INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

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

BY JOSH STEIN

Trellising: How Grapevines Got a Shape
Every grape vine pretty much looks like every other one, right? Well, while driving past them it may seem to be the case, but the truth is small differences in the shape of the vines can have major impacts on wine quality, yield, bouquet, taste and mouthfeel. Believe it or not, the shape the grapes are grown within has a major but often unrecognized impact on what ends up in your glass. Trellising is dirty, un-sexy work, but it’s the lifeblood of growing great wines. The canopy is what converts “sunlight into wine,” so it’s vital on many levels. Each style of trellising has to take into account a number of variables along the way to creating a structure which allows for vine balance; that’s what’s key to producing grapes with lots of flavor without damaging the vine or its roots through stress, over- or undercropping, or mismatching vine to location. These options include number of shoots per vine, number of leaves per shoot, number of clusters per shoot, orientation toward the sun, shading of the grapes via the canopy, and the overall shape of the canopy, which is determined by the guidewires of the trellis. There are dozens of possible combinations in commercial use today. There are two basic kinds of trellising, though, vis-à-vis various ways of positioning the shoots vertically to maximize access to sunlight while maintaining less vigorous growth in poor, infertile soils, or different styles of dividing the canopy vertically or horizontally to control for vigorous growth in soil too-good for grapevines. What? I sense you thinking: How can soil be too good? Everything you’ve absorbed about growing things the “right” way is the opposite for winegrowing. Soil that is too good encourages excess leaves and excess fruit. The former stresses the vine and keeps it from putting its energy into the grapes. The latter dilutes the flavors in the resulting wines. When winegrowers talk about “Balance is key,” that’s what they mean: all of the elements are properly enfolded together. Some of the more common vertical shoot positionings, known generally as “VSP take the forms of candelabra. Guyot divides the ,” vine quite low to the ground, leaving just two canes regrown each year below guidewires, to which shoots will attach themselves. VSP generally makes the arms permanent, allowing for spurs on the arms from which the vertical shoots grow, and Cordon goes one step further with its permanency, with the shoots generally positioned up, over and then back down so that the clusters are shaded from direct sunlight. In contrast, divided canopy trellising is designed to try to take away excess growth by making the vine work harder for what it does put out. Winegrowers do this by creating more sections with more canes, shoots and/or cordons. Scott Henry creates multiple vertical canopies, making the vine work twice as hard. “California Sprawl” separates the canopy in two, “flopping” large sections of growth to each side; Lyre uses movable guide arms to open or close the “V” and the flop. Genva Double Curtain creates four cordons for each vine, doubling vine energy needs horizontally in contrast to Scott Henry’s upright, split form. Do the range of options really matter? Absolutely, as the trellis style alone has been shown to have an impact on all levels of wine expression: softening or hardening tannins; adding or removing flavors, aromas, and range of ripeness options; effecting yield, concentration and vine life. The term “winegrowing” is a bit of a linguistic oddity, for sure, but as you can see, it’s absolutely appropriate. One of the reasons it’s quite fair to say civilization is wine is that, unlike just about everything else we produce, wine requires our constant attention – even long before a single grape is harvested or a bud breaks. Cheers!

16th Annual Rhone Rangers Weekend Celebration
For two days wine lovers will gather for the 16th Annual Rhone Rangers San Francisco Celebration of American Rhone Wines at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion, during the largest American Rhone wine event in the country. Taste more than 500 of the best American Rhone wines from more than 100 Rhone Rangers member wineries. Tickets are now on sale at www.rhonerangers.org. The 16th annual San Francisco events will include two days of celebration: • Friday, March 22, 6 PM, Winemaker Dinner Fifteen wineries will join together for a winemaker dinner and live auction at the historic General’s Residence at Fort Mason.

B WISE VINEYARDS
Great wines, not to be missed!
BY MICHELLE J. BAKER

Open daily from 10:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. 9077 Sonoma Highway, Kenwood CA 95452
Easy parking along the side and rear of the building or on the side street (Shaw Avenue)

(707) 282-9169 | www.bwisevineyards.com

For as much as the winery’s name seems like a play on words, the story of B Wise Vineyards is really about a modest guy with a rather brazen goal - to make world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style blends from his estate vineyard located on Moon Mountain, high above Sonoma Valley. The modest guy, Brion Wise, has been making wines from his mountain estate since 2002, working quietly and without compromise while perfecting his vineyards, and his craft. Wise is the consummate hands-on vintner, drawing on the wisdom and experience of an all-star team of winemaking consultants, including Mark Herold (of Merus fame) and Massimo Monticelli (of Silver Oak). When it comes around to talking about world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley has never received the same respect as, say, Napa Valley or the Bordeaux region in France. But Brion Wise is quietly, and quite convincingly, leading a movement to put Sonoma Valley on the map of great Cabernet Sauvignon regions. The steep slopes of the 100-acre B Wise estate are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Neighboring world-class vineyards such as Monte Rosso, the B Wise property sits above 1,000 feet elevation and benefits from rocky, red volcanic soils, hot days and cool nights. This is tough land to farm, requiring year-round care by hand to prune, sucker, manage canopies and harvest, in pass after pass through the vineyard and throughout the season. It was pretty hard to get one’s hands on the extremely small production

WINE COUNTRY THIS WEEK | WINERY FEATURE
B Wise wines until last July, when Brion and his wife Ronda moved their hospitality operation from their wine cave on the estate, down the mountain and into the center of Kenwood. This newly remodeled, beautifullyappointed tasting lounge is at once light and bright, warm and cozy yet modern. Visitors can get comfortable in the sitting area, or sidle up to the bar to visit with the staff. Trios, a proprietary red blend from the estate comprised of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, is a real steal at $30. Also at incredible quality for the price is the very delicious Wisdom – a unique blend of Cab, Zin, Merlot and Syrah. The Brion wines represent the best of the best at B Wise, and for $15 you can taste the flagship wine – Brion Sonoma Estate Cabernet – alongside the Monte Rosso Cabernet (from their neighbor’s renowned vineyard site) and the Brion Napa Valley Cabernet (sourced from the owners’ friends at Caldwell Vineyard in Coombsville). For as great at these wines are, not to be missed is the 2009 Estate Syrah, an exuberant, muscular and unrestrained wine that is profoundly well-made. Tasting fees start at only $10 for a sampling of six estate wines; B Wise Vineyards makes over a dozen different red wines as well as a rosé. Prices range from $20 to $95 per bottle. Fans who want access to all of the wines (including small lot wines such as a 25-case production Cabernet Franc) should consider joining one of their two wine clubs, the Brion Society or Wise Guys.

Jazzy Summer Nights
Take one part each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, mix in a beautiful terrace, the view of a “Grand Cru” vineyard then stir in great jazz. Add an evening of warm Russian River Valley breezes, a pinch of a magical sunset and the result is the truly amazing Jazzy Summer Nights at Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards. When Sonoma-Cutrer finally opened to the public on July 10th 2010 in their 37th year they wanted to create events and activities that represented the style and quality of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir they produce and celebrate their storied history. The winery is located on 400 gorgeous manicured acres and is ideally suited for live music. The only question was what genre would most appeal to Sonoma-Cutrer aficionados and thier wine club members. When everything was considered it was an easy choice to select jazz. The goal was simple, to bring world class real jazz musicians and bands to the heart of the Russian River Valley to create an unforgettable wine and music experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere. The challenge was to find the right musical combination each year to create 3 different and unique jazz concerts that each delivers the kind of powerful long lasting memories that legends are made of. To accomplish this Sonoma-Cutrer sought the help and guidance of Rob Singleton at KJZY jazz radio in Sonoma County and Bay Area jazz icon Peter Welker. Each brings insights and relationships that help secure the best jazz talent from Northern California and beyond. In addition to great jazz, guests are invited to play croquet on the world class courts located at the winery. Guests can enjoy exquisite food offerings at nominal prices from prominent chefs and restaurants in Sonoma County and of course Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay and Pinot Noir offered by the glass and bottle. In 2013 Jazzy Summer Nights kicks off on June 15th followed by concerts on July 20th and August 10th. All concerts start at 6PM with the terrace opening at 5 p.m. Tickets are $50 each and include a Sonoma-Cutrer Logo wine glass and access to the croquet courts where lessons will be offered by the Sonoma County Croquet Club. Please go to www.sonomacutrer.com and join the Sonoma-Cutter mailing list for more information about performers for each concert as they are announced or call (707) 237-3489 for tickets or more information.

ROMBAUER VINEYARDS
Nine Golds and Double-Golds in the Last Three Months!
BY JOSH STEIN

ROMBAUER VINEYARDS Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 3522 Silverado Trail N, St. Helena CA 94574 (800) 622-2206 | www.rombauer.com

Rombauer Vineyards is one of those wineries – everyone knows, if it says Rombauer on a bottle, you can be guaranteed high quality, soulful wines to go with food, bringing enjoyment to all who partake. The Rombauer philosophy is the “Joy of Wine” – crafting releases meant to pair with meals, echoing great-Aunt Irma Rombauer’s belief that the joy of life is the pursuit of what is best to taste and enjoy. Now at year thirty-three and known for decades as a Napa Valley “must visit,” it’s clear to see – and taste – that they’ve found a winning formula. How? By keeping the emphasis on what matters: drinkable wines and an enjoyable experience – the food and the people matter most, not the attitude! The proof is the nine gold medals won in the last three months at five different wine events, including the San Francisco Chronicle, American Fine Wine and Hilton Head competitons. The winery itself is on the North-East Silverado Trail, giving a fun drive and showing off glorious views and uncrowded experiences on the “road less travelled.” The hilltop winery and tasting room, looking out over the heritage Zindandel vineyard visitors drive through along the way, are built over more than a mile’s worth of caves dug into the hillside. Picnic tables

and a trellised gazebo let you know from the outset what matters most: relaxed enjoyment. Tastings are available daily at three separate tasting bars in the tasting room, as is the self-guided garden tour. Stroll through the more than one hundred plant and flower species and the views of the Mayacamas are photo-worthy, for sure. A flight of classic releases await. The wines are just as much a standout as the views, and fitting in with their ethos, the Rombauers really have thought through the logistics of pairing wine and food, not just in terms of varietals but also in offering multiple bottle sizes, ranging from 375 millimeter half-bottles, to the standard 750 bottle we all know so well, to 1.5-liter magums and even larger formats for occasions requiring something extra special. What awaits are several different Chardonnays, Merlots, Zinfandels, and a range of Cabernets and Cab-based bottlings, including the best of vintage red blend, Le Meilleur du Chai. There are also two terrific sweets, a Zinfandel Port and the Late Harvest Chardonnay known simply and unsurprisingly as Joy. The next generation of Rombauers, siblings Sheana and Koerner III, have stepped into maintaining the winery’s way of doing things with aplomb. Lots of winery-only releases await, and visitors in search of the “real” Napa experience need look no further. There’s a reason the name Rombauer brings such great associations and why they’re winning so many golds still, after three decades; come taste for yourself and find out why – you’ll be glad you did. Enjoy!

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. They are very family and dog friendly. 23574 Arnold Drive/Highway 121, Sonoma CA 95476 (707) 934-4090 | meadowcroftwines.com

The Meadowcroft Wines tasting room is located at the gateway to the Sonoma Valley within a unique collection of shops, art galleries, dining, sculpture trails and architectural gardens called Cornerstone Sonoma. The tasting room opened in October of 2010 and has quickly become a hot spot of activity for folks on the way to and from Sonoma. The recently redecorated tasting room is big and bright and on most days the doors are left wide open, welcoming you to a wine country tasting room that is truly more than just a tasting room. Visitors can taste the award-winning wines at the bar or seated at indoor tables or at outdoor patio tables. There is also the new outdoor “lavender lounge” area complete with comfortable seating, umbrellas and a fire pit. But what people really come to Meadowcroft for is the wine. There are three labels being poured in the Meadowcroft Wines tasting room; Meadowcroft Wines, Thomas Henry Wines and Foyt Family Wines (honoring Indy racing legend A.J. Foyt). Winemaker Tom Meadowcroft crafts his wines from estate and other sustainably farmed vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. His 2008 Meadowcroft estate Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon received a 91 rating in Wine Enthusiast while the Foyt Family Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon just received a Double Gold award at the San Francisco Chronicle wine competition. Known for their special events such as the recently completed Mardi Gras Celebration, the annual Foyt Racing extravaganza and their many songwriter events, the staff at Meadowcroft also enjoys gathering with their wine club members for monthly food and wine events, often served up with their now famous BBQ pizzas with Cajun sausage. The tasting room is gearing up for the spring and summer months

when their weekend Vineyard Tours will resume. Tours are available at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday where guests are given a glass of Meadowcroft Pinot Noir and then tour and learn about the vineyard where the fruit was grown. The classic food and wine pairings created by the tasting room’s Chef Darby will return in summer utilizing fresh, locally grown farm-totable ingredients and cheeses procured from throughout Sonoma County. Additionally, cheese and chocolate pairings are available upon request. Also coming up are some new wine releases which has everyone in the tasting room pretty

excited. The mainstay of the Meadowcroft brand is the estate grown Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from Tom Meadowcroft’s own vineyard on the famed Napa mountain. The 2009 vintage is about to be released, and it stands shoulder to shoulder with the previous four awardwinning vintages. And, there is also a new wine ready for release, the 2010 Meadowcroft Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon also from Napa. This is a limited production wine and will probably sell out quickly. So, whether you stop in to enjoy their wines in the tasting room, the patio or even in the gardens, Meadowcroft Wines should be your first stop in Wine Country.

15 Acres of 153-Year-Old Petite Sirah Vines Being Preserved by David Fulton Winery
one vineyard, one Wine, Made Right: david Fulton Winery’s Petite sirah.
David Fulton Winery, an historic Petite Sirah producer, is pleased to introduce their 2009 vintage Petite Sirah, from their 153-year-old, dry-farmed, head-pruned, family vineyard. The 2009 has been released only a few months and is already receiving steady acclaim from the three International wine competitions it had been entered: The American Fine Wine Competition held in Boca Raton, FL.; San Francisco Chronicle’s International Wine Competition and The International Women’s Wine Competition held in Santa Rosa, CA. The current release of 2009, though unique by itself, packs the same wallop of earlier ones. Dark, big and massive as you would expect of a David Fulton, you will find with this one that Petite Sirah is not just a name – it’s their plan for the game. Black fruit and cassis on the nose, the flavors of black berries, black pepper, allspice, cloves and creamy sweet oak are a few of the descriptors that come to mind. The mid palate is coating, thick and packed with texture. There is a long finish with a bit more grip than usual. They suggest you can drink now, hold for a year or two, or lay it down for a decade as all viable options. Only 281 cases were produced. In the 2009, growing season, there were considerably less days of frost than in previous years, which lowered to some extent the danger of crop loss. However, late spring rains delayed warm temps until June weather curtailed excessive canopy development. Finally, there were nearly 14 days of 100°F temperatures, which brought the overall weather around to a more desirable growing season. “We have one vineyard and make just one wine here at David Fulton Winery. Our total production is less than 400 cases a year,” says DFW’s Stephanie Trotter Zacharia. “We sort the clusters by hand before de-stemming then, we hand sort each berry before fermentation…We subscribe to a three-year barrel aging program before each release.” The David Fulton Winery 2009 Petite Sirah was grown in the historic St. Helena estate vineyards planted in 1860. David Fulton also built the town’s first stone wine cellar under the winery next to it just one year later. He also invented the famous “Fulton One Horse Plow.” This exact location is where the wine is still being produced today – in much the same, old-fashioned way. It is the same location where the current owners offer tastings. The vineyard and winery’s current owners are David Fulton’s greatgrandson, Fulton Mather and his wife, Dink. They pick and sort the grapes each year along with wine club members, friends and family, by hand before fermentation. The fermented grapes skins are then pressed out in a traditional wood basket press, and the wine is aged

for nearly three years in thin-staved French oak barrels. The resulting wine receives consistently high acclaim among their peers and is a favorite referral among Petite Sirah fans. David Fulton Winery & Vineyards is located at 825 Fulton Lane, just four blocks east of Hwy 29, in Napa Valley’s historic St. Helena. Visitors are invited to the winery any day by appointment. You should note that the winery doesn’t have any commercial signage, so you’ll have to look for the address (825 Fulton Lane) to enjoy the winery’s private setting. For appointments or more infomation, call (707) 967-0719 or go to www.DavidFultonWinery.com. Look for David Fulton Winerty & Vineyards on Facebook and Twitter!

WCtW: Describe the perfect day in wine country. Ho: Cappuccino. Hiking. Bubbles. Brunch! Tasting
an old favorite. Tasting a new favorite. Downtime. Spa. Sunset. Cocktails. Dinner. Taxi. (Plus a craft beer in there somewhere, too). WCtW: What winery do you think has the best “over-the-top” experience to offer visitors? Ho: For the most part the showstopper is a comprehensive experience offering some combination of beautiful winery, skillful food pairings, talented winemaker, private library tasting and impressive wine portfolio. All these and more contribute to making a brand shine. The factor that really sells it? Authenticity. WCtW: Where do you send guests that want to learn about wine? Ho: For the best wine education first visit an iconic property like Opus One or Grgich Hills, followed up by a small-production winery that offers open-ended experiences. WCtW: Where would you take friends to learn about/taste organic wines? Ho: Envolve Winery, Robert Sinskey and Tres Sabores are each every different but all specialize in organic (and Biodynamic) wine production. WCtW: What areas would you recommend that are not part of the popular wine country? Ho: With exceptional wines from Brown Estate and experiences like the off road vineyard tour at Somerston, the drive to Sage Canyon is especially worth it if you enjoy Zinfandel or Petite Sirah. WCtW: Tell us the best wineries to bring pets. Ho: Bring your pup first to Domaine Chandon or Honig, followed by a must visit to Frenchie Winery and then to PAGE Wine Cellars making time for lunch at Lucy of course.

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

CM: The “perfect” day is different for each guest, so – as a former San Francisco Chief Concierge who moved here for the wine and stayed for the river and the trees – I continually seek the mostmemorable mix Sonoma County has to offer. Begin your day with the popular, hearty breakfast buffet at the Fountaingrove Inn, and then head to Goat Rock State Beach. This State Park is located where the fresh water Russian River meets the salty Pacific, and a brisk-morning visit to this microcosm of life is a must-do. Then, head east to Guerneville for a leisurely stroll through the magnificent giants that encompass Armstrong Woods State Park, an ancient grove of Coastal Redwoods; this is a do-not-miss multisensory experience. Both parks can be enjoyed throughout the year, even in winter! Now, on to Korbel for a fabulous tour and tasting; don’t forget to visit their Marketplace, where you’ll create a picnic delight you’ll enjoy later! Of course, I base my winery suggestions on varietals sought by my guests, but always recommend a drive to the vintners of scenic Dry Creek and Russian River Appellations. Among my personal favorites are Bella Vineyards (great reds, rustic cave tour, winery artifacts from around the world), Amista (pet-friendly, worldclass wines); VML Winery (gold medal-winning Pinot), Lambert Bridge (enjoy your picnic lunch amid their beautiful gardens with a glass of their finest!) and the casual Kokomo Winery (to-die for Zin and MOST gracious hospitality!). Afterward, enjoy late-afternoon one-of-a-kind shopping in the Victorian town of Healdsburg; end your day with a delicious dinner at our restaurant, Equus, or at the Michelin-rated, small plates gem Willi’s Wine Bar.

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

Bottle Blending Day Camp
Play Winemaker for a Day at Judd’s Hill
One of the reasons that Napa Valley consistently ranks among the top tourism destinations in the world is that there are always new things to do, taste and experience, no matter how often you return to this diverse and innovative grape-growing region. Though the history of wine spans millennia; the winemaking process is rediscovered and re-imagined with every new vintage. At Judd’s Hill Winery and MicroCrush, visitors are encouraged to use their creativity and imagination while learning first hand about the final stage of the winemaking process. In 2009, the Finkelstein family of Judd’s Hill had the forward-thinking idea of creating a “Bottle Blending Day Camp” experience (BBDC for short), during which visitors to their winery, located at the southern end of Napa’s Silverado Trail, can actually craft their own, personal, Napa Valley Bordeaux-style blend. The wines used for this blending experience currently include barrel lots of two Cabernet Sauvignons, each from a different vineyard, plus a Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all from Napa Valley’s 2010 vintage. Judd’s Hill specializes in making small lots of hand-crafted wines for their Judd’s Hill label, and for dozens of their Custom MicroCrush clients. It can take years to convert clusters of grapes into a ready-todrink bottle of red wine. Blending finished wine, however, is a vital part of the winemaking process that can be accomplished in a relatively short time. These BBDC experiences are led by extremely knowledgeable and passionate wine educators and take about two hours to complete. During the session, a wine educator will guide blenders through the intricacies of creating a wine best suited to the tastes of the blender, explaining and demystifying the process along the way. Once a favored cuvée has been decided upon and a name is chosen, the newly minted wineblenders will complete the process by hand-bottling, labeling and “spinning” foil capsules over the bottle necks. The wine is then ready to take home the same day. It’s a great way to spend a few hours in wine country and is sure to increase any wine lover’s knowledge and appreciation for every bottle of wine they enjoy in the future.

The Bottle Blending Day Camp at Judd’s Hill has several options: $225 enables you to take home three finished bottles of wine; $395 results in six bottles; $695 is a 12bottle adventure. A 24-case, full barrel option, is also available (bottling will be at later date). Sessions can be scheduled for any day of the week, and 24 hours advanced notice is usually sufficient for groups as large as eight. The Judd’s Hill BBDC experience is also a great outing for larger groups ranging in size from 10-100. Reservations can be made by calling the winery at (707) 2552332 or visiting their website at www.juddshill.com.

Open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reservations are not necessary (unless you have a group of 6 or more). Taste their highly acclaimed wines while relaxing with a light picnic at their charming country haven. 2191 Laguna Road, Santa Rosa CA 95401 (707) 823-2404 | www.martinraywinery.com

Martin Ray Winery is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley near Santa Rosa and I think this area has to be one of the area’s best kept secrets. This location, while off the beaten path, is easy to get to and allows guests a more intimate wine tasting experience. Escape the crowds and enjoy wine country at its best! Martin Ray Winery is known for crafting consistently good wines at reasonable prices. Their staff loves to gently educate their guests and is knowledgeable about the area, so they can also help you plan your next move. They are situated amongst restaurants and markets and they encourage guests to pack a picnic prior to their visit so they can enjoy the leisurely lifestyle found here. Purchase wines by the glass or the bottle to enjoy at one of their picnic tables or on their spacious lawn surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Martin Ray Winery is privately owned by Courtney Benham, who acquired the historic Martini & Prati Winery in 2003. Since then, he has been dedicated to maintaining the winery’s rich heritage while transforming the space into a state-of-the-art modern winemaking facility. The renovation has been a true labor of love for him. This is the one of California’s oldest continuing wineries, with the tasting room structure dating back to the 1900's. Tucked away with lush landscaping, you will find their newly finished Event Pavilion for use in the near future. By summer, the last phase of modernization should be in place, so they will soon be able to offer tours of the property highlighting the winery’s history. Their portfolio is comprised of three different labels so there is a wine suitable for everyone’s palate. The Martin Ray Wines are produced in a classic European style and will continue to follow this legendary winemaker’s ideals, the Angeline Wines are fresh, fruit forward wines that are meant for daily enjoyment and the Courtney Benham Wines offer more unusual varietals, while still being produced in the classic European style. Martin Ray Winery is the one of the only wineries in the Russian River Valley that produces reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the Diamond Mountain Vineyard and Stag’s Leap District. Courtney Benham has secured long term contracts with growers so they consistently have access to some of the best grapes in California. They have also established a relationship with Dan Goldfield of Dutton-Goldfield to create small, reserve lots of Pinot Noir for future release.

New Muscardini Tasting Room Opens in Kenwood
After five years of hard work cementing the well-known fact that local winemaker, Michael Muscardini, is a master of his trade, Muscardini has opened his own tasting room in Kenwood. Formerly sharing a tasting room with Ty Caton, Michael and his team, Jennifer Kosko (tasting room manager), Laura Lujan (hospitality), and Alice Schimm (office manager) have found a new home in the Red School House at 9380 Sonoma Highway, just south of his previous tasting room. The charming and much-loved schoolhouse was around in the 1860s when Abe Lincoln was president. Visitors will be thrilled to see what is inside now! With a large deck facing east toward the Mayacama Mountains, you can taste the award-winning Italian varietals, and more, while watching the sun rise and set. Picnic tables in the big back yard, will welcome friends, family and their dogs. Inside the room you can enjoy not only Michael’s great wine, but also local delicacies such as Sondra Bernstein’s delicious jams, Bonnie Tempesta’s biscotti, the finest Italian salami and of course, local cheeses with fresh bread. Guests will also be able to enjoy a rotating selection of artwork with beautiful glass art by Stone Cohn and the featured artist this month, Margaret Hatcher. If you are lucky, Michael and Beni, his loveable 94-pound golden retriever, will greet you at the door! Combine Michael’s award-winning wines, in a beautiful setting with great art and, of course, the friendly hospitality that he is know

for, and your idea of what a tasting room should be like, will be transformed. Muscardini Cellars Tasting Room is located at 9380 Sonoma Highway in Kenwood, CA 95452 and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (707) 933-9305 or visit the website at MuscardiniCellars.com.

KENWOOD VINEYARDS Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   9592 Sonoma Hwy Kenwood, CA 95452 (707) 833-5891 | www.kenwoodvineyards.com

Visiting Sonoma County is an amazing experience full of historical attractions, fine restaurants and award winning wines. Kenwood Vineyards is a beautiful historic winery that is dedicated to producing premium wines truly representative of the worldclass vineyards found here. Kenwood Vineyards was established in 1970 in the former Pagani Brothers Winery, a historic cellar dating back to 1906. Thoroughly refurbished and modernized, the facility is completely devoted to Kenwood Vineyards’ small-lot style of winemaking. This style allows their winemaking team to develop each lot of wine to showcase classic character, subtle complexity and superb balance. In addition to the 23 acre estate vineyard surrounding the winery, they also source grapes from dozens of sustainably farmed vineyards in Sonoma County’s best appellations. The harvest from each vineyard is handled separately to preserve its individuality and true character. As a result, every Kenwood Vineyards wine is consistently delicious. The best expression of Sonoma County’s renowned varietals can be found in Kenwood’s extensive portfolio. With more than 30 wines across seven series, you are sure to find a favorite. The acclaimed Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon originated in 1978 when Kenwood Vineyards commissioned local artist David Lance Goines to create an original work to grace its first reserve style 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon. The idea was to create an elegant, distinctive package that would showcase the outstanding art. Today, each vintage represents a different work of art, reinforcing the unique character of the collection. Another distinctive favorite among wine enthusiasts is the Jack London Wines. Kenwood Vineyards has the exclusive rights to harvest the historic, lavaterraced vineyards of the famous Jack London Ranch. From these vineyards, award-winning, limited-production wines are produced. The dramatic etched wolf’s head logo adorns the label on these wines. Kenwood Vineyard’s best-selling line of wines is the Sonoma Series. These wines are fruit forward and are meant to be enjoyed daily. With their central wine country location, it’s easy to discover the rich heritage and exceptional wines of Kenwood Vineyards. Every Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m., they hold an Art, Food & Wine Experience. Guests will have the opportunity to see original art pieces from the collection that began with the controversial 1975 “Naked Lady,” by David Lance Goines. Savory appetizers will be paired to bring out the best characteristics of the wine. Reservations are necessary and can be made by calling (707) 282-4228. For a more in-depth exploration of their wines, consider a private tasting overlooking the vineyards. Reservations are necessary and can be made by calling (707) 282-4228.

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

Spring in the Vineyards of the Santa Cruz Mountains
BY LAURA NESS

By the early part of March, most all of the mountain vineyards are pruned and ready for the next grapecycle. Burrell School has an amazing 14,200 vines between their two estate properties, and they’ve all received a haircut by February’s finale. Frost-prone areas tend to wait as long as possible to shave their vines, but it gets dicey to wait much past mid-March, as the steady march toward spring is well up to tempo. Don’t forget, turn your clocks ahead an hour on March 9 for Daylight Savings Time.

tour of the mountain wineries, so be sure to visit Poetic Cellars if you’ve not yet been. Head to Shadowbrook on Saturday evening for a special Pinot-themed winemakers dinner with Burrell School, Dancing Creek, Hallcrest and Silver Mountain, among others, paired with the locally-sourced cuisine of Executive Chef, Ashley Hosmer. She’s a Santa Cruz local, so she takes the locovore concept quite seriously.

Futures at Burrell school
Educate your palate with barrel tasting and futures every weekend in March. This year’s selections include Pinot Noir, Zin-Syrah, Petite Sirah and Syrah, all 2011 vintage. At Pinot Paradise, Burrell School will pour at both winemaker dinners, and will offer special tastings on Saturday at the winery. And, of course, they’ll be at Pinot Paradise with the newly released 2008. Burrell School is closed on Easter Sunday, the 31st. Happy Easter! Come by Saturday for your Easter wines – the 2009 Teacher’s Pet and 2008 Principal’s Choice Pinot are perfect choices.

it’s Pinot Paradise time, March 22-24
March brings the 9th annual Pinot Paradise to the Santa Cruz Mountains, and this year, it’s better than ever, with a three-day immersion in all things Pinot. It kicks off on Friday, March 22, at The Mountain Winery, with a technical program focusing on the elusive character of minerality in Santa Cruz Mountains Pinots, with a presentation by Dr. James Kennedy, PhD. Professor, Chair and Director of the of the Dept. of Viticulture and Enology, UC Fresno and Director of the Viticulture and Enology Research Center. Legendary Josh Jensen of Calera is keynote speaker, along with a panel of local rockstars, including winemakers Bradley Brown and Lindsey Otis of Big Basin Vineyards, Nathan Kandler of Thomas Fogarty Winery, Duncan Meyers of Arnot-Roberts and Jim Schultze, winemaker/owner, Windy Oaks Winery. A reception with winemakers follows, preceding a multi-course winemaker dinner at The Mountain Winery, featuring live food pairing demonstrations by Executive Chef, David Sidoti. Certainly promises to be a memorable experience: seating is limited, so reserve now at scmwa.com. Among the wineries at the Friday dinner are Burrell School, Dancing Creek, Pleasant Valley Vineyards and newcomer, Silvertip Vineyards, named for a type of fir tree grown at this former Christmas tree farm. Saturday brings “Pathway to Pinot Paradise,” a self-guided

Loma Prieta Features Pinotage verticals
Loma Prieta is grafting more estate Pinot Noir vines to Pinotage, so those vintages of estate Pinot Noir are about to become as rare as are the first two vintages of estate Pinotage! All month long, taste and purchase a vertical of Loma Prieta Pinotage from Amarosa Vineyard, while supplies last. New to the tasting room is the 2008 Saveria Pinot, another lovely example of what this vineyard in Corralitos can produce. Stock up on these wines for Easter feasting.

Poetic Cellars
Katy Lovell’s new release of Pinot Noir from the Regan Vineyard, 2010, will be featured all month long and you’re sure to fall in love. Also new at Poetic Cellars is the stunning “Masquerade” white blend, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, perfect for spring time sipping. Be sure to try her new 2009 Mourvedre as well: stunning and sensual, a pure red-fruited example of the racy Rhone varietal.
