INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

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

BY JOSH STEIN

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

Excellence in Everything They Do
Founded in 1973 as a vineyard company, Sonoma-Cutrer has a long-standing reputation of quality and craftsmanship. Since their inaugural vintage in 1981, Sonoma-Cutrer has embodied the best in world-class Chardonnay. Today, the winery has expanded to include rich, Russian River Valley Pinot Noir to its portfolio. The wines of Sonoma-Cutrer express an extraordinary sense of place. Crafted using traditional Burgundian methods, each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reflects the unique characteristics of the terrior from which it originated. The iconic yellow color stems from sunlight cascading onto the ripening grapes, the historic hop kiln reflects in the label design. This sense of place, blended with their meticulous Grand Cru philosophy, gives rise to Sonoma-Cutrer’s commitment to excellence and their passion for producing worldclass Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Sonoma-Cutrer’s commitment to excellence doesn’t stop at wine. A visit to their property shows that excellence follows through to everything they do. In 2010, when Sonoma-Cutrer first opened up their property for public tours and tastings, they set the stage for tasting room excellence. The tasting room opens to a beautiful terrace that overlooks two championship croquet courts where guests are encouraged to pick up a mallet and play a round with their friends. An extensive vineyard tour takes you by tram through the vineyard showcasing Sonoma-Cutrer’s 400 acres of meticulously cared for Chardonnay vines. A visit into the cellar shows that no detail is overlooked and guests can experience firsthand the amazing

wines during a sit-down tasting. All wine tastings are hosted by a wine educator that guides you through a flight of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Sonoma-Cutrer hosts “Chardonnay and Croquet” monthly from April through September. These monthly events are limited to sixteen players broken up into teams that compete in a friendly roundrobin tournament to become croquet champions for the day. After the games conclude, the guests enjoy a picnic lunch on the terrace to relax, unwind and enjoy the company of their fellow players. Sonoma-Cutrer invites you to visit and enjoy a sit-down tasting ($10) or a unique vineyard and cellar tour ($25). Tours are by appointment and can be made by calling the tasting room at (707) 237-3489 or booking online at sonomacutrer.com. Remember to leave yourself a little time to pick up a mallet and play the wickets before you leave!

JUdd’s HiLL – Expect the Unexpected
BY MIKE HYLAND

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by advance appointment 2332 Silverado Trail, Napa, CA 94558 (707) 255-2332 | www.juddshill.com

I would guess that all of the wine club members as well as the many visitors to the winery on the Silverado Trail in Napa know one thing for sure about Judd’s Hill – always expect the unexpected. For example, the Judd’s Hill Valentine’s Day celebration will not take place on February 14 as you would expect. They decided to make that date even more special by celebrating ten days later on February 24, and calling it their Post Valentine’s Day Celebration and Pick-Up Party. Crazy? Maybe, but for winemaker Judd Finkelstein (hence the name) and his wife Holly, that’s the way they like to do things, and apparently, so do all of their guests. The event runs from noon to 2:30 p.m. with “great food, some form of live entertainment, lots of surprises and, of course, massage therapists who will offer neck and shoulder massages.” Now, what other winery offers that? The event is free for wine club members and $25 per person for non club members and takes place on the crush pad next to the vineyard. Reservations are recommended by calling the tasting room at (707) 255-2332, and do you really think it is an accident that the phone number and the physical address are somewhat alike? The winery is located at 2332 Silverado Trail in Napa. They are open by appointment only every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Owner Judd Finkelstein was raised in Napa Valley. His college credits include the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Telecommunications at Arizona State where he earned a bachelor’s degree in television production. If you’ve been to the Judd’s Hill website (and if not, you should) then you have already seen some of Judd’s “Wine Booty” shows starring Judd and The Pirate. While it seems a little zany, the shows are also interesting and informative. So, whether it be pirates or magic or Hawaiian luau’s, or even playing in his Napa Valley ukulele club with The Wine Country Flea Jumpers, Judd is right at home having a good time. In addition to having a lot of fun, Judd is very serious about his winemaking. He grew up in the wine industry and learned the art of winemaking from his dad, Art. “Our idea is that great fruit makes fine wine and we want that fact to show through,” says Judd. “We use oak subtly, keep the alcohols at moderate levels and blend carefully, among other techniques. We let the grape shine, which results in wonderful wines of true varietal characteristics.” And, with names like Magic, Presitdigitation and Burke’s Blazing Barbecue Old Vine Zinfandel, among others, you know that Judd’s Hill is a fun place to sample wine. Give them a call to schedule a tasting appointment or to RSVP for one of their events and experience the magic of this boutique, family-run Napa Valley winery for yourself.

taste route 116: “sweet 116”
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the collection of wine tasting rooms that formed “Taste Route 116” will host Sweet 116 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 16.

Guests are invited to enjoy decadent dessert treats and delicious wines at seven wineries along Highway 116 near Sebastopol. Tickets are $30 per person, $25 for wine club members, and $10 for designated drivers (glass not included for DDs).

Taking Greatness and Making It Even Better!
BY JOSH STEIN

odette estate winery Open by appointment 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily 5998 Silverado Trail Napa, CA 94558 (707) 224-7533 | www.odetteestate.com

The PlumpJack Group is well known in wine country and beyond for their inspired and innovative properties dispersed across the hospitality channel. Owned by investor and philanthropist Gordon Getty and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, PlumpJack continues to grow with the inception of Odette Estate Winery. Acquired in early 2012, the forty-five acre parcel sits just off the iconic Silverado Trail in the renowned Stags Leap District. The name “Odette” was chosen for her importance in both literature and history, and looks to embody the strong feminine character of these women, as well as the region itself. The Stags Leap District boasts international notoriety serving as the source of the Cabernet Sauvignon that placed first in the famed “’76 Judgment of Paris” tasting. Paying tribute to the grand upset, the name “Odette” also takes a light jab at infamous event as the name of one of the French judges who demanded her ballot back upon being informed the Napa Valley wine had won was also named “Odette.” They’re not named the PlumpJack Group because of a lack of humor or long-term memory. The property is home to both a sophisticated tasting room, as well as an 18,000square-foot cave system spiraling deep into the hillside, beneath the stunning vine covered ridgeline. The already organically farmed estate will be looking to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification upon completion of the winery facility in 2013 guaranteeing sustainable practices and energy conservation throughout the estate. The Odette Estate looks to serve as a symbol of both past and future greatness within the region. Pulling off of the Trail and driving down, immediately losing the sight of the roadway, the tasting room seems to rise from the surrounding vines, a modernist, almost New England contrast to the ordered rows of green and brown. Its slate-dark

and white trim lines help to demarcate the salon ambiance inside and the wines awaiting tasting. There is ample room inside to taste as well as tables with umbrellas and several patios outside. Pre-chilled bottles are also available for purchase to enjoy with complementary vintnerlevel glassware. Winemaker Jeff Owens, who has been with the organization since 2008, previously served as assistant winemaker at PlumpJack and Cade Estate wineries, is now in charge of the winemaking at Odette Estate. Owens’ winemaking duties include both the productions of the Odette Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and the Adaptation line of wines, showcasing a range of Napa vineyard sources. The Odette Estate wines will not be released until 2014, but fans are able to get their hands on the Adaptation wines that are currently on offer in the

tasting room and include a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay, with Petite Sirah and Pinotage joining the line up later this summer. Also being poured are select PlumpJack and Cade wines allowing guests to indulge in a diverse selection of wines from the Napa Valley. The overall experience at Odette Estate is one of care and comfort of the land, of its global historical significance, and of the customer’s enjoyment of the wines today and in the future. The Stags Leap District brings to the table a terroir well-known for its elegant power; the PlumpJack Group brings a multi-decade, multi-winery track record of success in the Valley and beyond. The combination is a reminder once again that many great wines and winery experiences await by driving parallel to Highway 29 but on the “road less traveled,” the Silverado Trail. You’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!

Winegrowers, winemakers and wine enthusiasts combine to form the membership. The common focus is the preservation and recognition of Zinfandel as America’s heritage wine. ZAP’s embership includes approximately 250 winery-members, 4,000 advocate members and 100 associate members. Zinfandel is considered America’s heritage wine because of its rich history; plantings of Zinfandel in California represent some of the oldest vineyard plantings in the world – adding further to Zinfandel’s critically important role in the world of fine wine. While the Zinfandel grape originated in Europe, the Zinfandel name is truly American – the earliest documented use of the name was when a Boston nursery owner advertised Zinfandel for sale in 1832. Zinfandel was introduced to California during the Gold Rush at some point between 1852 and 1857 and became widely planted because it

thrived so well in the state’s climate and soil. Today, Zinfandel is the third leading wine grape variety in California, with nearly 50,000 acres planted. Zinfandel Advocates & Producers welcomes “Advocate” members as well as wineries. ZAP members have unique opportunities to explore Zinfandel, meet other Zinfandel enthusiasts and discover new wineries. An annual membership is $44 (for two people) and includes numerous special and behind-the-scenes events and resources. Members have early entrance to the Grand Zinfandel Tasting at ZAP’s Zinfandel Festival, plus winemaker workshops, as well as ticket savings for the Festival and other events, including cruises, invitations with special pricing to wine events, a seasonal eNewsletter with news articles, member stories, recipes, discounts and special offers at selected wineries and more.

Only available at winery. Not applicable online. O er expires 06/30/2013.

ReFLeCtiNg tHe good LiFe
Artist Thomas Arvid comes to Napa Valley
BY SARAH DOYLE

There was something about the color red that appealed to Atlanta-based artist Thomas Arvid when he decided to choose a focus for his artwork. While his first oil paintings materialized images of CocaCola® cans, Converse® tennis shoes, and Radio Flyer® wagons, it was Arvid’s still life of a red wine bottle that caught the public’s eye. The wine painting was purchased before it was done drying on the easel. So did the next one. And the one after that. It was then that Arvid knew he was on to something. “Wine is great subject because people are familiar with it. They really connect to it,” says the self-taught Arvid who was recently named one of the top “25 Artists You Should Know” by U.S. Art magazine. “My paintings speak to the special moments that people share when they share wine.” Today, Arvid’s work focuses primarily on still lifes of wine bottles, wine glasses, corks and corkscrews, all of which are created with startling precision. Even the smallest detail gets significant attention, from the delicately beaded bubbles lining each glass of wine, to the minuscule pits in every cork. More than 50 art galleries represent his larger-than-life paintings in the United States, Canada and Japan, including Thomas Arvid Fine Art Gallery in Marietta, Ga., which is considered one of the most successful boutique art publishing companies in the country. Currently, collectors are willing to wait years for one of his originals. “It’s amazing that my collectors find a personal fulfillment in my work,” marvels Arvid. “Especially when I’m just doing what I love.” The artist’s first museum exhibition, “Arvid: Reflecting the Good Life,” appeared this past November/December 2012 at The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in metroAtlanta and featured a retrospective of Arvid’s body of work.

Thomas Arvid

meet the artist
On February 1, 2013, North Bay Gallery in Yountville will present a wine and cheese reception with Thomas Arvid from 5 to 7 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the artist and view a selection of his latest wine-themed work. “Thomas is a remarkable artist,” says North Bay Gallery owner, Marc Eremian. “He has an incredible gift and I consider him to be the pre-eminent painter of all things wine. I’m always amazed by his ability to capture the most subtle reflections through his hyper-realistic style and composition.” If you haven’t been to the North Bay Gallery in V Marketplace, Arvid’s opening is the perfect opportunity to visit this multimedia art house, which exhibits an eclectic array of bronze sculptures, metal art, paintings, handcrafted jewelry and art glass created by North American artists. (A second location exists in Sonoma’s downtown square.)

On February 2, 2013, from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Thomas Arvid will make his annual appearance at Silver Oak Cellars in Napa Valley as part of the winery’s biannual Release Day event. The artist is a great admirer of Silver Oak’s wines and has captured many of the winery’s iconic images on canvas throughout his painting career. Guests can observe Arvid paint a work-inprogress while enjoying Silver Oak’s newly released 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. Live music and artisan small bites prepared by the area’s best restaurants will also be on hand. (For more information on this event, visit www.silveroak.com/ life-is-a-cabernet/release-day.)

WCtW: What’s your favorite overall varietal? Rm: I am a Pinot guy, sometimes a Zin, I do like

Rm: J’s Bubble Room WCtW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? Rm: Korbel if they want to learn about bubbles, Benzinger for still wines. WCtW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? Rm: Littorai, amazing high-end tour and very detailed … not to mention delicious wine!

WCtW: What’s the best wine country picnic spot? Rm: Gustafson! Bennet Lane for sure! Lambert Bridge … argh, so many!

Napa; Pick up lunch at Genova’s Deli; Round Pond Winery and Olive Oil Mill; Rutherford Hill Winery for wine tasting and picnic lunch overlooking the valley; cave tour at Schramsberg Winery; Robert Biale Vineyards – wrap the day up with some of the best Zin in the industry! WCtW: What’s your favorite overall varietal and where do you like to go to taste it? tJ: Living in the Napa Valley, there is only one logical choice here: Cabernet Sauvignon! Silver Oak Cellars,: the “original cult winery,” 100% American oak, great stuff! WCtW: What winery do you think has the best “over-the-top” experience to offer visitors? tJ: Palmaz Winery: This experience will be a memory for life … must do.

WCtW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? LAd: If they are newcomers to the world of wine I might send them to Beringer for one of the educational tastings with Dean, who is so fabulous. He makes it all so accessible, easy, and enjoyable. If my guests are budding collectors, I might send them to Shafer, where they do a more formal educational tasting. WCtW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? LAd: I think Grgich Hills is an excellent example of organic wines that are absolutely superb. I like their whites as much as their reds. WCtW: Who has your favorite cave tour? LAd: My favorite cave/cellar tour is at Del Dotto winery; but I may be influenced by their Cab Franc. WCtW: What areas and/or wineries would you recommend that are not part of the popular wine country? LAd: I think that the Glen Ellen area is still a bit of a hidden gem, it’s so rural and peaceful, and beautiful.

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

korbel champagne cellars - the toast of the inaugural luncheon
eighth inauguration for America's Premium Champagne
When Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term as the 44th President of the United States, this historic event was once again toasted with flutes of Korbel California Champagne. On January 21st, immediately following the public Swearing-In Ceremony, Korbel Russian River Valley Natural Champagne – featuring a commemorative neck label including the Inaugural Seal – was served at the Inaugural Luncheon and raised in toasts to the Obama administration. 2013 marks the eighth Presidential Inauguration in which Korbel Champagne Cellars, producer of America’s favorite premium Champagne, has been selected for this prestigious honor. This Korbel tradition began in 1985 with the inauguration of Ronald Reagan and has continued through the inaugurations of George Bush in 1989, Bill Clinton in 1993 and 1997, George W. Bush in 2001 and 2005, and Barack Obama’s first term in 2009. Since 1897, the Inaugural Luncheon has been one of the most exclusive events of the Presidential Inauguration. In addition to the President, Vice President and members of their families, the 200 invited guests include the senior members of the Senate and House of Representatives, Supreme Court Justices, members of the President's Cabinet and former Presidents. Reflecting the theme of the 2013 Inauguration, “Faith in America’s Future” celebrating the 150th anniversary of the placement of the Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol dome, this year’s Inaugural Luncheon will include speeches, gift presentations from the JCCIC and – of course – several toasts. “Such an historic celebration deserves to be toasted with American Champagne with roots in our country’s most memorable occasions,” observed Gary Heck, President and Owner of Korbel Champagne Cellars. “We are honored that Korbel – celebrating its 130th anniversary – will once again be on hand for this prestigious tradition.” Established in 1882 in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces the United States’ most popular methode champenoise Champagne. Owned and managed by the Heck family since 1954, Korbel currently makes eleven Champagnes and a limited amount of still wine.

ACACiA viNeYARd
BY MIKE HYLAND

Open by appointment only Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. 2750 Las Amigas Road, Napa CA 94559 (707) 226-9991 | www.acaciavineyard.com

If you love great Chardonnay or Pinot Noir and you have not yet made it to Acacia Vineyard in the Carneros region of Napa, do yourself a favor and stop in sometime soon. Carneros is known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and Acacia offers eight unique Chardonnays and eight distinctive Pinot Noirs, a taste for everyone. Off the beaten path – but one of the closest Napa wineries to San Francisco – Acacia is a jewel of the Carneros region. Situated on a hill overlooking San Pablo Bay, with views of Mount Tamalpais and surrounded by some 150 acres of vineyards, Acacia looks and feels like paradise, even in the wintertime. With an intimate tasting room and an extremely knowledgeable staff, there is always something cooking in Acacia’s little corner of the world. Whether it be a crab or lobster boil, a Mardi Gras party, a Mother’s Day brunch or just a hike in the vineyards, there are events going on each month. For big groups, the hospitality staff opens the Tank Room, a large tasting area complete with fermentation tanks and barrels (hence the name). Acacia has been making its award-winning, single-vineyard wines since 1979. Utilizing the winery’s estate grapes, winemaker Matthew Glynn also sources fruit from such well-known Carneros and Russian River vineyards as Sangiacomo and Lone Tree. Acacia has the distinction of being one of the first California wineries to offer vineyarddesignate Pinot Noir. While Acacia makes a multitude of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, they are all limited productions – usually about 200 to 300 cases per varietal – and the only way you can get them is through the tasting room or by joining the wine club. In addition to the Chards and Pinots, Acacia produces a delicious Viognier and a refreshing rosé of Pinot Noir, perfect for summertime sipping. Long before the climate of the Carneros AVA was recognized as ideal for growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Acacia’s pioneering founders were convinced of it. Their goal in launching Acacia was to achieve a certain balance in Pinot Noir that, at the time, existed only in French wines. They wanted to craft a single-vineyard California Pinot Noir that was both complex and delicate – a wine that heightened the enjoyment of food, making everything just a little tastier. Today, that quality is what draws both aficionados and novices alike to Acacia wines. It also helped to put Carneros on the map, and it continues to inspire winemaking at Acacia after almost 35 year.

at Jessup cellars, it’s all about the experience
In a verdant valley full of wineries, vineyards and tasting rooms, the Jessup Cellars tasting room is something different. The wines are excellent, the people are friendly (while also being efficient and knowledgeable about their wines, art and hospitality in general). But there are some things you will find when you visit that set Jessup apart from the rest. As any staff member will proudly proclaim if asked, Jessup is “all about the experience.” Walk-in visitors are welcomed at the tasting bar, but for those seeking a more intimate occasion, the by-appointment semi-private tastings are the way to best enjoy the tasting room and staff. Taking place within Jessup’s art gallery, visitors get to enjoy a range of wines available only from the winery in a relaxed, no attitude environment. In fact, if you ask the right people around the Valley, you’ll hear the same response: it’s the staff at Jessup, their willingness to answer any question, their joy at getting to share what they love about the wines, which really makes the distinction. It is fair to say – perhaps even an understatement – to consider a visit to this charming tasting room with its fine wines, gracious wine country hospitality, collection of art, handsome décor and casual feel is a true treat for all of the senses. To be able to sit, sample their exceptional wines along with a bit of food in such a setting, where you learn in such a way that it feels as if you are simply absorbing knowledge instead of just being taught, is wonderful way to spend an hour or so here in a small town that is a beacon to wine lovers and gourmets from around the globe. Jessup Cellars is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last seated tasting at 5 p.m., reservations are needed for seated tastings) and is located at 6740 Washington Street, Yountville; (707) 944-8523.

The Redwood Cellar is a beautiful majestic stone building with 80 windows, a gabled roof and an impressive belvedere, located across from the picnic area. Step foot into the tasting room at Charles Krug Winery and travel back in time to 1862, when Charles Krug himself opened the first tasting room in California.

A Romantic Rendezvous for Your Sweetheart and You
A first encounter with the Candlelight Inn is a bit like “love at first sight”! As you approach the beautifully maintained and landscaped Tudor Mansion – built as a residence in 1929 – it appears to straddle Easum Drive, a modest residential area. The street – not far from Napa’s Town Center – ends as you park in the welcoming front courtyard. Right here, in the bustling epicenter of everything that makes the wine country so desirable, the luxurious ten-room inn sits on its own private, one-acre, secluded park. It is bordered by Napa Creek and nestled beneath towering redwoods. Here, a spacious pool/cabana is surrounded by meticulously landscaped flowering shrubs, bushes and rock gardens. Noticeable sounds are birds and rustling leaves. Originally designed for an active family’s enjoyment, Candlelight Inn is now a private retreat for discriminating visitors to the wine country. Many guests, who were smitten by that first impression, now return year after year to relax and renew their enjoyment of all the region offers. On each visit, there is more to do. In recent years, Napa has become a hub for worldrenowned chefs, and each year brings more restaurant openings. At the inn, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres as well as snacks and drinks at all hours. A three-course breakfast featuring local and seasonal foods is served each morning. Most rooms have a deck or balcony, a two-person marble Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. All have air conditioning, TV, telephone and wireless internet access. Each is unique and tastefully designed. An on-site concierge provides personalized dining and wine country touring recommendations. The concierge also helps guide you to the numerous attractions of wine country – hiking and bicycling, kayaking, bird watching, cultural attractions, balloon rides and spa services. The inn has received numerous awards and been featured in USA Weekend and National Geographic Traveler. The Candlelight Inn is located at 1045 Easum Drive, Napa. For reservations and to hear more about our packages, call 1-800-624-0395 or visit www.candlelightinn.com.

Lost CANYoN WiNeRY / stAtioN 1870 WiNe BAR
BY MICHELLE J. BAKER

123 Fourth Street in Santa Rosa’s historic Railroad Square Lost Canyon tasting room is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Station 1870 until 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and 10:30 p.m. (or later) Thursday through Sunday (707) 623-9619 | www.station1870.com

What award-winning winery’s tasting room by day turns into downtown Santa Rosa’s most hip and happening wine bar by night? By day the tasting room is Lost Canyon Winery, a wellestablished label that debuted in 2001 and was purchased by Fritz Winery in Dry Creek Valley in 2007. Lost Canyon is best known for its single-vineyard Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah sourced from five prime Russian River Valley vineyards. Then at night (or about 4pm), the Lost Canyon tasting room becomes Station 1870 wine bar, which has quickly become one of downtown Santa Rosa’s hottest late-night destinations. The wine bar features live music on weekends and the best of both North Coast and (surprise!) Italian wines imported exclusively by Fritz Winery’s proprietor Clay Fritz. In addition to the Lost Canyon wines, the tasting room and wine bar both offer wines from its sister labels Fritz, which primarily focuses on Dry Creek Valley estate and reserve wines; Jenner, with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast; and Vino Valpredo, featuring a bit of this and a bit of that, including Sonoma County Merlot and a tasty white blend. And then there are the Italian wines. Local wine lovers are clicking their heels with joy to find a place in Sonoma County to try a slate of Italian wines from Prosecco to Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino, with more showing up regularly. The Italian wines are carefully chosen and make a perfect Old World complement to the California wines. Whenever you go, take a seat in the warm, cozy couches, at the modern bar or at the romantic, softly-lit tables in the back, relax and let this doting and knowledgeable staff do its thing. Taste a flight of wines, enjoy a glass or bottle of wine before or after dinner, or try a yummy Prosecco cocktail. The team at Station 1870 has also come up with a deliciously creative crostini menu and a lovely cheese plate to pair with your wines if you’re looking for a light nibble. You will want to stick around for a while to enjoy the live music offered Thursday through Saturday nights. Featured artist Amaya Rising, whose music is “flamenco-inspired tours of Europe,” may serenade you with his beautiful viola-playing, and any number of his musical buddies may show up to jam the night away.

‘sisters – sculpture By Jane and tyler Burton’ to debut at a new leaf gallery | sculpturesite
First time Collaboration show by sister sculptors Jane and tyler Burton
Renowned figurative ceramic sculptors Jane Burton and Tyler Burton are debuting their first collaborative exhibition titled “Sisters” on Saturday, January 26 at A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite located at Cornerstone in Sonoma. A reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, January 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the gallery. The show will remain at A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite until April 21. Working in collaboration for the first time, sisters Jane and Tyler Burton have created an installation titled “Selective Memory,” comprised of more than 1,200 hanging white porcelain rocks layered over scores of ancestral faces. The 12'H x 7'L x 3'D piece reflects on family ties, perceived family memories, as well as a realization that we are all a fragment of a larger whole. Both artists’ works are significantly influenced by the countless patterns, textures and colors of nature and reveal their reverence for the power and quietude found there. In addition to the one major collaborative piece, both Jane and Tyler will exhibit several solo works each. Jane Burton has been represented by A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite owner Brigitte Micmacker for more than eight years. “I am thrilled that Jane and her sister Tyler are collaborating on their first show which will take place at our gallery in Sonoma. The idea for ‘Sisters’ grew out of a two-month residency the Burton sisters participated in at the Banff Art Centre in Banff, Alberta Canada,” says Brigitte. “We have always talked about doing some kind of suspended work, and porcelain rocks are a natural for us since we both work in clay and love to collect rocks,” says Jane Burton. “We created each piece and feel like we imbued our DNA, a common gene, on each rock. Our original intention was to create a hanging figure

within the rocks, but as it progressed, we loved the simplicity of a suspended box.” “Working with family or close friends can be challenging, and since we are sisters, you would think it would be extremely challenging, but Jane and I have a dynamic that works really well together,” said Tyler Burton. “First of all, we have the same sense of humor and when together, we laugh a lot. We also have close to the same esthetic and an appreciation for each other’s eye. We can anticipate what each other will think about Jane and Tyler Burton certain things and often we with Selective Memory don’t even have to verbalize a thought. I believe this gives us a communication edge.” A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite is dedicated entirely to modern and Silver Oak Frick contemporary fine art sculpture.

3rd Annual event to Feature Cajun Food, music and second Line Parade
Meadowcroft Wines will once again get a jumpstart on Fat Tuesday when they welcome Mardi Gras in authentic Louisiana style on Saturday, February 9 from noon to 4 p.m. at the tasting room. Located in Cornerstone Sonoma (23570 Arnold Drive/Hwy 121) the third annual party will be rocking with Louisiana/Cajun/dance music by Rhythmtown-Jive. Members of the band will also lead a Second Line parade throughout the Cornerstone shops and gardens to get the party in high gear. All the food for this Mardi Gras celebration is being flown in from Louisiana. On the menu is crawfish etouffe served over rice arriving from Baton Rouge, red beans and rice with Cajun sausage from Eunice, Jack Miller’s Bar-be-que Sauce from Ville Platte, as well as French bread, Louisiana Sensation salad and King Cakes from New Orleans. And, of course, Cajun food pairs exceptionally well with all of the party is $50 per person in advance and $60 per person beginning February 1, and $40 per person for Meadowcroft Wine Club members. The ticket price covers food, wine, music, dancing, parade participation and fun! Tickets may be purchased by calling the tasting room at (707) 934-4090 or online at www.meadowcroftwines.com and at www.localwineevents.com. Meadowcroft Family of Wines includes the Meadowcroft, Thomas Henry and Foyt Family labels. The tasting room is located within the Cornerstone Sonoma that features 24 world-class gardens, a gourmet café, art galleries and cutting-edge design shops all set among acres of vineyards. Meadowcroft Wines is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The venue is available for private parties, private tastings, wine dinners and other events. With plenty of free parking at Cornerstone Sonoma, the area is a perfect setting for any type of event, both indoors or outdoors. For information or to make reservations, call (707) 934-4090.

Meadowcroft Wines. “I don’t believe there is a more authentic Mardi Gras celebration in Northern California than what we have done over the past two years, and it just keeps getting better,” said Tom Meadowcroft, owner and winemaker of Meadowcroft Wines. “When it comes to the food, the music, the parade and the crowning of our King and Queen of Mardi Gras, this is as close to a Louisiana celebration as you can get.” The Krewe of Meadowcroft Mardi Gras

Make Valentine’s Day memorable with a very special dinner at St. Francis from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Celebrate with great wine and food as Executive Chef David Bush creates an exquisite menu for you and your special someone. Share an intimate candlelit experience, with each tantalizing course expertly paired with St. Francis premium Artisan Series wines. Cost is $125 per person, $99 for wine club members (plus tax and gratuity). Reservations are required.

For the best of everything, come to St Francis Winery & Vineyards. Start by admiring the majestic view surrounding the Visitor Center. With its plush foliage, acres upon acres of vineyards and intricate, Tuscan-inspired architecture, St. Francis Winery is nothing short of breathtaking. Sit on the back patio taking in the view nearly 150 acres of estate vineyards as well as the grandeur of Hood Mountain. With a number of tasting options, there is a selection of wines for every palate.

A well-known tourist destination, visitors come to Sonoma to experience the idyllic Wine Country lifestyle.

lodi’s 16th annual wine & chocolate weekend, february 9 & 10 featuring Brix chocolate
This year marks the sixteenth occasion of one of Northern California’s favorite Valentine’s Weekend celebrations: Lodi Wines’ annual Wine & Chocolate Weekend. Festivities are scheduled for Saturday, February 9th and Sunday, February 10th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Bring someone special to Lodi Wine Country and fall in love with the diversity of handcrafted wines from the Lodi winegrowing region paired with decadent chocolate treats by Brix Chocolate. High-end confectioner, Brix Chocolate (www.brixchocolate.com), is the official chocolate sponsor of this year’s celebration, generously donating the commemorative chocolate treats that event attendees will be receiving. Brix Chocolate has the distinguished privilege of serving as the first chocolate sponsor of Lodi’s Wine & Chocolate Weekend in 16 years. Brix is the first line of chocolates that are specifically blended to compliment wine, based on the varietal. The primary ingredient of each Brix Chocolate is single origin Ghanaian chocolate, known for its red fruit tones, mixed with the highest quality confectionery chocolate. The result is a blend so pure in flavor that it actually enhances the nuances found in great wines, without confounding the palate. In addition to exceptional wines and chocolate, event attendees to the Lodi Wine & Chocolate Weekend will have the opportunity to visit over 45 participating wineries over the course of two days and engage in various activities such as wine and chocolate pairings, barrel tastings, live music and winery tours. More than 100 prizes will be awarded to lucky wine and chocolate lovers, including a Lodi Wine Country Getaway and the “Golden Ticket,” which will be hidden in a commemorative chocolate bag. “Lodi’s Wine & Chocolate Weekend is the quintessential occasion for anyone interested in one of the greatest gustatory pleasures: the pairing of wine and chocolate,” said Camron King, Executive Director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission. “Not only does this event offer exceptional wines, but one can experience the passion, heritage and variety of the Lodi wine region.” Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.lodiwineandchocolate.com or by calling the Lodi Wine and Visitors Center at (209) 365-0621. Advance tickets cost $45 per person and $55 per person during the event. Tickets include a commemorative wine glass, a chocolate gift, wine tasting and admission to all participating wineries. Tickets are valid for both Saturday and Sunday and there is no charge for designated drivers.

eighth annual alsace varietals festival, feb. 9-10
Festival to showcase international Whites, dinner by Chef John Ash
For the eighth consecutive year, the Anderson Valley Winegrowers Association will host the International Alsace Varietals Festival – an event that has become a premier showcase for Alsacestyle whites from around the world. The 2013 festival, to be held February 9-10, features a winemaker dinner by Chef John Ash, a cooking demonstration by mother-and-son duo Joyce and Evan Goldstein and much more. Producers from Anderson Valley to Alsace will pour Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat during the weekend’s festivities. Alsace Festival events will include an educational seminar, a food and wine pairing demonstration, a grand tasting, a group winemaker dinner and winery open houses. Saturday morning’s educational session will blend both pertinent issues in winemaking and grape growing with wine tasting. Topics will range from botrytis management to a “Gastro Tour of Alsace” and a 30-year retrospective Riesling tasting by Greenwood Ridge Vineyards Winemaker Allan Green. The Alsace Varietals Grand Tasting on Saturday afternoon will showcase aromatic white wines from approximately 30 producers. Fantastic small bites will be paired with the wines, including: Tomales Bay oysters; tarte flambée by Piaci’s Pizza; a selection of cheeses from Boont Berry Farm; a pork belly dish created by Chef Marc Dym of The Little River Inn; custom chocolates from Essence by Chocolate, and several others. Evan Goldstein, M.S. – cookbook author and president and chief education officer at Full Circle Wine Solutions, Inc. – will host an engaging and educational food & wine pairing demonstration just prior to Saturday’s grand tasting. His mother, Joyce Goldstein, also an acclaimed food author and expert, will join her son for the demonstration.

Monterey county named top ten wine destination in the world
The Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce Wine Enthusiast has selected the destination as a 2013 Top Ten Wine Travel Destination in the World. Monterey County is the only California wine region to make the 2013 list. “The wine country in Monterey County is less commercialized and provides a more authentic experience for the devoted wine enthusiast,” said Tammy Blount, CEO of the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “A wine country itinerary in Monterey County is perfectly complemented with our incredible array of intimate dining options, world-class shopping and spa experiences, and the most beautiful coastline in the world,” she added. The designation is the result of Wine Enthusiast editors who trek the globe each year in search of the most exciting places to visit. Decisions are based on overall cultural experience, timeliness, travel infrastructure and, of course, wine quality in the region. The entire list is featured in the February 2013 issue of Wine Enthusiast, available on newsstands now. Monterey County has seen a stunning forty percent increase of tasting rooms in the last year and is home to more than 40,000 acres of premium vineyards. Wine enthusiasts are able to take public transit to tasting rooms in rustic Carmel Valley which is home to the new East End Wine Row. Shoppers can mix finding their latest treasure with wine tasting in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Fifteen tasting rooms are now located in the walkable one square mile known for unique shops. Vineyard experiences along River Road are also gaining momentum with ATV rides through the vines. “There are amazing things happening in Monterey County, especially in wine. I feel we are finally getting the recognition we deserve,” said Sabrine Rodems, winemaker of Monterey County based Wrath Wines. For more information about Monterey County, visit www.SeeMonterey.com.

Passport purchase and more information is available by visiting www.RiverRoadWineTrail.com. The River Road Wine Trail (formerly Steinbeck Wine Country) is an association of 14 Monterey County winery tasting rooms, located primarily along the River Road / Foothill Road corridor, on the Santa Lucia bench above the Salinas Valley. Charming and intimate, these tasting rooms specialize in limited release vintages and genuine hospitality. Often, visitors will be sampling with the actual winemaker. Conveniently situated just east of Monterey and Carmel, and about seventy minutes south of San Jose, the River Road Wine Trail has become one of the Central Coast’s premiere wine touring destinations. The group’s online home is RiverRoadWineTrail.com.
