INTELLIGENCE FOR THE WINE CONSUMER
BY LEN NAPOLITANO

What is Residual Sugar?
Regardless of whether a wine tastes sweet or dry, just about every wine contains a small amount of unfermented sugar, measured in grams per liter of wine. The sugar comes from the clear juice inside the grapes, which is transformed from a sweet juice as the grapes are crushed, or pressed, to a nearly dry juice during the process of fermentation. The amount of sugar that remains can range from one gram per liter of wine to about 25 grams per liter, depending on the wine’s type, style and geographic origin. Some of the world’s greatest sweet dessert wines will have a residual sugar content of around 250 grams per liter, or more. Wines with a residual sugar content of less than two grams per liter, which may also be referred to in percentage (0.2%) are technically considered dry because the average palate will not be able to detect this small amount of sweetness. As the sugar content increases, sweetness still may not be tasted due to other components of the wine that will balance out the sweetness. For example, when a white wine has a high amount of acidity, the acids balance high residual sugar, and therefore make the sugar content seem insignificant. Even big, robust red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, may have a fair amount of residual sugar but it becomes unnoticeable with an equal level of rich fruitiness or tannin – that astringent quality that has a drying effect on the mouth like an over-steeped cup of tea. In some areas of the winemaking world, grapes do not achieve full ripeness and therefore do not start out with a lot of sugar in the crushed or pressed juice. Thus, when fermentation quits, and the yeast has converted it all to alcohol, the result is a relatively low level of alcohol in the wine. In some cases this is desirable, in others, not. Sugar may be added to the juice before fermentation begins, laws permitting, in order to achieve a higher final alcohol level. But in most of California, failure to achieve ripeness is usually not a concern and the winemaker controls residual sugar by deciding when to stop fermentation. Stopping fermentation before all the sugar is converted will leave residual sugar in the final product. When you’re in a tasting room and you are told that a wine has residual sugar content, or when you read a wine label that states the wine has a certain amount of residual sugar, don’t automatically think the wine will taste sweet. Good dry wines are balanced with counteracting components that make residual sugar an imperceptible, but big contributor to the wine’s drinking pleasure.

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!

EN GARDE WINERY

The signs of spring are in the air in Sonoma Valley: magnolia trees in full bloom in shades of pink and white; tiny buds pushing out on grapevines, beginning their march toward fall harvest; and tasting rooms spiffing up as they emerge from the gray and quiet of winter season. Down at En Garde Winery, located smack dab in the center of Kenwood, the newly remodeled tasting room is welcoming spring with a new look, new lighting, a cozy couch and comfy stools at the bar that will make you go “ahhhhh.” En Garde Proprietor/winemaker Csaba (pronounced “Chaba”) Szakal began making wine in his garage in Silicon Valley, where he worked as a computer programmer, in 2001. His wife Sandy, who grew up on Chalk Hill Road in Healdsburg, was instrumental in connecting him with prime grape growers who were longtime family friends. Winemaking wasn’t really a new venture for Csaba, though, who as a fourth generation winemaker from Hungary truly has winemaking in his blood. Also in Csaba’s blood is the traditional Hungarian heavy pour, an attribute that caused Csaba’s friends to tease that they had to be “en garde” of his propensity to overfill a wine glass. The friendly bantering gave Csaba the perfect name for his new winery when he unveiled his first commercial wine, a Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, in 2007. Then as now, Csaba is completely focused on using the best sources for the best fruit to make the best wine. Proof that he’s

doing just that is the fact that he won the Affairs of the Vine Cabernet Shootout two years on a row with his Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as a Double Gold medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. The wine list at En Garde now includes more nearly a dozen wines in addition to the Diamond Mountain Cab. The Dry Rosé is a delicious warm weather wine redolent of strawberries and flowers. The old family tradition for Csaba was to “mix half sparkling water and half rosé in the summertime to enjoy the wine while staying hydrated.” Csaba sources his magnificent Albarino (an Spanish varietal that is just starting to garner a following in California) from Bokisch Vineyards in Lodi, a well-regarded grower of Spanish varietals. En Garde produces two Pinot Noirs from Starky Vineyards in the Russian River Valley (another connection from Sandy). These are bright-fruited, deep wines with great acidity. Csaba’s foray into less common red varietals nets visitors more fun, interesting wines: Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo. To satisfy those with a sweet tooth, Csaba makes a knockout berry Port from raspberries, tart cherries, pomegranates and blackberries. It’s a takeoff on a very dark, rich cherry wine his grandfather made out of “gypsy cherries.” The Magdalena Port is an incredibly smooth, satisfying after-dinner sipper.

PRAGER WINERY AND PORT WORKS
BY ALEXANDRA CHARSLEY

PRAGER WINERY AND PORT WORKS Tastings by appointment from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. daily 1281 Lewelling Lane in St. Helena. (707) 963-7678 | www.pragerport.com.

When visiting Napa Valley, not many people think about Port Wine but whenever I’m in St. Helena, my trip isn’t complete without a visit to Prager Winery and Port Works. Located right off of Highway 29, it makes a sweet finish to an afternoon. This family-owned and operated winery has been hand-crafting various styles of port since their first harvest in 1979. Founded by Jim and Imogene Prager, the winery’s first vintage included Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Cabernet Port. Their children now handle all the winery’s operations but Imogene still makes her caramelized walnuts as the perfect complement to their port wine. Their tasting room is quaint and it reminds me of being home sipping wine with my family and friends. Wine tastings are $20 for a flight of five premium ports and wines and they are currently pouring two table wines and six different ports and you get to keep your glass! While they do produce some ports in an old world vintage style, they have taken a classic and made it modern and a little edgier. Their port wines can be enjoyed now and aren’t cloyingly sweet and over the top but still possess rich liveliness. Think charcuterie and chocolate and add a little port! Their flagship port is the Royal Escort and in exceptional years is designated Royal Escort Vintage Port. This port is made with 100% Petite Sirah grapes from the Paladini Vineyard in St. Helena and happens to be my favorite port they produce. The rich deep garnet color lends to a fresh pressed berry bouquet followed by ripe cherries on the palate and is well balanced. The Noble Companion 10-year-old Tawny Port is made from the 2001 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and has a golden-orange hue with hints of light caramel/butterscotch and a rich creamy texture with candied orange peel and walnut.

While the Prager’s source fruit throughout Napa Valley they have also planted the traditional Portuguese varietals of Tinta Roriz, Tinta Cao and Touriga at their Calistoga vineyard. This gives them the opportunity to add structure, depth and versatility to their ports. Tomas Port is their first Portuguese varietal port made from these grapes and is an elegant and smooth addition to their portfolio. For those who seek out the rare and unusual they produce a white port. The Aria White Port is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes and then aged in oak barrels for three years. I’ve served this semi-sweet port with tuna ceviche and it’s a hit! Prager Winery also produces a Petite Sirah wine that is made from the Paladini Vineyard grapes. This is a full bodied red that is beautifully balanced with a silky smooth finish and is a steal at $22. Their late harvest Riesling Sweet Claire, is a medium-bodied dessert wine with rich flavors of pear and allspice and offers well balanced acidity. They also offer Chocolate Port Drizzle and portfilled chocolates both made with their Prager Port by Anette’s Chocolates in Napa. Or, try any of their three vinegars as they make a great marinade for flat iron steak or a lightly dressed salad. Prager Winery and Port Works tasting room is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Usually, you will find a family member pouring in the tasting room and I always appreciate their conversation and education they happily provide.

Zero Defects, All Fun!
BY JOSH STEIN

ZD WINES Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4;30 p.m. 383 Silverado Trail, Napa CA 94558 1-800-487-7757 | www.zdwines.com

Long before Napa was world famous, wine country had its intrinsic appeals: a slow pace of gradual movement, an appreciation for the Valley’s environs, working with and not against Nature. That feeling of connectedness is what ZD’s tasting room, their range of fantastic estate and organic wines, and various tasting experiences are designed to let you feel for yourself – and it’s why they’re our tasting room of the week! ZD stands not only for its founders’ initials but also for “Zero Defects,” which aptly describes not just the wines but the time spent at this perfect place in the heart of the Silverado Trail. Norman deLeuze and partner Gino Zepponi – the “ZD” in ZD Wines – were two aerospace engineers with a love of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay who received the first new Sonoma County permit in decades when they fell in love with Carneros in the 1970s. This new winery permit allowed the multiple-generation family winery to thrive this long because they know how to take the best the Valley gives them and put it into the bottle for others to enjoy, as is evinced by the wall of awards tucked discreetly to the side in the tasting room. ZD are producers of more than excellent Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – plus some very special winery-only bottlings, known as the Rosa Lee “Whims,” including, at various times, releases of Barbera, Grenache Rosé, Malbec, Muscat Canelli, Mourvèdre, Petit Sirah, Pinot Grigio, Riesling and Viognier – the newest is a delicious and rarely seen Charbono, released on March 1st, with a new Sémillon to follow on June 1st. In 1999, ZD introduced something equally unique – their Abacus wine, a solera-style multiple-vintage blend of every ZD Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ever produced, which is held in the barrel until bottling. Every year since, a limited amount is bottled and that year’s new vintage Reserve Cabernet is added back to the barrels. The property is in the heart of the motherlode of California wine, so it doesn’t get any better if you’re going to pick only one spot to really get to know Napa. You’ll be told that when ZD Wines does something, they do it with “No halfways,” and they’re absolutely right. Tasting options include current releases, reserve bottlings and a special Chardonnay retrospective, allowing you to taste the house style and see its different expressions over time.

ZD Wines also offers special tours and tastings by appointment only. Weather-permitting, the Eco Tour provides the opportunity for conversation about the ZD estate and its practices. As you walk the perimeter of the property, you are exposed to all the various ways in which ZD and its people act as conservators: organic farming, cover crops, insectiaries, owl boxes, composting and vermicomposting, use of biodiesel for all equipment, hybrid vehicles for everyone, solar panels, waste reduction, water recycling and high efficiency use, fourstage chilling to match power to task at hand, and on and on. The winery even pays employees a daily incentive to carpool! Among a half dozen always changing options, the Private Group Tasting provides a relaxed experience where groups of eight or more people can enjoy a private tasting of ZD’s classic wines in the cellar, and the Cellar Tour and Tasting allows visitors to enjoy several current vintage and reserve wines with a private guided tour through

the cellar and a sampling of wine maturing in the barrel. Most enjoyably, the Vineyard View Tasting provides a selection of current, reserve and library wines in crystal stemware in the eponymous room with its west-Valley-facing floor-to-ceiling windowed space and exterior deck above the crushpad at the top of the winery. From there, you can see almost all of the property as you enjoy the wines complemented by artisan cheeses and finished with a decadent chocolate truffle. Last but not least, like many others, ZD has a wine club, called First Taste, but unlike other clubs, you select what, when and how much you’d like sent. That guarantees the club members don’t just feel special at the winery and makes sure there are zero defects in every shipment. And that really sums up the ZD Wines experience: everything has been tastefully and thoughtfully been considered ahead of time, guaranteeing your time is enjoyably well spent.

Jaxon Keys Winery & Distillery
BY SUE STRAIGHT, THE WINE WENCH®

JAXON KEYS WINERY & DISTILLERY Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 10400 U.S. 101 Hopland, CA 95449 1-877-462-0666 | www.jaxonkeys.com

The mid-day sun beat down mercilessly from a white-hot Western sky as Fred Nickel (aka “Lead Nickel”) faced his opponent in the middle of the dusty ghost town street. A bead of sweat trickled its way slowly down his chiseled face as he swore under his breath and prepared to draw his gun… Fred Nickel, Winemaker for Jaxon Keys Winery & Distillery, is an avid participant in Cowboy Action Shooting – it’s what he does for fun. Cowboy Action Shooting is a shooting sport in which contestants dress in period costumes and compete with firearms typical of those used in the taming of the Old West. The competitions are staged in an “Old West” style and shooters compete on a timed basis. Each scenario, as they are called, features an array of situations, many based on famous incidents or movies scenes, in which the contestants must shoot at steel targets. When not shooting down opponents, Fred spends much of his time making wine and fine brandy at Jaxon Keys Winery & Distillery. This is a man who loves what he does and where he lives – he is a Mendocino County winemaker at heart. After graduating from UC Davis in 1979 with a major in Enology and a minor in Viticulture, Fred worked for some very well-known Mendocino County wineries, including Fetzer, Parducci, Kendall-Jackson (he was their first winemaker), Parson’s Creek, McNab Ridge, Zellerbach, Brutocao and in 2009, he started working with Ken and Diane Wilson at Jaxon Keys Winery & Distillery. Fred’s winemaking philosophy involves patience (knowing when to step away and let the wines mature) and knowing exactly what the grapes on the estate are capable of. I tasted a handful of Fred’s wines during my visit and they were all absolutely delicious! The following wines were my favorites: 2010 Estate Chardonnay $18: This Chardonnay is very Chablis-like – it’s crisp and clean with abundant green apple, citrus and mineral notes from the first sniff, through the long, juicy finish. 2010 Estate Mae’s Block Zinfandel ($24): Seductive scents of blackberry, plum and bramble are enhanced by peppery spice. The mouthfeel is plush and loaded with black fruit, spice and mocha flavors, which linger on and on. Take my advice and wander on up to Jaxon Keys Winery, just north of Hopland in Mendocino County, say hello to “Lead Nickel,” and taste his wonderful wines. Just don’t say “draw!”

JC: I’m not the type to say, “You have to go here … WCtW: Describe the perfect day in wine country. tW: A perfect day in Sonoma starts with a
delicious breakfast at the Sonoma Golf Club, affiliated with The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. Sit back and enjoy their signature lemon cottage cheese pancakes, while overlooking the scenic golf course and sipping your mimosa. Afterward, head over to Robert Hunter Winery for their unique garden tour at their private estate. I am fond of their sparkling and Pinot Noir. Then it’s off to the VJB Vineyards & Cellars to taste their wonderful Italian varietals and for a little lunch from their Mercado. They are serving delicious grilled paninis and pizzas from their brick oven, and have great picnic tables in the patio of their brand new Villagio. After a short drive across the valley, you will arrive at Repris, Sonoma’s newest and most exciting winery (open by appointment only). Their friendly crew tours you through their facility and into their enormous 18,000-squarefoot caves for barrel tasting. Then they load you into an ATV and whisk you through the vineyards to the top of the mountain. You’re now looking down at the entire valley with views spanning all the way to San Francisco. What a jaw dropping view! Now for a little pampering, Fairmont’s Willow Stream Spa, offers a wide array treatments to sooth your stress away. Start with a soak in the hot spring pools which are filled from a natural spring. Your Provider will come for you for your hot stone massage. Now if you are not completely mush, it’s time for the Chef’s tasting menu with wine pairing in Santé, the resorts signature fine dining restaurant. it’s my favorite!” Everyone is different, and with more than 400 wineries in Napa alone, there are enough wineries to please every palette. Personally, I have some that are varietal-specific, others because of great wine and gorgeous grounds (Newton), spectacular caves (Hall Rutherford), or fabulous food and wine pairings (Ram’s Gate)or all of the above (Quintessa). For a great introductory tour, I still think Mondavi’s “Signature Tour & Tasting” is one of the best in the valley! For those thirsty to learn more about wine, there are wineries that conduct blending seminars, allow barrel tasting and, during harvest, even allow guests to actively participate in “punch-down.” For wine blending, Conn Creek is fabulous and Joseph Phelps is very educational. For barrel tasting, I frequently recommend Alpha Omega, Fontanella, Flora Springs Winery and Del Dotto. For those who claim to have “done Napa,” sometimes it’s often a matter of looking beyond Hwy 29 or the Silverado Trail. I love some of the smaller wineries in Coombsville, but am also a big fan of mountain Cabs, and have sent many guests up-valley to Spring Mountain and Howell Mountain. You’d be surprised how many wineries are still not really “on the map” but have much to offer to the most discerning critics. In Coombsville, I love Tournesol, Palmaz and Caldwell. On Howell Mountain, I love O’Shaugnessy, Viader and Cade. On Spring Mountain, I love Barnett, Vineyard 7 & 8 and Spring Mountain Winery. One of the most gratifying aspects of my job is when guests come back to tell me how amazing their day was!

WCtW: If you were to visit just one winery, which would you choose and why? Rs: Many of our guests at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco are looking for the ultimate experience in the Wine Country. One of the options we like to suggest is a private tour and tasting at the Kenzo Estate. The combination of the spectacular natural setting, the prestigious vintages, famous name winemakers and the superb hospitality make this an ideal and refined destination. We suggest that our guests book a seated tasting on the patio with the specially selected food paring which matches the wines with signature dishes from Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Restaurant – another famous name in the Wine Country. WCtW: Which winery has your favorite cave/ cellar tour? Rs: Most guests love cave tours – and they really stimulate the senses! One of my favorites would be the Del Dotto Venetian Estate Winery. The caves are a work of art with textured stone walls, elaborate chandeliers made of Murano glass, and silver candelabras flickering down the barrel lined corridor. For a dramatic setting – this one is incomparable. WCtW: What’s the best wine country picnic spot? Rs: One of the most charming family run wineries around is Sullivan Vineyards in Rutherford. With advance arrangements you can enjoy a lovely day of exquisite food and wine on the outdoor patio outside of the Sullivan home. If you have already been to the big names in the wine country – this experience will have you feeling like you are part of the family at this very special boutique winery.

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

Several tour companies in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys will guide visitors through wine country. However, if you’re seeking a unique, truly customized tour, where you have a hand in planning a more personalized experience, then Knight Wine Tours is a great way to go. Since 2010, owner Stan Knight (a 20-year Napa Valley resident) has been escorting visitors with ease and a flexible spirit through the back roads of wine country. With your preferences in mind, he’ll not only guide you to popular, well known wineries, but to hidden gems where the locals hang out.
A happy customer

one-of-a-kind, customized tours
Guests can opt to “build your own wine country tour” or choose from a variety of specially themed itineraries that cover a range of interests: Wine Country Romance, Taste of the Valley (popular with first-time visitors), Women of Wine Country (visits women-owned or managed wineries), Ghost Wineries & Landmarks, Foodie!, Art & Artisans, Gardens and much more. Starting with curb-side service right from your hotel or residence (providing service across the North Bay, including San Francisco), tours typically range from six to eight hours, visiting top-requested wineries, as well as small, boutique wineries with limited production, where guests often meet the winemaker or proprietor – even the winery hound. It’s a chance to sample wine straight from a barrel in a wine cave, or learn about distinct fermentation processes. With stunning scenery from every car window, the tours soothe the soul. (Sonoma and Napa Valleys are likened to the countryside of Tuscany, Italy.) Most tours are led by enthusiastic owner Stan Knight, who has taken a variety of wine education courses, managed winery renovation projects, speaks

Stan says, “We (once) arranged a private visit with owner Mike Grgich of Grgich HIlls Estate for a group who had never travelled outside of their native Croatia. Near the end of the winery visit, the group, along with Croatian native Mike Grgich, was heartily singing old-world folk songs in Serbo-Croatian – after a few sips of wine, of course!” Bring Fido along, because Knight Wine Tours is a pet-friendly service, visiting wineries that welcome your four-legged companions with a scratch behind the ear (and a dog treat), or they can help arrange for doggy “day-care” for your furry friend during the tour. All tours feature a gourmet picnic lunch at a winery, where you’ll be pampered with a tablecloth and silverware, and lots of vino! Photography is thoughtfully taken throughout the day, and the best images are sent to each guest as a “Memories Photography” gift, following each tour. Supplement your tour: Additional two-hour “Next Level” services can be added to each tour, such as taking a detour to roll up your sleeves at Napa Valley’s Culinary Institute of America, where a chefin-training teaches your group how to whip up a tasty dish in the CIA kitchen; or adventurous folks can opt for a private all-terrainvehicle (ATV) tour of Priest Ranch Vineyard, complete with a progressive hilltop wine tasting.

Miljenko ‘Mike’ Grgich Celebrates 90th Birthday this April
Winery will mark vintner Hall of Fame inductees' ninety years of accomplishments with a birthday gala, cake decorating contest and events throughout the year.
On April 1, 2013 Miljenko “Mike” Grgich will celebrate his 90th birthday. To honor Mike’s achievements, the winery will release its first-ever “Paris Tasting” Chardonnay at a special gala at the winery on April 13th and celebrate with events throughout the year. Mike’s life sounds like a Hollywood movie, journeying from a peasant upbringing in communist Yugoslavia, to a winemaker winning the Paris Tasting and then becoming a winery owner in the Napa Valley. Mike arrived in the Napa Valley in 1958 after a four year journey from Croatia and worked for some of Napa’s iconic wineries: Souverain, Christian Brothers, Beaulieu Vineyards and Robert Mondavi Winery, before becoming winemaker at Chateau Montelena. At Montelena, he crafted the Chardonnay that beat the best white wines in France in the now-famous 1976 Paris Tasting, helping to shatter the myth that only French soil could produce the world’s greatest wines and drawing international attention to Napa Valley wines. On Independence Day 1977, Mike and Austin Hills broke ground in Rutherford to build Grgich Hills Cellar. Since starting Grgich Hills, Mike has continued receiving international awards for his wines and has been recognized for being a leader in sustainable vineyard practices. Mike celebrated his 50th year of making wine in 2008, the same year he was inducted into the Vintners Hall of Fame. Today, all of Grgich Hills’ 366 acres are certified organic and the winery has converted to solar power and is completely estate grown. His influence has been so far-reaching that his famous beret, the suitcase he carried to America, and a bottle of the 1973 Chardonnay that won the Paris Tasting are on display in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s first major exhibition on food history“FOOD: Transforming the American Table 1950-2000.” In addition, a Croatian TV documentary about his life, “Like the Old Vine,” premiered at the Napa Valley Film Festival in November 2012. Visit www.grgich.com to see all of the winery’s events, including a special Gala on April 13th, and the inaugural release of the Paris Tasting Chardonnay, crafted by Mike Grgich in the same style as the Chardonnay that won the 1976 Paris Tasting. Given Mike’s proven track record of creating elegant wines that improve with age, this Chardonnay is sure to become a collectable. The winery will launch a birthday cake decorating contest with the chance to win a trip to Napa Valley and celebrate Mike’s 90 years of accomplishments with the famed winemaker. Today, Grgich Hills farms its 366 acres naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides, and uses its passion and art to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant wines. Mike is assisted by his daughter, Violet Grgich, Vice President of Operations, and his nephew, Ivo Jeramaz, Vice President of Vineyards and Production. For more information, visit www.grgich.com.

Andretti Winery Unveils Latest Edition to its Visiting Chef Program
Andretti’s Napa valley Winery teams-up with il Posto at L’italia in vigneto
Known for its majestic setting, Tuscan-inspired estate and great CalItal style wine, the Andretti Winery continues its tradition of creating memorable dining experiences with the addition of Il Posto chef Adam Clark to its roster of visiting chefs. Throughout the season, winery guests will be able to savor the traditional Italian fare of Napa Valley’s Il Posto Trattoria, paired with signature Andretti wines. With the addition of the Il Posto Trattoria cuisine, the winery further enhances its year-round dining program. Founded by legendary race car driver Mario Andretti, the Andretti estate is home to a 42-acre vineyard, winery, barrel-aging chai and an Italianate dining room, in which Il Posto Trattoria will offer elegant and simple lunches and dinners. “The philosophy behind the Andretti Winery dining experiences is to create a place to celebrate family, friends, food and life, the traditional Italian way,” commented Mario Andretti, winery founder. At Andretti, Il Posto will be creating dinners and lunches, all paired with Andretti wines. Andretti Winery is renowned for its portfolio of fine wines featuring traditional regional varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as luxury Italian varietals, Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio and Dolcetto. “Il Posto’s cuisine is an ideal complement to our portfolio,” commented Joe Antonini, Chairman and Cofounder of Andretti. “The style, the quality and the commitment to top notch seasonal Italian fare are what we’re all about. Time spent around the table with friends and family, sharing a great meal and bottle of wine defines Andretti. ” A sample dinner menu might include a first course of roasted beets, house-made ricotta, hazelnuts, arugula, a second course of raviolo, egg yolk, nettle ricotta, pancetta, watercress, followed by a main course of rabbit cacciatore-porcini, orzo, carrots and finished with a dessert of dark chocolate tiramisu, all paired with Andretti wines. At Andretti Winery, dinner is served at 7 p.m., lunch at noon. The price for dinner is $95 per person; lunch is $80 per person, both with a 16-guests maximum. Dinner dates are March 30, April 13, April 20, May 17, May 25, June 8, June 22, July 5, July 19. Lunch dates are April 27, July 27. Events are private and by appointment only. To make reservations, call Tenaya at 1-888-460-8463 Ext. 229 . Reservations should be made at least 48 hours prior to requested dates. Located in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley, Andretti Winery exudes Old World Charm. Modeled after a rambling Italian village, the winery conjures up the boyhood home of its namesake, Mario Andretti, considered to be the greatest race car driver of all time.

Welcome to

YOUNTVILLE
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
YOUNTVILLE CROSS RD To Silverado Trail

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 inaugural BottleRock Napa Valley will be held May 9-12, in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley, featuring more than 60 artists, bands and performers from a variety of genres, including rock, soul/R&B, country, hip-hop, comedy and more during an incredibly diverse, four-day festival. Scheduled to appear are Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Zac Brown Band, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, Jane’s Addiction, The Shins, The Avett Brothers, Train, The Flaming Lips, The Black Crowes, Cake, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Primus, Alabama Shakes, Jackson Browne, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Dirty Projectors, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Dwight Yoakam, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Violent Femmes, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Blues Traveler, Iron & Wine, Grouplove, Cafe Tacuba, The Wallflowers, Brandi Carlile, Bad Religion, Andrew Bird, Matt Nathanson, X and many more.

The show is available to all 3- and 4-day BottleRock festival pass holders and individual tickets will be sold to this show as well. On May 9, BottleRock Napa Valley will officially begin. Each day will include a stellar lineup of many of the most sought-after and established names in music sprinkled with an exciting array of emerging performers, creating a one-of-a kind music and comedy extravaganza that will be the signature of BottleRock Napa Valley. On Thursday, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, The Avett

Black Keys

Brothers, The Black Crowes and Primus will energize the crowd on the first full night of BottleRock Napa Valley. Friday brings multiple Grammy Award winners and nominees, including The Black Keys, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Alabama Shakes and more to the main stages. On Saturday the headliners include Kings of Leon, Jackson Browne, Jane’s Addiction, Bad Religion, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros supported by many others. Sunday’s schedule closes the weekend with a full lineup anchored by the Zac Brown Band, Cake, Train, and Rodrigo y Gabriela. An up-to-date festival lineup can be found online at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com, with updates as acts are added. Festival passes begin at $139 for a single day pass, and $399 for a four-day pass. Three-day passes are sold out. Individual tickets for the May 8 Macklemore and Ryan Lewis show are $29. Three-day and four-day passes also include the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis show. Passes are on sale at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com. “The genesis of BottleRock springs from the great live entertainment gift that is the Uptown Theatre. The long awaited downtown Napa renaissance has inspired us to bring an eclectic and broad group of world class music and performers to our home town,” said BottleRock Co-Founder Gabriel Meyers. “The Napa Valley has set such a high standard for wine, food and hospitality that we feel that the time is right to add an amazing music festival to the mix. It will be great to see foodies, wine lovers and BottleRockers exploring the Valley by day and then coming together in downtown Napa for an evening of after parties. BRNV will be a different kind of music festival by virtue of its location in the Valley and Downtown Napa. Where else will you see winemakers, chefs and artists mingling with patrons before, during and after the music? The chance to raise money for all of our community and charitable partners is really exciting and motivating as well.” Situated on three stages spread over 26 acres on the grounds at the Napa Valley Expo in the City of Napa, BottleRock Napa Valley attendees will enjoy the best in wine and food from many of the finest vintner and culinary talents of the legendary Napa Valley.

Approximately 60 vintner partners, along with artisanal micro-brewers, will be paired with dozens of Napa Valley restaurateurs and chefs, ensuring that BottleRock Napa Valley will provide a complementary culinary festival experience second to none. In contrast to other festivals where tens of thousands are packed into a dusty, crowded field, BottleRock Napa Valley will offer incredible venue sight lines, unsurpassed civility, unparalleled artist access and intimacy, and creature comforts that reflect the hospitable spirit of the Napa Valley. Doors to the Expo will open at noon, and performances will begin around 12:30 p.m. each day, so attendees can enjoy the beautiful Napa Valley during festival mornings. After the final encore each evening, the City of Napa will come alive with dozens of VIP after parties at restaurants, art galleries and wine tasting rooms, all along the City of Napa’s Oxbow District, Restaurant Row and West End, and all within an easy four block walking distance from the Napa Valley Expo and the many downtown Napa Hotels. More information can be found at www.bottlerocknapavalley.com, or visit Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Bottle Rock Napa Valley, or on Twitter at https://twitter.com/BottleRockNapa, #bottlerocknapavalley.

Serenity, Wonder and Spirit Photography Exhibit
Awe, celebration, stillness, faith and beauty are expressed in large, color exhibition prints by acclaimed photographer Jeffrey A. davis
Memorable moments from wilderness regions, sacred sites and diverse cultures all over the world captured by photographer Jeffrey A. Davis is on display in Serenity, Wonder, and Spirit, a new exhibit at the Fine Art Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa winery in Rutherford. The exhibit runs through January 5, 2014. From the awe and wonder of the Northern Lights to the quiet, raw expression of the first rays of morning light touching down on a lone iceberg, the images included in Serenity, Wonder and Spirit share compelling stories and cherished moments from Davis’ travels to Norway, Japan, Tibet, Iceland, Namibia, Tanzania, India, Myanmar and the United States. “For me, travel is a passion and a gift. Photography deepens my experience,” comments Davis. “At times, when I open and invest myself, serendipity strikes – serenity, wonder and spirit are seen and felt. These are some of the memories I wish to share.” Exhibitions of Davis’ photographs have been presented at notable US and Canadian institutions such as Stanford University, the MOAT Gallery in Vancouver, Banff Mountain Centre for the Arts, San Francisco City Hall and the Telluride Mountain Film Festival. Mumm Napa is one of California’s top sparkling wine producers and one of the most popular destinations for wine country visitors. For more than 20 years, Mumm Napa sparkling wines have set the standard for California méthode traditionelle sparkling wine, emphasizing the exceptional qualities of Napa Valley fruit along with the unique casual elegance of the Napa Valley lifestyle. The winery and visitor center are located in Rutherford along the Silverado Trail in the Napa Valley and are open daily for tours, tastings and private events.

Napa Valley is the most famous wine region in the United States and St. Helena has the distinction of being the birthplace of the Napa Valley wine industry. Nearly 150 years ago in 1861, Charles Krug established a winery just north of the town of St. Helena. In 1874, the St. Helena Viticultural Club was established by the “who’s who” of Napa Valley vintners, businessmen and pioneers of the time. Today, St. Helena thrives as an important, historic Napa Valley community.

WINERY Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 2001 Highway 128 in Geyserville CA. Private tours and tastings are available by appointment 1-800-546-7718 | www.delorimierwinery.com

DELORIMIER

deLorimier Winery is located just a hop, skip and jump north of the wine-drenched hamlet of Healdsburg. Wind your way along gently curving Highway 128 through the vineyard-striped hills of the Alexander Valley, stop in Geyserville and pick up some picnic supplies and come relax at one of deLorimier Winery’s beautiful picnic areas. The landscaping surrounding the winery is natural and minimalist – native grasses, plants and large local boulders compliment the weathered wood shingles and green roofs of the winery and tasting room. A fountain burbles merrily in the central courtyard. Tables and chairs are scattered all around the picnic areas that surround the buildings. The winery is surrounded by Merlot, Primitivo (a grape very closely related to Zinfandel) and Sauvignon Blanc vines. In fact, visitors may step off of any of the patios and instantly be standing amidst the vineyards. The tasting room is large and airy, with open-beam ceilings, dyed cement floors and lots of windows to let in the Alexander Valley sunshine. A copper-topped horseshoe-shaped bar spans the back of the room and a fireplace adorns one wall. A private tasting room sits just off the main room and is available for use by appointment. A tasteful array of gift items, including logoed clothing, hats, glassware and more is artfully displayed around the tasting room. Speaking of art, every three months a different local artist displays their work on the tasting room walls. deLorimier Winery is one of the few in the area that hosts weddings and private events. There are a handful of event venues available on the property, along with a gorgeous twobedroom guesthouse for overnight accommodations. The wines at deLorimier Winery are fantastic! I enjoyed every wine I tasted. The following wines were my favorites: 2010 Stuhlmuller Reserve Chardonnay ($36): One sniff and there’s no doubt you’re in for a classic Chardonnay! Aromas of buttered toast, baked apple and citrus all play nicely together from the first sip, through the creamy finish and on through the finish. 2009 Mosaic Meritage ($40): This wine is elegance defined! Alluring aromas of black cherry, cassis, spice box and pipe tobacco delight the nose and continue as flavors in the richly textured mouth.

Thomas Henry Wine Label Wins International Design Award
Sonoma’s Thomas Henry wine brand, a division of Meadowcroft Wines, has been named by HOW Magazine in its 2013 International Design Award annual issue as a WorldClass Design Award Winner. The March issue of the magazine lists all the award winners in design categories including packaging, logos, annual reports and others. “Thomas Henry Wines is honored to have been chosen as one of the International Design Winners of 2013,” said Thomas Henry Meadowcroft, winemaker and owner of Meadowcroft Wines. “I am very proud of the design team of Shawn Rosenberger and Jennie McGee at Thermostat Design in Berkeley and to strategist Erin Fray of Luminous Brands for their creative efforts on this project. Creating a great design for our Thomas Henry label was our intent. Having that design win international recognition is certainly the icing on the cake.” The HOW International Design Awards recognizes excellence on a global scale. Three widely recognized and respected international designers are flown in to judge entries submitted in the design competition. Winners span the globe and give readers of HOW a taste of design innovation on an international scale. “Thomas Henry Wines embody the spirit of my father who enjoyed life and the great outdoors,” says Tom Meadowcroft. “The design of the new Thomas Henry label utilizes a free-flying dragonfly that spells out Thomas Henry to highlight outdoor adventure in a fun and casual feeling that celebrates the ‘joie de vivre.’” The Meadowcroft Wines includes the Meadowcroft, Thomas Henry and Foyt Family labels. All of the award-winning, world-class wines are crafted by Tom Meadowcroft and poured daily at its tasting room located within the Cornerstone Sonoma community (23574 Arnold Drive/Hwy 121 in Sonoma) that also features shops, art galleries, a sculpture walk, a restaurant, and 24 world-class architectural gardens all set among acres of vineyards. Meadowcroft Wines is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information or to make reservations, call (707) 934-4090.

Zipper Closing Cornerstone Sonoma Location April 30th
Zipper, one of Sonoma’s most popular gift and design stores located at Cornerstone Sonoma, will be closing its doors on April 30th. After more than 20 years in retail, owners Elizabeth Cashour and Steven Saden have decided to close Zipper to embark on a year of travel throughout the U.S, Europe and Asia.

As a special farewell offering, from March 20 through April 28 Zipper will feature a special gallery of California artists, jewelers, glass blowers and potters as well as vintage items from the owners’ private collection.

Additionally, throughout March and April, Zipper will offer sales throughout the store with discounts ranging from 35-90%. “We loved having our store in Sonoma and we will certainly miss all of our fantastic customers,” said Elizabeth Cashour. “After our travels, we look forward to what’s next for us here in beautiful wine country.

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

The town of Sonoma offers visitors highly acclaimed wines, culinary adventures and insights into the rich cultural heritage that has led Sonoma to being one of the world’s premier wine producing regions. Located just a short walk from the Historic Sonoma Plaza is Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery, the only winery in Sonoma to continue operations during Prohibition. This historic winery began as a dream for Samuele Sebastiani who emigrated from Tuscany in 1895 and started the winery nine years later. In 2001, the tasting room and hospitality center underwent a major renovation so guests could embrace the romantic Tuscan character through the new cultural and historic programs offered. In addition, the production facility was upgraded with a renewed focus on small-lot artisan winemaking. Bill Foley, vintner and entrepreneur, acquired the winery in 2008 and as part of Foley Family Wines, Sebastiani is committed to crafting appellation specific wines of Sonoma County. Their grounds are lush with olive trees and outdoor tables are set upon the cobblestone patio for you to enjoy a picnic with a glass of your favorite Sebastiani wine. Wine tastings are $10-$20 for a flight of seven wines. They are currently pouring their new release 2010 Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon. This food friendly wine features aromas of licorice and red fruits with great structure and depth. The newly released 2011 Sonoma County Chardonnay is an understated, balanced and refreshing wine that is ideal for the warm season ahead. They are also pouring their 2010 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon and 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. In May, the newest wine to be released will be the 2012 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc. Daily complimentary historical tours are presented at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. and offer guests a chance to see first-hand the winery’s history. Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery also offers indepth tours and tastings for guests that would like a more intimate experience. They are also known for hosting some exciting summer events. April 30th kicks off their Food Truck Friday night and music event. Food Truck Friday’s are a locals’ favorite and occur on the last Friday of the month and continue through September 27. Purchase a bottle of Sebastiani wine and enjoy gourmet food from one of the mobile trucks. They also host a summer concert series starting on Friday, May 28. The tasting room is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. So, whether you come for a wine tasting, or to stay for a picnic on their lawn, there is always something to enjoy at Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery. For more information or upcoming events, visit their website at www.sebastiani.com.

Sonoma Plaza, a National Historic Landmark, is originally home to the last of the chain of 21 California missions. Throughout its colorful history – including the Bear Flag Revolt where the California state flag was first raised in 1842 – the small-town epicenter is now home to some 25 gourmet dining establishments, 40 boutique shops and art galleries as well as 18 unique tasting rooms. A well-known tourist destination, visitors come to Sonoma to experience the idyllic Wine Country lifestyle. Sure, doublewide tractors may grace the two-lane Highway 12, wide-open ranchlands blanket the valley between towns, and wooly sheep keep weeds and grasses minimal in the vineyards. But, no doubt, you will also find countless award-winning wineries and world-class restaurants in Sonoma. Sonoma is all about life, about taste and enjoying each day.

Mendocino County’s ‘Where the Earth IS First’ Festival Celebrates with Ten Days of Whales, Wine, Music, Food
Mendocino County is often called the “greenest” county in California. And for good reason. Mendocino was the first county in the US to ban genetically modified organisms, grows more organic grapes than any other region in the world and has long been recognized as a pioneer in the sustainable revolution. Ecologically inspired travelers seek out Mendocino, and this year the county is hosting its second-ever countywide “Where the Earth IS First” Festival, where visitors can take part in a range of eco-friendly activities. Special events planned in April make it easier for visitors to enjoy the organic food and wine available and take advantage of special lodging packages, all while communing with nature and renewing their spirit. Centered around Earth Day (April 22), the nine-day celebration – April 19-28 – highlights eco-friendly, earthconscious and sustainable living.

Pebble Beach Food & Wine Announces an Unprecedented Lineup of Chefs, Winemakers, Culinary Icons and More
Four days of epicurean excellence at Pebble Beach Resorts’ sixth Annual event, April 4-7
California’s iconic Pebble Beach Resorts, home to legendary golf, equestrian and classic-car events, plays host to the Sixth Annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine, presented by FOOD&WINE Magazine, from April 4-7. Following the much-heralded success of last year’s Fifth Anniversary, Pebble Beach Food & Wine continues its reign as the premier food and wine event in the country. This four-day celebration brings together more than 100 prominent chefs and over 250 acclaimed wineries and distinguished winemakers from around the world to Pebble Beach for a first-class display of epicurean splendor and unrivaled access. In addition to cooking demonstrations led by some of the most talented chefs and vertical tastings from top wine producers, unique experiences are added each year making this a not-to-miss annual event for anyone serious about food and wine. Living up to its reputation, wine aficionados are recognizing the vintners and wineries’ pouring at Pebble Beach Food & Wine as among the very best Old and New World producers the wine industry has to offer. This year, more than 250 jury-selected winemakers will interact with guests in a variety of settings that include over 20 different elite tastings of special vintages and rare wines; two Grand Tasting events offering more than 500 wines; and multiple wine-paired luncheons and intimate dinners. This year’s lineup of chefs proves, yet again, the unparalleled access to the culinary world found only at Pebble Beach Food & Wine. Revered chefs, including Daniel Boulud, Grant Achatz, Pierre

Gagnaire, Christopher Kostow, Dominique Crenn, Michelle Bernstein, Dean Fearing, Danny Meyer, Masaharu Morimoto, Francois Payard, Abram Bissell, Charles Phan, Tyler Florence, Anne Burrell and Laurent Tourondel, to name a few, join together to offer cooking demonstrations throughout the weekend in addition to an array of exclusive dining experiences. To purchase tickets, or for more information, visit www.pbfw.com or call 1-866-907-FOOD (3663). Ticket prices per person range from $100 for a single event pass to $4,750 for a VIP four-day pass, which provides access to all events and private after-hour parties with the chefs and winemakers. Pebble Beach Food & Wine is proud to continue its partnership with the Monterey County Wine Educational Foundation to contribute to local charities including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County, Voices for Children and The Pebble Beach Company Foundation.

Carmel Valley’s East End Wine Row’s Spring Celebration
Watch Live Chef demos, Learn About gardening, enjoy small Bites and support voices For Children of Monterey County.
Sip, Savor, Learn, Shop and Celebrate at the “Spring Celebration” at Carmel Valley’s East End Wine Row, which features the tasting rooms of Chesebro Wines, Cima Collina, Dawn’s Dream Winery, Holman Ranch, Joyce Vineyards and Parsonage Family Winery. The Tasting Rooms, all located at 19 E. Carmel Valley Road in Carmel Valley Village, will join together to present an unforgettable celebration of food, wine, cooking demos and garden tips not to be missed. On Sunday, April 28th from 1 to 5 p.m., a ticket to the “Spring Celebration” will entitle you to: appetizers and wine tasting at all East End Wine Row tastings rooms; live chef demonstrations, tastings and recipe ideas from three local chefs; celebrate the art of edible herb garden; learn about raised bed gardening, learn how to prepare a site and how to use herbs; and listen to live music from 2 to 4 p.m. Cost $35 per person. $5 per ticket sales goes to VOICES of Monterey County. Participants must be 21 or older to purchase tickets and space is limited to 250 people. Tickets are available at www.eventbrite.com/event/5416330390, at each winery’s website, in the tasting rooms or online at www.eastendwinerow.com. East End Wine Row is an association of Camel Valley tasting rooms located at the east end of the Village on Carmel Valley Road. Comprising six unique tasting rooms, the East End Wine Row is not overly crowded and provides a warm, personal interaction with tasting hosts and winemakers. Carmel Valley is one of the seven appellations that make up Monterey County's diverse wine country and is perhaps the most distinct. Nestled into the towering Santa Lucia Range, Carmel Valley geographically defies daytime zephyrs and fogs, yielding the warm summer and fall days and cool nights that are especially favorable to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and other red varietals. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel also perform exceptionally well in Carmel Valley.
