five award-winning Judd’s Hill wines including their 2012 Napa Valley Viognier, 2009 Milliken Creek Estate Pinot Noir, 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel, 2009 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon and 2012 Tardy Harvest Roussanne. As the wines are tasted, participants are guided to taste a selection of food

flavors that enhance the flavor of the wines in a variety of ways. Although this seminar is held daily, seating is extremely limited and guests are encouraged to reserve their tasting well in advance. Tickets are $40/person. Judd’s Hill consistently ranks among Napa’s highest-rated wineries for both wine quality and friendly customer service. Check them out on Yelp to see for yourself! If you are searching for winery experiences that are a bit more interactive and engaging than a standard tasting, then go to www.juddshill.com or call (707) 255-2332 to make a reservation for a visit to Judd’s Hill. They are at the top of our list of innovative and fun, “Must Visit” wineries!

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Annual Taste Alexander Valley Weekend May 16-18 at the Historic Asti Winery
Winegrowers add unique ‘Private Access’ events on Saturday and Sunday for wine enthusiasts
The 17th rendition of Taste Alexander Valley, the annual appellation event celebrating the renowned Alexander Valley, will be held May 16, 17 and 18 in and around the vineyards just north of Healdsburg. More than 25 wineries will open their vineyards, wineries, tasting rooms and caves for guests to enjoy the latest releases of world-class wines made from grapes grown in the sumptuous Alexander Valley. The weekend kicks off with the Opening Celebration, Friday evening, May 16th at the historic original home of Italian Swiss Colony – the Asti Winery in Cloverdale. Now home to the Souverain brand, the Asti Winery evokes the early wine- and Champagnemaking era that long preceded Prohibition. The backdrop for the event are the amazing and original Champagne vaults built in 1910, which still boast the original signage for the Grand Prix Winner of the Torino Wine Exposition in 1911 – Golden State Extra Dry Champagne, made by winemaker Pietro Rossi for Italian Swiss Colony, owned by Asti’s own immigrant icon, Andrea Sbarboro. Running from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., the outdoor celebration will feature reserve and library wines from throughout the Alexander Valley, allowing guests a special opportunity to interact and mingle with local vintners, growers and winemakers before the weekend festivities kick into high gear. Returning for a third year are notable local guest chefs – Josh Silvers of Jackson’s Bar & Oven, Jeff Mall of Zin Restaurant & Wine Bar, and Carlo Cavallo of Meritage Sonoma. Each chef will be creating passed hors d’oeuvres and small plates to pair with featured Alexander Valley wines, poured by winemakers and vintners of participating wineries. On Saturday and Sunday, May 17 and 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.,

wineries will host individual parties at sites throughout Alexander Valley. Wineries will create colorful and engaging decorative environments for their TAV guests, often including live music and entertainment to enhance the wine and food offerings. For the first time this year, the growers are introducing a new series of events entitled Private Access Alexander Valley. Private Access (PA) events are designed to heighten and advance the guest experience by offering more personalized, in-depth wine exploration of special wines for tasting and purchase in an intimate winery, vineyard, cellar or wine cave setting, distinctly apart from the historic TAV consumer experience. A Private Access pass will allow each guest access to their choice of two VIP experiences. PA events and ticketing will be offered online through the Taste Alexander Valley website once guests purchase the basic weekend pass.

Cellars, Clos du Bois, deLorimier Winery, Field Stone Winery & Vineyard, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Hanna Winery & Vineyards, Hawkes Wine, J. Rickards Winery, Kelley & Young, Medlock Ames, Pech Merle Winery, Pendleton Estate Vineyards & Winery, Praxis Cellars, Quaking Hills Winery, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Sapphire Hill Winery, Simi Winery, Soda Rock Winery, Souverain at Asti, Starlite Vineyards, Stonestreet Winery, Stryker Sonoma, Stuhlmuller Vineyards, Trione Vineyards & Winery and White Oak Vineyards & Winery. Sponsors for this year’s weekend include American AgCredit, Bohemian, Geyserville Inn, KRSH 95.9, Press Democrat, Pure Luxury Transportation, Sonoma Magazine and Wine & Spirits.

Alexander Valley
An hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge lies the Alexander Valley, located at the northern end of Sonoma County. The Alexander Valley is 22 miles long and varies in width from two to seven miles. There are 76,900 acres of land, of which 15,000 acres are planted to premium wine grapes. World-famous Cabernet Sauvignon grapes thrive from the Valley floor all the way up the rolling hillsides and mountain ridges. The gravelly loam soils straddling the river encourage Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot to flourish. Alexander Valley also produces Zinfandel grapes as well as Rhone varieties, such as Syrah and Viognier.

Ticketing and Passes
Weekend passes and Opening Celebration tickets are available at www.alexandervalley.org. Passes are $65 in advance and $75 at the door. Tickets for the Opening Celebration are $95 in advance only and may be purchased with a weekend pass for the best value price of $140, with limited availability. Tickets for Private Access Events on Saturday and Sunday, are available to ticketed guests, on the website. This year’s participants are Alexander Valley Vineyards, Arbios

TRENTADUE WINERY
A Touch of Tuscany in Sonoma County
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH®

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 19170 Geyserville Avenue, Geyserville, CA (707) 433-3104 | www.trentadue.com

Located just outside the small-but-mighty town of Geyserville is an oasis of Californian/Italian hospitality, just waiting for you to come explore, sip, savor and stay a while. Trentadue Winery is home to fabulous wines, gracious hospitality, gorgeous grounds and one of Sonoma County’s premiere event centers. Trentadue Winery is family-owned. Leo and Evelyn Trentadue purchased the 208-acre ranch in the late 1950s and their son Victor and daughter Annette are involved on a daily basis, making sure their family business continues to thrive. Patriarch Leo sadly passed away recently and Victor and Annette are proudly carrying on the family legacy of warm hospitality and excellent wines. Victor Trentadue says, “It’s just a fun place to be!” The tasting room is an Italianate villa, surrounded with beautiful landscaping and burbling fountains. There is a beautiful redwoodshaded picnic area in front of the tasting room, with several tables inviting visitors to relax and stay a while. Plans are afoot to add a Pintanque (lawn bowling) court adjacent to the picnic area in the near future. The event center sits off to the side, surrounded by a hedge that encompasses redwood and oak tree shaded lawns. There is a good selection of non-wine gift items displayed in tasteful groupings around the tasting room and art from local artists decorates the warm earth tone walls. A selection of cheeses, cold cuts, crackers, estate olive oil and other picnic fare is available to enjoy outside in the picnic area. Winemaker Miro Tcholakov has been crafting the wines at Trentadue for over 14 years and all of his wines are elegant, balanced and absolutely delicious! There is truly a wine for everyone’s palate including port style wines and grappa! I tasted several wines during my visit and really enjoyed everything I tasted. The following wines were my favorites:––– • 2011 La Storia Zinfandel ($32): This is Zinfandel with a capital “Z”, folks! Mouthwatering aromas of blackberry, plum and peppery spice lead into a silky, luscious, perfectly balanced mouthful of consistent flavors. • 2012 La Storia Cabernet Sauvignon ($38): This Alexander Valley Cabernet could give Napa Cabernet Sauvignons at twice the price a run for the money! It’s a classic! Black cherry, mocha, cigar box and baking spice aromas continue as flavors in the richly textured mouthfeel. Elegant and delicious! Trentadue Winery is one of the first places to check out if you are planning a wedding or other special event. Their event center is fully equipped for any kind of event you could imagine and its professional kitchen is a caterer’s dream. The creative folks at Trentadue love hosting events as well – they do an annual “Dog Days” event, with dog whisperers, pet psychics and more, a Lobster Fest (yum!), a Family Picnic, which is open to the public and more! Gondola tours of the vineyards are available by appointment and a private tasting area is available for groups of up to 25 people.

Perfect Pairs

BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

Lobster Saffron Risotto with 2003 Gloria Ferrer Carneros Cuvée
Lobster and sparkling wine makes an absolutely delicious food pairing and is the epitome of wine country decadence. Sparkling wine should be enjoyed often and the limited-production 2003 Gloria Ferrer Carneros Cuvée is perfectly paired with the Lobster Saffron Risotto. The effervescent sparkling wine opens up with aromas of Asian pear, Granny Smith apples and hints of toasted brioche bringing out the sweetness of the lobster. This dish is perfect as a starter or main course and serving a glass of sparkling wine along with it makes a dramatic presentation. On the palate, this wine carries great finesse and a wonderful complexity. Flavors of baked apple and Meyer lemon create for a balanced acidity and lingering finish complimenting the risotto perfectly. The Carneros Cuvée – Gloria Ferrer’s flagship Tête de Cuvée – is delicious on its own and yet is so food friendly and can be paired with any seafood, cheese course, and creamy risotto or roast chicken. This recipe is courtesy of Chef Andrew Wilson of Carneros Bistro at The Lodge of Sonoma and makes a simple dish taste exceptionally grand. He cultivates ingredients from surrounding wine country to create bold, hearty bistro cooking. Working closely with local growers, his menu features the very best from local Sonoma farms, ranches and dairies as well as the restaurant’s own year-round, 480square-foot garden. The 2003 Carneros Cuvée represents the best fruit from 335 acres of estate vineyards as well as their winemaking expertise in the art of blending. This special Cuvée is only produced in a select vintage year and is a blend of 53% Pinot Noir and 47% Chardonnay, offering a synthesis of effusive ripe fruit expression with superb structure and finesse. With more than ten years en tirage and a minimum of six months on the cork, this decade-old wine is remarkably fresh, rich and complex and represents the ultimate statement of Gloria Ferrer’s sparkling house style.

LOBSTER SAFFRON RISOTTO
• 2 1.5lb Maine lobsters, steamed, meat removed & shells reserved and broken up • 1/2 cup onion, medium dice • 1/4 cup onion, small dice • 1/4 cup carrot, medium dice • 1/4 cup celery, medium dice • 1 teaspoon saffron

Serves 4
• 2 quarts water • 3 tablespoons olive oil • 1 cup arborio rice • 1/4 cup Carneros Cuvee • 1/4 cup blanched English peas • 2 tablespoons cold butter • Salt to taste

TO MAKE SAFFRON LOBSTER BROTH Over low heat, sauté the 1/2 cup of onion, the celery, and the carrots in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until soft but not colored. Add the saffron and sauté lightly for two minutes, until fragrant. Add the reserved lobster shells and the water. Bring to a boil, skim, and allow to barely simmer for thirty minutes. TO MAKE THE RISOTTO Over medium heat, sauté the 1/4 cup of onion in the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil for three minutes without coloring. Add the rice and sauté for two minutes, until it begins to give off a nutty aroma. Add the Carneros Cuvee, increase the heat to medium-high, and stir until the rice has absorbed nearly all of the wine. Add enough warm saffron lobster broth to just cover the rice, and stir until it is nearly absorbed. Repeat this process until the rice is al dente (just slightly toothsome). When the rice has reached desired doneness, stir in the butter off the heat. Finish by adding the lobster meat and the English peas. Season to taste with salt.

Ledson Winery & Vineyards Chardonnays Receive Impressive Scores
Winery Receives a 96 and a 93 First wines with David Ramey
Sonoma Valley’s Ledson Winery & Vineyards recently received a very impressive 96 and a lovely 93 from the Beverage Testing Institute on the 2012 Russian River Valley Chardonnay ($36) (96) and the 2012 Carneros Chardonnay ($38) (93). These wines are now available at www.ledson.com and at the tasting bars at the Ledson Castle in Kenwood and the Centre du Vin on Sonoma Plaza. “These wines are the first wines we’ve made since bringing consulting winemaker David Ramey on board. These scores suggest we are doing it right and creating wines of extraordinary taste and character.” exclaimed winemaker Steve Ledson. “I couldn’t be more pleased.” The 2012 Russian River Valley Chardonnay has restrained yet complex nose dominated by fresh grapefruit and supported by subtle fig and honey. The palate shows fruits that continue into the finish. This Chardonnay has terrific fruit power without being too heavy. Interesting layers of fruit reveal themselves as it opens up in the glass and becomes more complex with a little air. It’s a quality Chardonnay that will suit a cheese plate, seafood and pasta alike. Ledson prides himself on making a wine for everyone’s palate and pocket book. Fifth generation Sonoma winemaker Steve Ledson founded Ledson Winery and Vineyards in 1993. The winery is located at 7335 Sonoma Highway in Kenwood and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the winery at (707) 833-2330 or visit the website at www.ledson.com. When in Sonoma, stay at the Ledson Hotel located on Sonoma’s historic plaza for the perfect wine country weekend and dine at the French Bistro Centre du Vin, a launching pad for everything wine country. Enjoy the best hospitality the region has to offer with Ledson Winery and Ledson Hotel.

It’s fresh and complete with captivating primary fruit and complexities that tie in with an appealing texture and soft acidity through the palate. The 2012 Carneros Chardonnay has a lifted nose of apricot and fresh spring flowers – it’s instantly recognizable as quality Carneros. The palate shows more apricot that is joined by fresh mandarin and tropical

Pinot Noirs from a variety of producers will be on offer to pair with the meal. After a press tasting on Saturday morning, the grand tasting will again take place in the vineyards at Goldeneye Winery in Philo. The many styles of Pinot Noir on offer will be paired with Karina’s Paella (including a live cooking demonstration), local smoked salmon and sausages from Roundman’s Smoke House, Pennyroyal Farmstead cheeses, wood-fired pizzas from Piacci Pizza, cookies from The Mendocino Cookie Company and other delicious bites. There will also be live music and a silent auction to benefit the valley’s only

A Memorial Retrospective of Artist George Rodrigue’s Work will be on Display in Carmel through 2014
On Saturday, March 15 George Rodrigue Studio in Carmel (west side of Dolores between Ocean and 7th) re-opened with a memorial retrospective of the artist’s work. The retrospective will be on view at the gallery through 2014. “Dad always said that when he was in art school at Art Center in Los Angeles in the 1960s he dreamed of opening a gallery in Carmel. He realized his dream over 20 years ago and he loved to live and paint at his home in Carmel Valley,” says Jacques Rodrigue. “My family and I are excited to be able to share this show with the area that was so important to him and for the first time display works in our gallery from his entire career.” The retrospective will include works of art and ephemera spanning Rodrigue’s illustrious career and life focusing on his time in California. The Rodrigue family and Bullard have curated an unparalleled survey of Los Angeles Art Center art school works, early Louisiana landscapes, Cajun portraits, iconic Blue Dogs, paintings completed in California, and personal memorabilia from George Rodrigue’s home and studio in Carmel. “With the death of George Rodrigue, our state and nation have lost one of its most unique, popular and memorable visual artists. For nearly fifty years he created an extraordinary body of work that captured the special qualities of Louisiana’s Cajun culture, bringing national and international recognition to his heritage and to himself,” said E. John Bullard, Director Emeritus of the New Orleans Museum of Art who co-curated the exhibit with the Rodrigue family. The Rodrigue Gallery in Carmel is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The Rodrigue family has released a limited number of prints and mixed media works for sale through the gallery.

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINEMAKER FAVORITES

Up close and personal with rockstar winemakers
WCTW: What’s your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order? DG: Now you’re trying to get me in trouble since I have a lot of friends in the local restaurant scene…love Cole’s Chop House, Uva Trattoria, Eiko’s, Don Giovanni’s but my newest favorite is Napa Valley Bistro. Chef Bernardo Ayala puts out some seriously delicious flavors. WCTW: If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go? DG: I like Fagiani’s in the summer and Eiko’s in the winter. WCTW: What do you do for fun? DG: Golf; that’s usually fun as long as you can laugh at yourself. WCTW: What’s your favorite local winery tour experience? DG: I think John Anthony has a cool concept going on downtown but it’s also tough to beat our food and wine pairing experience at The Hess Collection. Chef Chad is a master at blending flavors. WCTW: What’s your favorite go-to meal and bottle of wine to have at home? DG: A steak on my BBQ and a bottle of my own (Guffy) Syrah! WCTW: What other places do you like to “hang out?” DG: Most of the time at home, since I spend a lot of time at the winery during the harvest, but I also enjoy the depth of the beer list at Billco’s and a good game of pool. WCTW: What’s an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? DG: I’m not sure; I think I am pretty straightforward. Work hard and play hard has made for many memorable years, and many more to come. ABOUT: A California native who grew up in San Jose, David spent summers with his grandparents on a 500acre Kansas farm and has been at the forefront of sustainable vineyard practices. “Being environmentally conscious is not only the right thing to do, but in the end produces the best tasting wine.” David is in the vineyards year-round. “I learned very early that I have to walk the vines. As a student I loved Cabernet, especially from Napa Valley and it inspired me to go into winemaking. Now, I’m literally on top of Napa, making mountain Cabernets. Mountain fruit is different from valley floor fruit and so are the wines.” WCTW: ML: WCTW: ML: WCTW: ML: WCTW: ML:

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

What’s your favorite local restaurant and what do you like to order?

Meritage and I order the chicken breast with Sage Cabernet Reduction Sauce.
Where do you go for coffee and a pastry?

Basque Boulangerie and have a de-caf Cappuccino and Croissant.
If you are meeting a friend for cocktails, where do you go?

La Casa for margaritas.
What do you do for fun?

My fiancé and I go to Las Vegas (what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!). We also like going to Broadway shows and musicals in San Francisco. Loved the Transcendence Theatre Company this past year at Jack London State Park!
What’s your favorite on-the-go meal or food truck?

WCTW: ML: WCTW: ML:

The taco stand at night at the Hwy 12 corner near Staples. Tacos al Pastor.
What other places do you like to “hang out?”

We go to our “Casa de Campo” or country house in Alexander Valley; next door to my vineyards. Love having a glass of Pedroncelli Zinfandel and pasta at Santi in Geyserville. In general, hang out in Alexander Valley on the weekends when the weather is ideal.

MARK LYON
SEBASTIANI VINEYARDS AND WINERY
Open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p..m 389 4th St E, Sonoma, CA 95476 (707) 933-3230 | www.sebastiani.com

WCTW: What’s an interesting fact that most people don’t know about you? ML: I was awarded the “Distinguished Alumni Award” in 2005 from U.C. Davis School of Agriculture and Engineering for my community service and development of joint research projects with the University. A coveted award that has been given to industry acolytes such as Robert Mondavi and Justin Meyer. ABOUT: Mark Lyon’s career in winemaking spans over 30 years of distinction and achievement. Mark graduated with a B.S. in Fermentation Science from the University of California at Davis in 1978 and was hired by Sebastiani Vineyards one year later. In 1985, he was put in charge of harvest at the winery and was instrumental in making the inaugural vintage of Sebastiani’s famed Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon. Mark believes his best successes have been with wines that blend different vineyard sites within a broader appellation. He has since focused exclusively on producing the best quality wines across all tiers from the Sonoma County Selection to the Proprietor’s Selection. It’s exciting to be at Sebastiani these days!
