WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINE COUNTRY NEWS

Wine Garage – Wine Shop ... or Winery?
Most readers have learned over the years that some of the best wine-deals in Napa Valley can be found at the Wine Garage in Calistoga. When Todd and Joy Miller moved to Napa Valley in 2001, they were surprised to find that they could hardly find any wines for less than $45 a bottle. Then they went to a dinner party at a winemaker’s home, and were shocked to discover that many winemakers couldn’t afford to drink the wines they made. That’s when the Millers decided to open the first wine shop in Napa Valley that only carried wines under $25 a bottle. So in 2003, Todd Miller swapped his corporate necktie for jeans and boots and started scouring Northern California for great, undiscovered wines to offer at his new wine shop, the Wine Garage in Calistoga. Miller drove the roads less traveled, meeting with winemakers, walking in their vineyards and tasting their grapes, barrel samples and finished wines. The winemakers, tickled to have a real, live wine buyer at their winery, shared stories with Miller over a glass of wine at the dinner table. The Miller’s started a wine club three years ago shipping six bottle shipments for $100. Well, the club was so successful that last year even Rachael Ray heard about it and featured the Wine Garage on her Tasty Travels show on the wine country. Way back in 2003, when Todd was getting permits for the store he had a vision of selling wine right from the barrel in half gallon jugs just like they do in France and Italy. To do that he needed an out right winery license and permit. He got them – much to the shock of the local winery folks because that kind of thinking was unheard of in Napa. You can’t be a “winery” and a “wine shop” at the same time in the same place. No. Well actually yes, you can … under the right circumstances. The jug program was originally delayed due to the success of the wine club but Todd did hire a winemaker and set off trying to find deals on grapes just like he had on case goods. He drove around after harvest and wrote down what vineyards still had fruit on the vine that was unsold. He sought help from his many winemaker and vineyard manager friends. He found deals. He and his winemaker, Massimo Monticelli – a former assistant winemaker at Silver Oak – made some wine. Good wine. Todd found some Cabernet grapes up on Diamond Mountain back in 2006 from a grower that was nervous about a rain storm coming in right during the peak of harvest. He cut a deal. Then he made another deal on some Zinfandel and then later on some Syrah. After 18

months in barrel the wine is ready. Go taste it for yourself, for free. The Cabernet from the Diamond Mountain section of Napa gets very expensive – up to $275 per bottle from one winery – but the vineyard Todd found was across the road from the boundary of the Diamond Mountain AVA and sold for less money because you couldn’t put “Diamond Mountain” on the label. The Wine Garage “Hillside” Cab sells for $45. It is yummy, too. Big and rich, dark in the glass, smooth tannins, ripe fruit, chocolate covered coffee beans comes to mind. The Zin and Syrah are equally good and sell for less than the Cab, $30 and $25, respectfully. The Joy Ride is a white blend of Albarino, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Muscat Canelli. The wine was fermented completely dry in stainless steel tanks without malolactic fermentation. The nose is extremely fragrant with white peach, apricot, meyer lemon and jasmine. The body is full with generous weight on the mid palate and a rich, silky mouthfeel. There is surprising acidity on the clean and crisp finish. This is a perfect wine for a wide variety of foods which include sushi, cracked crab, lemon chicken and many cheeses. Fill ’er up with wine “pumped” into the half-gallon jugs from the specially designed gas station nozzles. Two different Wine Garage blends are offered and filled to order, one Bordeaux based (read: Cab) and one Rhone (Syrah) and are selling for $29.99 per half gallon jug that you fill yourself. Visit Wine Garage at 1020 Foothill Blvd. (Highway 29) in Calistoga; open every day from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (707) 942-5332 or visit the website at www.winegarage.net.

WINE COUNTRY NEWS | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

The Candlelight Inn
by Charles Neave
For almost six years I lived right around the corner from Napa’s Candlelight Inn. When I’d go out for a walk, I couldn’t help but look down the small lane it occupies, and it always enchanted me. Part fairy tale, part hidden retreat, it cast a mystical spell. It was like a childhood fantasy, a storybook illusion. Then one day I walked to the end of the lane, knocked on the door, and asked if I could look inside. What followed was a tour, an invitation to come back anytime, and a continuation of that enchantment. In 1929 when Napa’s postmaster built this Tudor-style mansion I’m sure he had no idea what the Valley would one day become. No one did. But with its whitewashed plaster, dark oak timbers and manicured grounds, the inn is now a splendid retreat for visitors to wine country. Perhaps a 15 minute walk from downtown Napa, this ten room bed and breakfast sits among towering trees – including some majestic redwoods – and backs onto quiet Napa Creek. To one side is a fenced pasture. Yet the location is still close to restaurants (more of them opening everyday it seems), shopping and wineries, including a number of popular winery tasting rooms. The rooms at the inn are all unique. Some have balconies overlooking the pool, others have decks. Some even have fireplaces and two person in-room Jacuzzi tubs. Happily, the inn’s breakfasts are famous as well. They are both casual and gourmet, and fit the overall ambiance of the property beautifully and are served in the English countryinspired dining room. A different menu is carefully prepared and served each day by the inn’s chef, and there is always an assortment of tea, freshly brewed coffee, fresh juice and seasonal fruit. Tables for two provide the option for privacy, or if you’d like, converse with fellow guests as you look out onto the grounds abutting the creek where the pool is located. Except or the sounds of birds and the rustle of leaves in the trees, it is serenity personified. And by the way, if you are particularly enamored by one or more of the dishes and would like the recipe, just ask. It’s another souvenir to take home In the warm months, of which there are an envious number, the pool is a popular meeting place for visitors, many of whom return on a regular basis. In cooler months the parlor becomes the focal point. Local and national newspapers are spread out on the dining room table and an assortment of snacks appear each afternoon. Some days local wineries such as Robert Biale and many others may come and pour their wines for a complimentary late-afternoon tasting. It is also a great way to catch up on local news and local insight, something also provided by the inn’s owners and always-helpful staff. Just one of so many reasons to put this stellar property at the top of your agenda. The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive just a minutes drive west of the intersection of Route 29 and First Street. For reservations and information call our 1-800-624-0395 or within the (707) at 257-3717. Also, reservations may be made at www.candlelightinn.com and be sure to follow them on www.facebook.com/thecandlelightinn.

INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER by Len Napolitano

Why are wines blended?
The purpose of blending is to create a more interesting wine. A winemaker may feel that the addition of wine made from another grape will either fill in any weaknesses of the primary grape or create a more complex wine, and consequently, a more pleasing wine to drink. Perhaps the most famous blended red wine in the world is Bordeaux, from France. It is a blend of two to five grapes, the dominant ones being Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The other grapes that make up a red Bordeaux wine are Petit Verdot (contributes color), Cabernet Franc (contributes tannic structure and richness of flavor), and Malbec (contributes flavor). Merlot is often used to blend with Cabernet Sauvignon to help soften, or round out, the Cabernet Sauvignon, which can sometimes contain firmer tannins. Syrah with Cabernet Sauvignon is also a popular duo having complementary characteristics. The percentage breakdown of the components that make up a blend are sometimes indicated on a label, but it is not required to do so for American wines. In Australia, however, where the Cabernet/Syrah combo is frequently found, label laws must show the percentages of each grape that make up a blend. Grapes that are used for blending purposes are chosen to either add flavor, mouthfeel, acidity, finish or aging potential. It is also possible for white wines to be made from a blend of grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc combined with Semillion, but white wine blends are usually less common than red blends. When producers in the United States make a blended wine using the same grapes that are used to make Bordeaux wine, they are permitted to identify these wines as “Meritage” style wines (rhymes with heritage). This is a unique, American term that may only be used on a wine label when the wine is blended from the Bordeaux grapes mentioned above. If a non-Bordeaux grape, such as Zinfandel, is part of the blend, it is technically not a “Meritage” style wine. I find Meritage style wines to be among the very best of California red wines. They are elegant, layered with complex aromas and flavors and pair beautifully with many meat dishes.

Gloria Ferrer Pinot Noir Pairs Well with Valentine’s Day
Take the Fickleness Out of Love with Romantic Pinot Noir-Themed Gift Ideas
Love can be fickle, so can Pinot Noir. In both cases, tender loving care, respect and attention to detail go a long way in growing it into something truly beautiful. So this Valentine’s Day, Gloria Ferrer is offering Pinot Noir themed pairings both men and women can use to celebrate their love. Imbimbo. Enjoy the sensual sounds of Flamenco while enjoying a decadent Dessert Buffet and two glasses of award-winning sparkling wine. Price is $35 per person, $29.75 for wine club members.

For Him:
• They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. That means cooking him a great meal paired with the perfect wine. Start off with stuffed mushrooms and a bottle of Gloria Ferrer Carneros Pinot Noir to really set the mood. Follow that with braised short ribs, risotto, salad and a bottle of Gloria Ferrer José S. Ferrer Pinot Noir, and the night is complete. • Or if he enjoys sharing his wine knowledge with his friends, help him show off a little with a sophisticated wine decanter, stainless steel wine stoppers and a bottle of Gloria Ferrer 2005 Rust Rock Pinot Noir. Here’s to making Valentine’s Day 2011 a special one, and if a marriage proposal is being planned, be sure to have a chilled bottle of Gloria Ferrer Carneros Cuvée on hand to toast the happy news!

For Her:
• Women try to do it all, so a gift that is totally about pure luxury and relaxation will let her know she deserves to be pampered. Put together a custom made gift basket containing a bottle of Gloria Ferrer Brut Rosé, rose scented body butter and bath salts and chocolate covered strawberries, for a purely indulgent night she won’t forget. • A night out on the town is always a treat, so tell her to get dressed up and be prepared to kick up her heels. Begin the evening at home with a glass of Gloria Ferrer VA de VI and a platter of exotic cheeses and crackers. Spoil her further with a limousine stocked with Gloria Ferrer Royal Cuvée, then hit the best club in town for a night of dancing. • Or for a more romantic night, celebrate at Gloria Ferrer’s special Valentine’s Day Concert on Saturday, February 12 at 7:30 p.m., featuring Flamenco guitarist Eric Symons and special guest Patrick

Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards
The Ferrer family of Spain established Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards as the first sparkling wine house in the Carneros region 25 years ago.

SUISUN VALLEY

Suisun Valley – Hidden But Treasured Wine Country
First, foremost and always, the Suisun Valley in Solano County just 25 minutes from Napa, has its roots – often quite literally – in the business and passion of agriculture. And nowhere is that more evident than in the rich earth and thriving vineyards and farms of the Suisun Valley, the stretch of land that runs to the west of Fairfield and Interstate 80, and borders the county of Napa on two sides. Perfectly situated between a pair of coastal mountain ranges, the Mount George Range on the west and the Vaca Mountains to the east, this verdant six by two mile valley sits within the Coastal climate region. It is also an area where fog rarely visits, though it is not far from both the Sacramento River delta and San Francisco’s San Pablo Bay. Set within this compact area are more than 10,000 acres of rich farmland, almost a third of them planted to the grapes that help supply the area’s flourishing wineries, and many with a more familiar Napa Valley label. This region is part of the North Coast Appellation, a district famous for what is known as “ultra-premium” fruit, which in the case of wine lovers everywhere means wine grapes, planted to a staggering number of both familiar and rare varieties. If you look at a map of where many growers in Napa County and beyond source their grapes or own vineyards, you will be surprised at how many have vineyard holdings here. This is in addition to the dozen or so wineries that call the Suisun Valley their home, and both make, age, bottle and market their wines here. Many also have their own tasting rooms, and during the year hold – both individually and collectively – special events to lure those who appreciate wine to their cellar doors. The Suisun Valley is also dotted with farm stands and working farms that welcome visitors. There are quaint spots to eat and relax, and it is the driving force behind the annual Tomato Festival in Fair-

field, and for other events that occur throughout the year. But most of all it stands as enduing symbol of the real, living heritage of this part of the hidden but treasured wine country of Northern California.

An Evening of Magic, Mystery & Wine
Benefits Aldea Children and Family Services

Judd’s Hill Winery Saturday, February 5th, 7:00 p.m.

Tasting Room of the Week:

Judd’s Hill Winery
Discreetly tucked to the side of famed Silverado Trail, acclaimed and local’s favorite Judd’s Hill Winery feels like a secret discovery. Judd’s Hill is a family-owned, cheerful, ecoconscious, critically acclaimed, artsy smash hit... with the added bonus of chickens clucking outside the vines! Beginning as garage winemakers, pioneering vintners Art and Bunnie Finkelstein started producing legendary wines in the Napa Valley in the 1970s. Now their son Judd and his wife Holly continue to produce ultra-premium wines with the same heartfelt and intimate style that has been the Judd’s Hill signature for more than 30 years. In addition to their own highly acclaimed wine brand, Judd’s Hill is the leader in offering opportunities for wine enthusiasts to experience winemaking. From BottleBlending Day Camp where you can create your own wine in quantities as small as three bottles, to MicroCrush™ where you can create your own wine in quantities as small as one barrel, an intimate, authentic, fulfilling experience is available to all. The tasting room offers a unique and very personal touch that is quite different from the typical tasting room atmosphere. Pat Burke, the Hospitality Manager welcomes everyone to the winery with a smile and a taste of an exclusive “winery only” wine and, if you are interested, a short production tour of the winery. Pat, will take you through a sampling of current releases along with a selection of limited edition wines which are only available at the winery or through our wine club. So, prior to your next visit, call the winery to schedule an appointment to enjoy the very intimate tasting experience. Just call (707) 255-2332. On Saturday, February 5 at 7 p.m., Judd’s Hill Winery presents An Evening of Magic, Mystery & Wine, featuring the amazing magic of Rob Zabrecky. In addition to the spell-binding magical feats of Zabrecky, guests will enjoy food from Mustards Grill paired with wine from Judd’s Hill, and delicious sweet treats to accompany the show. Proceeds of An Evening of Magic, Mystery and Wine will benefit Aldea Children and Family Services. Judd’s Hill is located at 2332 Silverado Trail (One mile north of Trancas St.), in Napa. “I’ve always been a big fan of magic, and have even dabbled in it myself, but nothing like the amazing skill of Rob Zabrecky,” said Judd Finkelstein of Judd’s Hill Winery. “When I connected with Rob and he graciously agreed to appear in Napa for this benefit for Aldea, I was beyond thrilled,” Finkelstein added. This exclusive appearance by Rob Zabrecky is limited to 48 guests, and is sure to sell-out. Tickets for An Evening of Magic, Mystery & Wine are $50 per person (tax deductible) and can be purchased at www.aldeainc.com. For more information about Aldea Children and Family Services, visit www.aldeainc.com or call (707) 224-8266. There’s simply no other magician like Rob Zabrecky, best known for pushing systematic absurdity into the realm of sublime consciousness though his aberrant character. His unique combination of mentalism, magic, off-beat humor and remarkable timing create a sum larger than it’s respective parts, but like any great entertainer, you have to see him to believe him. Visit the website at www.robzabrecky.com.

Something Old, Someone New at David Fulton Winery
Come, taste several vintages of Old Vines, Petite Sirah and meet the new staff at David Fulton Winery on Fridays, Saturdays or Mondays. (Other days with appointment: 707-967-0719)
David Fulton Winery is a very small, family-owned winery producing Petite Sirah from their historic, St. Helena estate vineyards planted in 1860. Founder David Fulton also built the town’s first stone wine cellar next to it just one year later in 1861. This dry farmed stand is the oldest known, continuously family owned and operated vineyard in the state. Currently, the vineyards and winery are owned by David Fulton’s great-grandson, Fulton Mather and his wife, Dink. The David Fulton family of friends still pick and sort the grapes by hand before fermentation and age the wine for three years in thin-staved French oak barrels in the same location as the first cellar had been dug. The resulting wine is highly acclaimed among their peers and a favorite referral among Petite Sirah fans. Total production is less than 350 cases! Happy to pour the wine for you is Richard Mather, fifth generation Fulton family and Stephanie Trotter Zacharia, the new Director of Winemaking and Sales. Stephanie comes to David Fulton Winery after a ten-year engagement at Casa Nuestra Winery, also in St Helena. “The Petite Sirah being produced at David Fulton is the best I’ve ever had. Richard and I are looking forward to the opportunity to pour it for folks right here inside the winery. We bet they’ll agree!” says, Stephanie Trotter Zacharia. “Currently we’re offering tastes of 2006 Our Sweet Petite (our port-style wine, less than 40 cases produced) and 2006 Heritage 1860 (our Bordeaux blend, less than 22 cases produced) along with a couple of vintages of our signature Old Vines, Petite Sirah.“ David Fulton Winery & Vineyards is located at 825 Fulton Lane,

just four blocks east of Highway 29, in Napa Valley’s historic downtown St. Helena. Visitors are now invited to the winery on Mondays and Fridays and most Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for tasting. Other times for tasting are available by appointment. They don’t have any commercial signage, so seek out their address (825 Fulton Lane) to enjoy the winery’s private setting! Picnic tables may be available and Stephanie Trotter Zacharia friendly canines are also welcome. The new Director of Winemaking and Sales “Like” David Fulton Winery on Facebook and follow them on Twitter: @DavidFultonPS and @StephieTZ. For more information, visit the website online at www.DavidFultonWinery.com or call (707) 967-0719.

RAS Galleries – Even owner Ronda Schaer could not have envisioned that her
affection for the little village of Yountville would someday blossom into a fullblown love affair. “This is a town that you can get your arms around.” Twenty years ago she did just that. With the opening of her now famous art gallery, RAS Galleries, Ronda has embraced her community and graced it with one of its most successful and admired businesses. It was her passion for art, and glass in particular, that moved Ms. Schaer to open a gallery. “I have always been drawn to glass.” But it was the work of American glass artists that really captured her heart. Representing more than two hundred American artists, the gallery has become one of the premiere venues in which to experience the drama, imagery and vision of this artistic medium. The gallery also features the work of some extremely gifted fine artists, with original oil paintings from artists throughout California and the Pacific Northwest, as well as the Eastern Seaboard and point in between. The whimsical chefs of ceramic artist, Cynthia Hipkiss are also a favorite of collectors. Says Ronda, “I created RAsgalleries with a singular focus on Original American Art, primarily Art Glass, my personal passion. And I’m proud that after twenty years in the same Yountville, Napa Valley location, the passion remains.” RASgalleries is located at 6540 Washington Street, next to Bouchon in Yountville and is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesday by appointment. Phone (707) 944-9211.

Celebrations will occur at both the Oakville Estate as well as the Geyserville Estate, where guests will be able to get a first-taste of the newly released vintage, yet to hit the market. The 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and refined wine that develops beautifully in the glass to reveal multilayered nuances of aromas. In addition to wine tastings, there will also be tastings from top local chefs, including Ken Frank of The Westin Verasa and La Toque Restaurant, Steven Barber of Fish Story, Donna Scala of Bistro Don Giovanni, Nash Cognetti of Tra Vigne and Joe Ray of Barbers Q and Ken Frank.

For tickets and for more information, visit www.silveroak.com.

Silver Oak Cellars was co-founded in 1972 by Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer. Dedicated exclusively to producing Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged and drinkable upon release, the winery makes two wines at two separate facilities: Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at its winery in Oakville and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at the winery in Geyserville, Sonoma County. Today, Silver Oak Cellars is run by founder Raymond Duncan’s two sons, David and Tim Duncan, who adhere to the principle of continuous improvement and the high standards of quality that Justin and Ray established so many years ago.

Welcome to

CALISTOGA
Napa Valley’s top-value Cabernet blends. Year after year the popular blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah has received 90 points or above from the critics. The “red feasting wine,” as Maximus is affectionately referred to on the label, demonstrates owners Randy and Lisa Lynch’s commitment to making wine an integral part of entertaining with family and friends. This release event marks a very special occasion for Bennett Lane Winery with their first-ever release of their Lynch Family Vineyard Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon. The Lynch Family Vineyard is a 12-acre parcel situated on the home property of winery owners Randy and Lisa Lynch, and is located near the Calistoga winery at the base of Mt. St. Helena. This wine marks both the first single vineyard Cabernet bottling for the winery in addition to being their first wine bottled under the new Calistoga AVA. “The Calistoga AVA was a long-time coming, and it is such a joy for us to be able to taste the fruit of our own vineyard in the bottle,” says Randy Lynch. Calistoga received American Viticultural Area (AVA) approval in 2009 after a six-year campaign to be rightfully recognized as a distinct wine-growing area. The position of Calistoga at the northern end of Napa Valley at the base of Mt. St. Helena has the unique characteristic of mostly volcanic soil types ranging from rocky hillside loams to clay silt near the valley floor, and warmer overall daytime temperatures than most of Napa Valley, balanced with cool evening temperatures. Bennett Lane’s wines are crafted to be approachable, yet complex – or what Owner Randy Lynch calls “the best of both worlds, meaning you can drink them today, but they are structured enough to cellar for several years. My goal is for us to make consistent wines – both in quality and taste – from year to year, so that consumers can trust Bennett Lane wines,” he says. The tasting flight at Bennett Lane is $10 and includes four of Bennett Lane’s wines, the Cabernet, Reserve Chardonnay, Maximus and Merlot. Put Bennett Lane on your short-list of must-visit tasting rooms as the production is small and the Cabernets sell out quickly. Visiting Bennett Lane affords tasters another rarity with a small winery

So Venture Off the Beaten Path to Bennett Lane Winery for a Taste of Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Lovers will race to Bennett Lane for a Sneak Peek of the 2008 Vintage – February 5th and 6th
The first weekend in February is all about Cabernet in the valley as wineries up and down Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail release their luscious Napa Cabernets. One of our favorite stops every year is Bennett Lane Winery in Calistoga, known for its succulent Cabernets, their signature “feasting wine,” Maximus, and for one of the finest visitor experiences in the valley. Founded by Randy and Lisa Lynch in 2003, Bennett Lane’s off-the-beaten track location and friendly tasting room offers visitors to Napa a “secret gem” and a great way to learn about – and try – some of Napa’s best wines in a more intimate setting. On February 5th and 6th, Bennett Lane’s 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($55), 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($95) and 2008 Lynch Family Vineyard Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon ($120) will be released and poured for visitors at the tasting room – a special opportunity to get a sneak peek and taste the wines before they are released to the public later this year. Bennett Lane’s Cabs have continuously garnered critical acclaim. Just last year, the 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and the Napa Valley Syrah were awarded 92 points by the Wine Spectator. The Cabernet recently received a top score of 94 by wine critic Robert Whitley, adding “The Bennett Lane Cabs have always impressed…” Additionally, Bennett Lane’s Maximus is widely recognized as one of

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

Chef Charlie Palmer’s Pigs & Pinot Epicurean Benefit
Featuring culinary stars and wine experts from across the country
On Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19, Chef Charlie Palmer will once again bring together culinary and wine elites from around the country to participate in the sixth annual Pigs & Pinot weekend (www.pigsandpinot.com). Held at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg, located in tranquil Healdsburg where three of California’s most important wine producing regions unite – Dry Creek, Russian River and Alexander Valley – this celebration has become a tradition amongst pork and wine enthusiasts who are eager to experience the creations of more than 60 wineries and 10 chefs who showcase their talents each year. The 2011 Pigs & Pinot event will feature an exciting line-up of food and wine seminars, tastings and cook-offs, and all proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength® and local Healdsburg education, including The Healdsburg Education Foundation, St. John School and The Healdsburg School. And, to continue the support of the local community, Chef Palmer is once again raising two suckling pigs which he has personally selected and is nurturing in the gardens of Quivira Vineyards, a Biodynamic® vineyard, closely cared for by Quivira’s head gardener Andrew Beedy. The pigs are fed Dry Creek Kitchen vegetable trimmings as well as spent grain and barley from nearby Bear Republic Brewing Company and finished in the European style, with an acorn diet to produce a richer marbling and slightly sweet fat. The meat will be served as part of the chef’s pairing course during the Pigs & Pinot gala dinner.

Saturday, March 20
• Tournament of the Pig – 10:30am-12:30pm Charlie Palmer and three of his guest chefs will be divided into two talent-packed teams. These teams will be given three different pork products which they will use to craft three creative dishes, along with ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. The winning team will be determined by a panel of prestigious porkloving judges. Of course the audience will be supplied with tastings too. • Ultimate Pinot Smack Down – 1-3pm Time for wine experts to steal the show and demonstrate their Pinot persuasion skills. Join Master Sommeliers Keith Goldston, Fred Dame, Drew Hendricks, and Aureole Las Vegas Wine Director William Sherer for this exciting march-madness inspired wine seminar. Each Master Sommelier enters the room with his personal selection of four Pinot Noirs from around the world and proceeds to “sell” his favorites in this lively head-to-head pitch contest including blind tastings where the audience chooses the winner. • Pigs & Pinot Gala – 7pm Saturday evening’s elegant Pigs & Pinot Gala features a delectable five-course dinner at Hotel Healdsburg’s Dry Creek Kitchen. As a collaborative offering, each course features a signature creation from Palmer and his guest chefs including “Top Chef” brothers Michael and Bryan Voltaggio and Nancy Oakes of Boulevard and Prospect. Every course will be paired with two limited-production Pinot Noirs from highly acclaimed wineries including, Domaine Parent, Merry Edwards, Rochioli and Woodenhead. Pigs & Pinot Late Night is a late evening celebration following the gala with after-dinner drinks and dessert in the Hotel Healdsburg lobby. All Pigs & Pinot celebrants are welcome to attend. Tickets to this event quickly sell out. For more information, tickets or details about package prices with accomodations, visit www.PigsandPinot.com.

THE 2010 PIGS & PINOT WEEKEND LINE-UP Friday, March 19
• Taste of Pigs & Pinot – 12pm To kick off the weekend fun, guests are invited to experience 60 highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir wines, all contenders in the Pinot Cup competition. These hand-picked Pinot Noirs, hailing from California and beyond, face a distinguished judging panel in a blind tasting. This year’s panel is made up of top wine media personalities such as Dan Berger, national wine columnist and Leslie Sbrocco, epicurean author and television host. The winner and runner up of the prestigious Pinot Cup will be revealed at the end of the night. Wine tastings are served alongside a selection of pork dishes created by Chef Palmer and Dry Creek Kitchen Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette, guest chefs, and many local Healdsburg restaurants including Cyrus, Zin, Barndiva and Healdsburg Charcuterie & Café.

SONOMA COUNTY | WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK

New Season, New Reasons to Visit Sonoma County
Those in need of an after-holiday escape will find new wine and food experiences, soothing spa treatments and new tours and attractions in the land of plenty, Sonoma County. Winter in Sonoma wine country makes for a dramatic backdrop for more than 300 wineries, 40 spas and 50-plus miles of Pacific coastline that makes Sonoma County America’s premier wine, spa and coastal destination. Find out more, or book your wine country trip today at www.sonomacounty.com. Paul family has traded apples for grapes and is now a family owned and operated winery. Led by owners Art and Barbara Paul, three generations participate in the cultivation of premium grapes on their Sonoma County estate. The bocce ball court is open and available during their tasting room hours, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day except Tuesday.

Siduri Winery Moves to New, Larger Home
Siduri Winery has gained a cult following for its ultra-premium, single-vineyard Pinot Noir, and its surprising, low-key location in a Santa Rosa business park. The winery has upgraded its location by moving across the street to a larger warehouse, but the same un-stuffy, casual atmosphere and incredible wines remain. The new facility at 981 Airway Court allows for more visitors during the wineries special open house events, in addition to increasing storage for producing their many small lots of single-vineyard Pinot Noir and other wines produced under the Novy label. Siduri is open for tasting daily by appointment only from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

WINERIES A Landmark Presidential Holiday Toast
President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama toasted the holidays with Landmark Vineyards Overlook Chardonnay. The First Lady chose the winery because of its history. Damaris Deere Ford, great-great granddaughter of John Deere, started the winery in 1974.

Dutton-Goldfield Opens New Tasting Room
Dutton-Goldfield has opened its own tasting room in Sebastopol, next to Red Car Wine. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the cozy living room complete with fireplace warms guests who stop in to taste fabulous wines. Speaking of fabulous wines, Dan Goldfield was named Sunset magazine’s winemaker of the year. Sonoma County’s Bob Cabral of Williams Selyem was also in the running for the top honor.

TOURS – New Ways to Get a Close-Up View of Sonoma County
Getaway Adventures, one of the area’s most trusted touring companies, offers two new ways to see Sonoma County:

Velo 'N Vino Tour
The perfect way for cycling enthusiasts to explore Sonoma Wine Country. Meet in the early morning and embark on a 30-40 mile morning ride, passing through Dry Creek Valley up to Asti and then south through the scenic Alexander Valley. When the ride is over, Getaway Adventures will give cyclists a lift to the Dry Creek General Store to refuel with a delicious lunch and then visit two or three wineries by van. The day finishes around 3:30 p.m.

New Urban Winery Village
A new urban winery village on Cleveland Avenue in Santa Rosa welcomes visitors for daily wine tasting without having to leave the city limits. The Santa Rosa Vintners Square is made up of four small, boutique wineries that include D’Argenzio Winery, Sheldon Wines, Krutz Family Cellars and MJ Lords Winery. The square also includes Squires Cigar Shop and Lounge, art galleries and a patio area that is both dog and bike-friendly. All of the wineries and businesses are open daily and visitors should check the Santa Rosa Vintners Square website often for events and specials.

Farm Fresh Bike Tour
This ride is focused on foodies and shows guests not only the gorgeous vineyards and wineries, but also Sonoma County’s abundant local produce and artisan food producers. The morning starts with a quick bike fitting and safety talk, then it’s off to Dry Creek Valley. Typical stops may include organic wineries with gardens, or livestock such as Quivira or Preston. Tours may also include a stop at the Dry Creek Olive Company, Dry Creek Peach & Produce, or Love Farms. The group enjoys a lunch featuring local products at a scenic stop. The ride covers about 15-25 miles, which is perfect for beginners and intermediate riders alike. The tour finishes around 3:30 p.m. Getaway Adventures, 800- 499-2453

Wineyard at Santa Rosa Vintners Square
The Wineyard is just “uptown from downtown,” in Santa Rosa. Experience the re-emerging Santa Rosa Wine District, where vintners collaborate for a direct-to-consumer experience. The Wineyard collective tasting room will accommodate up to 10 boutique wineries. The Wineyard will also include an educational component. Topics include the Santa Rosa Junior College Shone Farm Winery and farm products. The venue will also promote the abundant Sonoma County agri-tourism that the community has to offer.

Zip Along for a Memory of a Lifetime.
Enjoy this unique course that features a zipline more than 800 feet long. Walk sky bridges high in the air. Marvel at panoramic forest views and deep ravines. Discover the world-famous California coastal redwoods in a way you never imagined. Sonoma Canopy Tours offers high adventure that’s green, family-friendly and educational. For a free Sonoma County visitors guide or information, visit www.sonomacounty.com or call 1-800-576-6662.

Graton Cellars Adds Bocce Ball Courts
In addition to tasting some delicious hand-crafted Sonoma County wines, Graton Cellars also offers guests a chance to picnic and play bocce ball on their gorgeous property. Once a destination for families in search of Gravenstein apples, the

Tasting Room of the Week:

Ledson Winery
by Brendan Controy
If one is in search of a winery that has exceptional wine, a gourmet Marketplace and a truly breathtaking facility, Ledson Winery is the place to go. Located in Sonoma Valley, the aesthetic beauty of Ledson is nothing short of outstanding. The 16,000square-foot castle has an opened, welcoming feel as one walks through a line of grape vines to arrive at a centrally located fountain and garden. Upon entering, one immediately discovers a grand staircase which could have come directly out of a Hollywood movie as well as a trophy room dedicated to holding Ledson’s numerous awards. The true elegance of the tasting room itself is astounding. One may conclude just by witnessing the craftsmanship and intricate designs etched into the structure as well as the diverse patterns inlaid in the hardwood floor of every room that much time and dedication went into its creation. Most of the structural design was originally envisioned and conceived by the winemaker, Steve Ledson, himself. As the concept started to become a reality, he began to actually tape sketches of potential designs to his bedroom ceiling so that he would dream about the design and detail of the building. That is the quite literal approach for working 24/7. The bricks of the building themselves were custom designed with the exact shades of brown and gray to match the colors of Hood Mountain located directly behind the facility. Ledson wanted to share the beauty of Hood Mountain without overshadowing it. Ledson also wants to create a certain sense of nostalgia in the wine industry by continually reminding people of its humble beginnings. Some of its most well known and popular vineyards that source grapes to them are also some of the oldest. In addition to the fact that they produce excellent wine, they also represent feelings of heritage and belonging with the land as an autonomous entity. Ledson’s general wine philosophy is to “make a bottle of wine for everyone on this earth for each price point and palate.” With its 40,000 annual case production and an unprecedented 86 different wines (about 30 of which are served on the tasting menu) it is no wonder that they can find a wine for every potential buyer. Sold exclusively at the Ledson Hotel or the estate itself, Ledson’s wines are extremely hard to come by outside of one of their four wine clubs. The grapes are sourced from a whopping 60 vineyards that stretch out over ten counties in California. This is done in order to show the consumer the very distinct differences between different growing areas and the magic that can be created by harnessing their greatest strengths. If one wishes to enjoy both Ledson and all of the different wonders imbedded within Sonoma Valley, there are some specific events that cannot be missed. The first is known as the 10th Annual Sonoma Valley Olive Season Festival. For $20, one will receive a tasting passport (which is valid until February 28th) allowing the ability to go to different wineries and experience a multitude of different olive oils. Ledson has a wide selection of olive oils which includes among others Blood Orange, Meyer Lemon and Rosemary. In addition to this fact, at Ledson one will receive an upgraded tasting for participating in the event changing the standard tasting of six wines to a very satisfying nine different wines. Another event to consider is the 21st Annual Savor Sonoma Valley. For $55, one receives a pass for an entire weekend of complementary wine tasting. With more than 20 wineries participating, it is no easy feat to decide on which wineries to attend, but that all part of the fun. For more information on both of these events, visit ledonwinery.com under the events section. For more information, visit ledsonwinery.com and don’t forget to follow Ledson on Facebook

Anderson Valley Winegrowers Host Annual

International Alsace Varietals Festival
Expanding Event Showcases Five Varietals and Varying Wine Styles from Around The World
For the sixth year, the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association (AVWA) will present the International Alsace Varietals Festival – the only U.S. event to focus on the mostly dry, white wines from Alsace, France. The 2011 event will be held February 12-13, in Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley – a region also known for its aromatic Gewürztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris. Producers will pour five highlighted varietals – Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat – during the two-day celebration. Festival events include a technical conference, a grand tasting, a winemaker dinner and winery open houses. “The continued success of this event is proof of increased interest in these varietals among both consumers and the trade,” said Milla Handley, winemaker at Handley Cellars, who has been producing Alsace-style white wines for almost 30 years. “With their food friendliness, lower alcohols and reasonable price tags, these wines have a lot going for them and it’s about time people took notice.” The technical conference on Saturday morning will examine the differences in Old World and New World techniques and trends in winemaking and grape growing for these varietals, with talks by industry experts and winemakers from France, Germany and various regions of the United States. The Alsace Varietals Grand Tasting on Saturday afternoon will showcase aromatic white wines from approximately 35 producers. Live music and fantastic small bites, including fresh oysters, will be paired with the wines. Participating wineries include: Alderbrook Winery, Bowers Harbor Vineyards, Breggo Cellars, Brooks, Chateau Grand Traverse, Claiborne & Churchill, Claudia Springs Winery, Domaine Charles Baur, Domaine Shlumberger, Domaine Weinbach, Esterlina Vineyards & Winery, Foris Vineyards Winery, Foursight, Graziano Family of Wines, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards, Hagafen Cellars, Handley Cellars, Husch Vineyards, Lazy Creek Vineyards, Londer Vineyards, McFadden Farm, Navarro Vineyards, NY Finger Lakes Wine Alliance,New Zealand Winegrowers Assn., Phillips Hill, Philo Ridge Vineyards, Robert Sinskey Vineyards, Thomas Fogarty Winery, Toulouse Vineyards, Valkenberg, Zina Hyde Cunningham and more... The winemaker dinner in the elegant private dining room at Scharffenberger Cellars on Saturday evening will focus on Alsace-style wines (including Pinot Noir) produced by participating wineries. The gourmet, sit-down meal will offer attendees a chance to meet and get to know each winemaker and taste their favorite wines. On Sunday, local wineries will host open houses that include live music, vineyard tours, food and wine pairings, and more. A detailed schedule for the weekend and additional information about the event 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) 895WINE. Tickets are available for sale on 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 $180,000 – 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.

Barrel Tasting Weekend takes place Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20, from noon to 4:30 p.m. each day at more than 30 participating Livermore Valley wineries located in the East Bay Area of Northern California (less than one hour from San Francisco) Cost for the event is $30 per person when purchased online at www.LVwine.org by March 18. $35 per person at any participating

winery during the event. Price includes a take home glass with the Livermore Valley Wine Country Logo, two days of barrel tasting at each participating winery on Saturday and Sunday, special activities and wine discounts, and a Barrel Tasting Weekend map which includes all wineries that are participating in the Barrel Tasting weekend.

Vine Hill Winery Receives Coveted CCOF Organic Certification
by Fred Gillaspy
When vineyard manager, Rachel Ormes first arrived at Vine Hill Winery, located in the very heart of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking Monterey Bay, she immediately saw the organic potential that the winery’s property possessed to contribute to ecosystem health. So began the extensive process and dedicated effort that has now reaped the prestigious reward of receiving organic certification for the winery and its estate vineyards by the highly regarded agency, California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). In her focused organic management program at Vine Hill, Rachel integrates a number of non-ecothreatening practices, including integration of an intensive covercropping and green manure program that increases the fertility of the soil; a pest program where insect populations are brought into balance by providing beneficial insect habitat in and around the vineyard; and use of compost teas and biofungicides to help deal with the everpresent fungal pressure that typically prevails with canopy management in coastal vineyards like those at Vine Hill. She does have some concerns about some people’s perceptions of organic

winemaking. “Some wine drinkers associate organic wine with being bad wine . . . and this simply isn’t true. Most folks aren’t aware of the fact that the only difference between ‘organic wine’ and ‘wines made from organic grapes’ is the addition of sulfur dioxide as a preservative. Without the addition of sulfur dioxide, wine readily oxidizes and this is what makes wines go “bad.” Rachel also feels strongly about the significance of organic farming practices and how some consumers perceive the concept of organic farming in general. “There are a number of

misconceptions about the differences between organic, sustainable, biodynamic and conventional farming practices. I think it’s important for the organic consumer to understand that there is sustainable farming – and then there is organic farming – and they are not always the same thing,” she points out. What does this all mean to wine drinkers? The 2010 vintage of Vine Hill’s Pinot Noir and Syrah will be their first estate wines labeled “made from organic grapes.” And aside from being a powerful acknowledgement of Vine Hill’s commitment to the practice of organic farming and its dedication to ecological stewardship, as well as an increasing awareness and acceptance of the benefits of organically grown products, it’s also an assurance that the wine is made under the highest level of quality standards. And that means that there’s something very special to look forward to from Vine Hill when the winery’s first releases of organically grown estate Pinot Noir and Syrah are released in late 2012!

RACHEL ORMES

Vine Hill Winery is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains at 2300 Jarvis Road, Santa Cruz. The tasting room is open to the public on the third weekend of each month from noon to 5pm and for special events and selected holidays. Tastings, winery and vineyard tours by appointment for groups of 10 or more are also available. For more information and directions, visit vinehillwinery.com or call (831) 427-0436.
